An educated investor is better equipped to manage their money and more
confident when making investment decisions. This is why teaching
financial literacy and building confidence early on is key, as it gives
investors the opportunity to build more wealth throughout their
lifetime. If a young adult were to invest $24,000 between ages 21 and 41
– assuming an 8 percent annual return – at age 67 they would save
approximately $412,000 more than an adult who invested the same $24,000
between ages 47 and 67, thanks to the potential of interest returns over
time1.

TD Ameritrade wants to help investors get started on their financial
journey sooner, which is why it's providing education ideas and
resources to investors throughout the entire month of April.

The agenda
includes:

   
Week Topic

investment process even over a long period of time does not eliminate
the risk of experiencing investment losses. This is a hypothetical
example, as the investment process typically has ups and downs along the
way.
