25/05/2019 - Investing in your twenties
We’ve stressed many times in this programme before the importance of starting to invest as young as possible. If you start investing in your teens and twenties, even small amounts can build up into a substantial sum by the time you retire. That’s the power of compound interest, something Albert Einstein described as the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it ... he who doesn't ... pays it. Joining Peter Lewis to tell us more was Steve Chiu, Chairman of the Institute of Financial Planners of Hong Kong.
