Knowing when and how to start investing can be overwhelming.
Should you wait until your debt is paid off? Wait until you get a promotion at work and have more money? Or just put all of your money into an IRA and forget about it for 30 years?
Today, only 31% of millennials are contributing to a retirement account and only 1 in 3 are investing in the stock market.*
And do you want to know the main reason? Because they feel like they cannot afford it.
I get it, you probably are working your first or second job out of college and haven’t worked your way up the corporate chain yet. Or maybe you’re trying to launch your own business and haven’t seen a paycheck yourself. There’s even a chance you are still paying off student loan debt.
Well, none of this matters. Because if you have $5 to spare, then you can start investing today with Stash.
$5. That’s one Iced Caramel Macchiato.
What is Stash?
Stash is an app that will help you begin investing and saving money. When you sign up for a Stash account, you get access to over 50 different investment options and personalized guidance on where to make investments. Connect your checking account, and all you will need is $5 to get started. They let you buy fractional shares so you can invest what you can afford. So sign up, customize your portfolio and boom, you’re an investor.
You can own top tech companies
Nearly all the investments available on Stash are exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are hand-picked by the investment committee. An ETF is an investment that bundles securities (i.e. company stocks or bonds) together based on a theme. They always rename the ETFs, so you can cut through the finance jargon and easily understand what you’re buying.
If you’re like most people, then you’ve watched all of these tech companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Google experience incredible growth over the past decade and have thought “If only I bought in when they were trading at $30”. Well, with Stash you don’t need to pay over $1,500 per share to own a piece of the tech industry’s titans. By purchasing just $5 of a tech-themed ETF on Stash, you too will own a piece of tech’s success and you may well make your own little profit on the back of the tech revolution.
Who is investing?
Stash launched in 2015 and now has over 1.8 million users. 86% of them are first-time investors. Stash has provided all of them with easy to understand investment products plus educational material about the ins and outs of investing.
