Investing can be a great way to set yourself up with a retirement fund, down payment fund, or college tuition savings. The longer the time your money has to grow, the less you have to invest.

It’s best to start investing as soon as possible even today if you can. Start by making sure your high-interest debt is under control and you have an adequate emergency fund (cash you can access quickly if you lose your job or face an unexpected event).

Investing in long-term financial assets is the key to successful wealth accumulation and preservation for your future. Most Kenyans begin to think about their future in their early 40’s when retirement is looming.

However, with the youth in Kenya making up two-thirds of the population, young Kenyans are thinking about their financial future now.

Long-term investment has an average tenure of 15+ years and is usually of low-to-moderate risk promising long-term financial growth. They are often the preferred option for retirement plans and vary based on your preferences, priorities, and amount of capital.
