The Young Investor: Projects and Activities for Making Your Money Grow

The Young Investor: Projects and Activities for Making Your Money Grow

Looking for some spring break or summer projects for your tweens and teens? Why not look at the economy, and start planning ahead?

Kids can never start too young thinking about their financial future. The book The Young Investor is a great way to get them started on the path to financial success and independence.

It was written by a grandmother, Katherine Bateman, who wanted to teach her own grandchildren the importance of money and how to invest it sensibly.

She has a vast knowledge of the investment banking sector, having been the CEO of a major investment bank.

It is never too early to start thinking about your financial future, and how you are going to meet many of life’s goals.

This book is geared toward teens and young adults. The author talks about a variety of topics including basic economics, budgeting, investments, banking, saving, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, risk tolerance, and much more.

The author uses everyday experiences and current examples to get these basic but essential ideas across. She uses a story of the Young Investor at the end of each chapter throughout the book to demonstrate and review in an understandable way the points made earlier on.

The book also features a bibliography, websites, phone numbers and a glossary.

This is a fantastic book for every budding investor who wants to learn the language of business and investing. It would make a great gift for any young teenager, or teen getting ready to face the world and their own financial responsibility.
