Do you want to know how much you are losing every time you delay investing?
Look at the computation below.
This computation is based on a 12% annual rate of return. Interest earned is compounded until age 65.
On the left side of computation, if you start investing at age 25 until age 29. Saving Php 2,000 every month or Php 24,000 every year. A total contribution of Php 120,000 and forget about it until you aged 65, your money will grow to Php 10,098,259 on estimate.
However, if you keep on delaying and you start investing at age 30 to 34 with the same amount and you keep that until age 65. You will have more or less Php 5,730,023.

How is that possible that you invested the same amount and end up with different result?Answer: Time.
You don’t need much money to build a fortune if you have time. This is the effect of the compounding interest. The longer time you have for your money to compound, the better. So it is advisable and we are encouraging young people to start early because they have the advantage.
If you are on the later stage and still wanted to invest, we encourage you to do so. It is still advisable to start as much as possible. Your investment depends on your financial goals.
Time is Gold.
Give your older self a gift by having millions for your retirement. You will never know when will you ever need it, hope you never need it for illness but still we’ll never know. Better to be prepared than go wishy washy now and be poor later.
Hope to see you start in your investing journey.
