Why you should invest.
When your money is just sitting around in your bank account it can lose value due to inflation and negative interest. Investing your money is a good way to counter this and make money from your money.
Historically speaking, it's also a good idea to invest. In the last 49 years, the stock market has risen by approximately 8% per year. The sooner you begin investing, the better.
For example, if you’d invested 500 DKK in the S&O 500-index each month from the start of 2016 until the end of 2020, in five years, it would’ve become 42,700 DKK, with compound interest. That's an annual return of 8.5% and 42.5% or 12,700 DKK over 5 years.
