Have you watched your mom or dad look at the stock pages since you were a little tyke? Finally you've grown up and have a little bit of extra money and would like to invest in stocks or bonds and we're here today to talk about how old you have to be to be an investor. Generally you have to be over 18 to do it. That may be higher in some locations and it may differ very much per country. Just look carefully at the contract that you sign to open an account because in the very bottom it will tell you what the minimum conditions to open an account might be. But think 18, think longer term especially if you are 18 and you'll do very well. I'm Roger Groh for Grohasset Management and thank you for spending time with me.
