Important life lesson
The Stock Market Game Program instills an
understanding of the need to save and invest at
an early age.
10
Saving Vs. Investing
These are Not the Same Saving money put in a
bank (savings, money market, etc.) to preserve
for a later time. Investing stocks, bonds,
mutual funds, and other uninsured assets
purchased to increase a principal amount.
Involves risk, as gains and losses are dependent
on the market.
11
Power of Compounding
  • Importance of Time
  • The more time you have to invest, the longer
    your investment can compound, or grow in value.
  • - Compounding adds your investment earnings to
    your principal, forming a larger base on which
    earnings may accumulate, thus having the
    potential to grow faster.
