In Episode 7, Simon & Iona look more closely at the huge number of young people getting into investing and ask: what could possibly go wrong?
Research published by the financial watchdog last week found a younger, more racially diverse group of people are getting into investing, but that too many put money they can’t afford to lose into higher-risk products without doing their homework, preferring to follow trends, influencers, and their gut instinct.
