Creator O'Shaughnessy, Patrick, Author O'Shaughnessy, Patrick, Summary "Fact: the Millennial Generation will not be able to rely on pensions and social security in retirement. Instead, they will have to save and invest in the global stock market to meet their goals. When it comes to thinking about money, Millennials are, as a generation, different from their parents.

They are skeptical of expert advice, yet more committed than baby boomers to passing wealth on to future generations. To build wealth, young people must start investing early and buck conventional market wisdom.

They are also worried about their financial situations and avoiding making financial mistakes. Non-millennials, by contrast, had a 23 percent average allocation to cash — a much more appropriate number. As the survey report says of our high cash position, Clearly this allocation is not just based on cash needs, but reflects wariness about financial markets. In the spirit of Liam's conservative approach, millennials in the survey only had 28 percent allocated to stocks, while older generations had an average of 46 percent allocated to stocks.
This is a vexing contradiction, because to end up like Grace we need to own more stocks and less cash. Cash may seem safe, but as we shall see it is risky in the long run.
Now go talk about it.
The good news is that young people today have more investing advantages than any group in history. Youth itself is our most important advantage, but never before have young people had such easy, cheap, and diverse access to global markets. Thanks to innovation and competition in finance, you can now buy anything you want with the click of a button. From domestic stocks, emerging market stocks, bonds, and real estate to commodities like gold, silver, palladium, wheat, corn, and livestock and the list goes on , a huge range of investments is available to us, all for a low fee.
The variety of choices can be daunting, but the simplest choices still work the best. Before explaining why stocks are the key to wealth, we must first understand why youth is such a formidable investing advantage. When I was seven years old and in first grade, before realizing how destructive it could be to my playground reputation, I played competitive chess.
With time to kill between tournament games, my dad would often tell me the story of the chess master and the emperor.

The story went that the inventor of chess was showing the new game to his emperor and the emperor was so impressed that he offered the man any reward that he desired. The man's clever request was that the emperor place one piece of rice on the first square of the chessboard, two on the second, four on the third, and so on, doubling the rice grains until all 64 squares were filled. Trying to teach me a lesson, my dad would then give me two choices for a reward of my own: I could do the same chessboard doubling with pennies instead of rice grains, or have one million dollars.
At the time, I was only able to double numbers up to 32 or 64, and much more concerned with when I was going to be able to play Mortal Kombat again than with his damn riddles, so I chose the million bucks. This was my first lesson in the miracle of compounding, a very simple, but very powerful, bit of math. Compounding is so important for young people because each year of our lives is like a square on the chessboard — and we have a lot of spaces left ahead of us. Compounding is the engine that will make our stock portfolios grow, and time is the fuel. The key to compounding returns is that they have a much larger influence on our fortunes later in life than they do early on.
Even if the percentage gains that we earn stay the same every year, the dollar gains will be much larger in later years. The doubling pennies in Table 1. Again think of each square as a year of your life.

In the early squares — which represent our 20s and 30s — the dollar gains are small. But in the later squares — our 50s and 60s — the same doubling results in massive dollar gains with each new square. Your stock investments won't ever double in value in one year, but even at much lower annual growth rates, compounding is still a powerful force. Because the magic happens later on, the year you start investing has a huge influence on where you end up. Imagine that you and two friends all make investments in the stock market at various points in your careers and all earn the same 7 percent annual return, after inflation, that stocks have delivered across history.
The only difference is time spent in the market. Other than time, the only other variables that could have made a difference to these hypothetical investors are the annual investment amount and the annual return. But neither higher returns nor larger investments can make up for lost time. As this example makes clear, each year is precious and there is no substitute for time. Even if you are in your 30s or 40s and haven't started investing, you should start investing now.
As the Turkish proverb says, No matter how far you have gone on the wrong road, turn back. Liam didn't fail because he was too conservative; he failed because the options that he thought were safe his savings account and bonds were in fact dangerous long-term investments. Savings and bonds are dangerous for millennial investors because we are the first complete generation born into a world where the value of our money has no anchor. Without an anchor, the value of each dollar and any cash that you hold deteriorates over time as our governments print more money.

Let the brightest, most insightful minds in investing help. Guy Spier. What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett?
He becomes a real value investor. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder. Spier's journey is similar to the thousands that flock to Wall Street every year with their shiny new diplomas, aiming to be King of Wall Street. Yet what Guy realized just in the nick of time was that the King really lived 1, miles away in Omaha, Nebraska.
Spier determinedly set out to create a new career in his own way. Along the way he learned some powerful lessons which include: why the right mentors and partners are critical to long term success on Wall Street; why a topnotch education can sometimes get in the way of your success; that real learning doesn't begin until you are on your own; and how the best lessons from Warren Buffett have less to do with investing and more to do with being true to yourself.
Spier also reveals some of his own winning investment strategies, detailing deals that were winners but also what he learned from deals that went south. Part memoir, part Wall Street advice, and part how-to, Guy Spier takes readers on a ride through Wall Street but more importantly provides those that want to take a different path with the insight, guidance, and inspiration they need to carve out their own definition of success.
