Stock Investing Without Too Much Risk Stock Investing for Millennials Millennials are more likely than other generations to be risk-averse. They hold 52 of their savings in cash and only 28 in stocks per a UBS study. For other generations the weightings are nearly the reverse: 23 in cash and 46 in stocks. A 2013 Accenture report found that 43 of Millennials identify as conservative investors whereas just 27 of Gen Xers and 31 of Boomers do. And 43 said they would never be comfortable investing in the stock market in a MFS Investment Management study. Invest Aggressively Now But investing conservatively — or investing very little and holding your money in cash — runs counter to conventional investment advice for the young which says invest aggressively now while your long-time horizon will allow you to recover from any losses so you can reap the compounding benefits of growth. If you’re a gun-shy Millennial investor or a risk-averse investor of any age learn how to try out stock investing without getting burned.
