It seems paradoxical. On the one hand, many young people have no idea about taxes, insurance, in short: what to do with their own money. This is reliably demonstrated by various surveys, most recently a Postbank survey. In contrast, the under-30 group is investing more than ever, at least since the Deutsches Aktieninstitut began collecting this data in 1997. In no other year has the institute been able to measure a rate of higher growth in stock market investments by young people.
