Hi Talia, The stock market has historically provided greater returns than other assets. However, investing in stocks has additional risk, markets go down as well as up. For long term accumulation it is important to have some money in the market. For the short term it is important to have money safe, such as in savings. Once an individual is working within a budget, andhas saved an emergency fund in a safe place, then adding stocks as a long-term investment is appropriate.
