Early Investing

Early investing allows your investment to compound over time, which may help you reach your goal. That's why the best time to begin investing for higher education is now.

As you can see, the five years of growth and compounding that were lost by starting later significantly impacts the total amount available when your child starts college. That's the power of giving your investments time to grow.
