It’s easy to understand why investments are daunting for many people. The vast scope of investment topics and concepts present a steep learning curve for first-timers adding to the risk of financial loss and general discomfort with big numbers. But this fear of taking a first step is not unusual. According to the World Economic Forum’s The Future of Capital Markets: Democratization of Retail Investing report, 40% of the non-investors chose not to invest simply because they are intimidated or find the subject too confusing.

Surprisingly, however, 70% of the respondents expressed that they were likely to invest, or invest more with better knowledge. The good news is that there is a plethora of online communities dedicated to knowing all there is to know about investment. These 7 YouTube personalities are sure to guide any investment and finance strategy.
