Seven-Year Old Investor Beats Harvard’s Endowment Fund
Seven-year old Riley Taylor was eating chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast.
I put a piece of paper in front of her. It contained a list of seventeen countries. Each represented a different country’s stock market index fund.
“Riley, please pick five of these countries,” I asked.
She chose Japan first. “I chose Japan because I really like dumplings,” she said.
Riley picked Italy next. “Gelato comes from Italy,” she said. “And I really like Gelato.”
She followed up with three other countries: Canada, Singapore and France.
