CapitalistLAD is a financial blog written by two young lads. The blog title is an adaptation of the famous UK entertainment media site UNILAD. The blog strives to educate millennials about finance, business, and the economy through engaging content with a generous serving of humour in every article. Financial apathy amongst millennials is a growing concern that should be addressed, preferably by millennials like the authors themselves. Both authors contributing to the blog had started their investment journey in their teen years and they believe that anyone with the right knowledge and attitude towards the financial markets can do the same.
