Asharq Al-Awsat, Khobar, Saudi Arabia- A fifteen year old Saudi became the country’s youngest investor Friday as he sought to benefit from the success of the stock market.

Osama al Hushan indicated that if his investment, through his parents, will help create a new segment of young affluent Saudis, this would decrease unemployment and allow the Kingdom’s citizens to dream beyond their low paid jobs.

His advice to potential investors was to follow the latest stock market news and consult specialist publications.

With his father’s support, Osama first became interested in stocks at the tender age of 13. Early gains encouraged him to increase his involvement and he has not looked back since.
