5,000 euros is not the world, but it is definitely a start: If you have not yet invested in the capital market, you can approach it in tranches and take your first steps with 5,000 euros. The sum is well suited for beginners because it is relatively manageable - and so is the risk of loss.
Of course, 5000 euros is a lot of money that you shouldn't lose carelessly. Before investors place them, they must define for themselves the purpose for which the money should flow into securities - and whether this is even necessary. With the end of negative interest rates, many banks are now offering attractive conditions for fixed-term and overnight deposits again.
