The investors’ gender distribution continues to follow the previously observed trends: the proportion of female investors has remained at the level of 49.8%, while the proportion of male investors remains at 50.2%. This balance has been maintained since April 2023 and, based on the results of the first quarter of 2024, these indicators have not changed.

The age group between 35 and 54 still represents the largest number of investors, accounting for 38.7% of the total number of investors in February. Over the first quarter of 2024, there has been a slight increase of 0.7% in this age group. (38% in January)

The second largest group of investors are people aged between 25 and 34. As of April 01, 2024, they represent 31.5% of the total number of investors. Their proportion remained virtually unchanged in the first quarter of this year, rising by just 0.1%. (31.4% in January)

The third largest age group is investors aged between 18 and 24, who accounted for 15.4% of investors as of April 01,2024. In the first quarter of 2024, the proportion of young investors in this age group fell by 0.9%. (16.3% in January)

In January 2024, their proportion amounted to 14.2% and as of April 01, 2024, their proportion has risen to 14.4%. Although the increase is not significant, this age group is likely to become one of the top three in the near future, as the number of investors aged between 18 and 24, who are currently in third place, is decreasing.

In terms of territorial distribution, the traditional leaders are Almaty (20.7%) and Astana (11.2%). The Turkestan region (9.1%) is once again in third place and has been holding its own since March 2022.
