Is it worth opening an investment account if you will be moving out of the US in a couple of years?

I don’t yet have an investment account (either in the States or elsewhere) and I am eager to begin but wonder if I have to be in the US for my investments to grow, or to add funds to my account.

Will add for info that I am a Canadian temporarily working in the USA, although ‘temporarily’ is a broad term. Have been here three years and don’t know where I’ll be or when!

You do not have to be in the US for your investments to grow, Canadians can buy US securities from their Canadian broker.
