What is the FIRE investment movement?

FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) is an investment movement with the goal of building sufficient wealth to be able to afford to live from the income generated by your investments alone, opening up the option to retire early.

At its core, FIRE places a heavy emphasis on setting an aggressive rate of savings, preferably as early in your life as possible (start as soon as you earn income, with the aim to have the option to retire in your 30s). By saving aggressively, and investing those savings, compounded investment returns result can rapidly increase your capital wealth to the point where the interest/return/dividends from your investments are sufficient to cover your living expenses in perpetuity.
