The increased cash flow would allow you to get out from under the thumb of your parents,

I'm beginning to suspect that he has lied to his parents about his salary, and they are supporting him in several ways, including free room and board. That's why he doesn't want them to find out that he actually is putting most of his salary into investments. If they knew he had a decent salary they would ask him to pay rent, and he doesn't want to do that, because then he couldn't save as much money.

I hope I'm wrong on this, and that he really is paying them rent and isn't costing them anything. Or perhaps he is paying a small rent, but not enough to cover what he's costing them in terms of utilities and food.
