IMO A...
Option B is unnecessarily wordy and does not convey the right meaning...
A is clear and concise

Any reasons that B is incorrect. Is being wordy the only reason?

I don't think you can say "more investing", only "more people". Eliminate
(B) While people have more and more been investing their money

Passive voice, the subject in the second part of the sentence is people, not money. Eliminate:
(C) As money is more and more invested by people

The "more and more" should describe the increase in people/investors rather than their action. Eliminate
(D) More and more, when investors put their money
(E) While, more and more, investors have been putting their money

Ans A
(A) As more and more people invest their money

Can someone please explain what's wrong with E? E maintains the llism of "abandoning" and "putting".

The correct usage is investing money and not putting money.
