How much does an investor’s age matter when applying for Canada's residency-by-investment programs?

I've heard that younger entrepreneurs/investors have a better chance of being successful in Canada's RBI programs just like in the country’s skills based Express Entry programs where the older you are, the lesser points you get. Suppose I'm 45 years of age and my equally competent spouse is 35 years old, would it be better if my wife applies as an investor/entreprenuer as a main applicant instead of me? Or age wouldn't matter?

    Between 35 and 45, age wouldn't matter. Some provincial programs would have caps on age, but the federal program does not have.
