Adding A Slider Can Slow Down the loading Speed of a website?

Hi there, I have a tech-based WordPress site with a customized theme. I’m trying to make my site’s home page more good looking & attractive, that’s why I asked one of my seniors.

He said, “you should add a live slider (that shows the latest posts/blogs) for a more appealing eye look”. Though I like this idea pretty much, I’m afraid that adding a live slider can slow down the page speed of the site. So, I just wanted to ask the experts out there about this advice.

It might slow it a little (adding any plugin or extra functionality has the potential to do that).

If you use a good choice of slider and integrate it properly then the impact will be insignificant and if it then means that users are engaging better with the site then it’s entirely worth it.
