Rangsit University - Pathumtani, Thailand
financial investments can be a great first step in learning how to invest, knowing your path to retirement, or maximizing the rate of return on your money. A financial investment is an asset that you put money into with the hope that it will grow or appreciate into a larger sum of money. The idea is that you can later sell it at a higher price or earn money on it while you own it. You may be looking to grow something over the next year, such as saving up for a car, or over the next 30 years, such as saving for retirement. How you invest these dollars can be very different. How much time you have on your side is often a key thing to consider when making a financial investment. The more time you have, the more risk you can usually take. The more risk you take, the more potential for making more money! It is important to note that there is also an economic definition of financial investments that deals with how businesses invest in products, equipment, factories, employees, and inventories. This lesson will focus on the finance definition of financial investment. Let's look at a few key terms worth knowing when it comes to financial investments.
