Frequently asked questions
An investment is an asset or item acquired to generate future income. Investing money in assets that appreciate over time is a practice that many people use to generate wealth. An item appreciating over time simply means that its value has increased. Investing is oriented toward potential growth, which means there is always some risk involved. There are cases when investments fail to generate revenue or depreciate over time. When an item depreciates, it has lost some value. A good example is investing in a company that eventually goes bankrupt. Risk is the easiest way to differentiate between investing and saving.
