To invest generally means to risk your money in order to gain more funds. There can be several types
of investments. For example, one can create consumer goods, and sell them at a higher price than the
one involved in the manufacturing process, thus creating profit. You are then called an
"entrepreneur".

On the other hand, you could produce goods that are at your own disposal, for example, invest in a
farm, so that milk, eggs, cereals and vegetables will be fresh and at your disposal 24/7. You could also
lend your goods, charging a certain fee, depending on the value of the product, or even invest in a
share of a business.

The investment factor is very important for the present economic growth, due to the fact that this
section covers meaning of investment, trend in investment and investment companies over the world.
They also increase the production capacity of the economy

However, you must always remember that investments cannot be done without Savings, which, of
course, provide the funds necessary for it. Another important factor is the Rate of Interest. When this
one falls, the other one (the rate of investment) grows.

You may have heard of mutual funds. These are also called "open-end" investment companies, and
they come in three main types: stock funds, bond funds and money market funds. The Closed-end
funds are investment companies that issue a fixed number of shares, which trade on a stock
exchange. Unit investment trusts are investment companies that buy and hold a generally fixed
portfolio of stocks, bonds, or other securities, and the Exchange-traded funds are investment
companies whose shares are traded on stock exchanges at a price that is determined by the market.

If you feel like doing something useful with your money, but you lack the knowledge, be sure that
there is someone there to help you. The Investment Company Institute Education Foundation (ICIEF)
is one place you can turn to, stimulating your brain with programs such as Investing for Success, a
partnership of the National Urban League, Hispanic College Fund, Inc., and the Stock Market Game, a
partnership with the Foundation for Investor Education to include mutual fund education in secondary-
school curricula.

You just need to have the courage and determination to become an investor, and to have the capacity
to understand that if you get the hold of things, it may change your life forever.

For many people, taking the plunge into investing can be a daunting experience. They may have little
investment knowledge or limited funds. Joining or starting an investment club is a great way to learn
about investing in stock or real estate. Investment clubs enable members to pool their money for joint
investment so you don't need to have massive capital to start investing.

Finding an online investment club


There are many online investment clubs available. To start with, choose an investment club that fits
your investing style and interests. Do you want to invest in stock or real estate? If you are a male (or
female), do you prefer to join an all-men (or all-women) or mixed investment club?

Finding a good fit is important for an online investment club. Keep in mind what your main objective is
for joining a club. If you are new to investing and need support and knowledge, be sure to choose a
club that offers lots of hand-holding for its members.
Another important feature of an online investment club is the forum or discussion board. It allows
members to communicate with each other since they don't meet face to face. They can ask and
answer questions. Newbies can learn a lot from others who are more knowledgeable and experienced.
People from all over the world can join an online investment club. Distance is not a problem as the
internet has made it possible for them to stay connected.

Choose a long established online investment club that is in line with your approach to investing. You
should contact the club directly if you have any questions. Enquire about its past and current
investment performance.

Finding an offline (or local) investment club


For people who have time to socialize, they may prefer to join a local investment club. These clubs are
similar to online clubs except that members meet locally, typically once a month, to discuss and
evaluate what stocks to invest.

The meetings incorporate educational talks on various investing subjects. You have the opportunity to
hear investment experts speak and share their experience
