Basics of Portfolio investments
The concept of an investment portfolio resembles the idea of indices. Similar to an index, an investment portfolio is a set of stocks. However, unlike the index, the investment portfolio is compiled by a trader.
Experts define two types of investment portfolios. The first one, aggressive, is associated with higher risks. Alongside this, it has better prospects to bring a big profit. If you aren’t afraid of taking big risks for the sake of potentially big profits, an aggressive investment portfolio is your choice. If not, consider creating a conservative portfolio. It’s rather a passive option that is more reliable. It might be less profitable, as a rule, however, in this case, you are more confident that it won’t fail.
Portfolio investments satisfy the conditions of various strategies. If you are willing to take short-term profits, our recommendation is to choose highly liquid shares that can be sold soon after the purchase. For long-term strategies, investors choose bonds with maturities of 5 years or more. You can also diversify your portfolio and make it more balanced by including different assets and securities. Before you explore the advantages of these strategies, learn how to build an investment portfolio.
