To invest is to allocate money in the expectation of some profit or benefit in the future.

In finance, the benefit from an investment is called a return. The return may consist of a gain or a loss realized from the sale of a property or an investment, unrealized capital appreciation (or depreciation), or investment income such as dividends, interest, rental income etc., or a combination of capital gain and income. The return may also include currency gains or losses due to changes in the foreign currency exchange rates.

Investors generally expect certainly higher returns from riskier investments. When a low risk investment is made, the return is also usually low. Similarly, high risk comes with high returns.

Investors, particularly new ones, are often advised to adopt a particular investment strategy and diversify their portfolio. Diversification has the statistical effect of reducing overall risk.
