Prudence and a bit of luck can help investments grow quickly. There are a
variety of investment opportunities available, and every day new ones
keep popping up. There are certain basic principles which one can adhere
to while making an investment decision. It doesn't matter whether the
investment is big or small; one must get complete information about the
area where one wants to invest.

Investments serve different purposes for different persons in different
circumstances. For some, it provides security for the future, while for
others it is a financial instrument to earn good returns in short term.
Generally, people invest in mutual funds, stocks, government and other
securities, real estate and several other assets. A good investment
portfolio has a mix of highly liquid and less liquid assets. It is also a
mix of short-term and long-term investments.

There are companies and professionals which can advise you in terms of
making investment decisions. There are also companies which are ready to
make investments on your behalf. Some of them ensure a minimum rate of
returns, while others do not. Before making an investment in any such
company, be sure about its credentials.

If one doesn't want to hire a company one can make investments
individually also. But if you are a new investor avoid putting all your
eggs in one basket. Make diversified investments instead.

After some time, when you start getting the returns, you would be able to
decide about the kind of investment portfolio you will be comfortable
with. If you are looking for long-term investments, it is always better
to buy in a bear market, and sell in a bull market. Short-term
securities or equity investments in the secondary market are more suited
for short-term investments.
