Riskless and Risky investments?
What is the difference between “Riskless” and “Risky” kinds of investments?
Two kinds of investments are often called “risk free.”
First is any investment guaranteed by the United States Government. Those include:
Savings accounts insured by the FDIC or NCUA
Second are certain arbitrage spreads.
Reverse Conversions, a.k.a. Reversals,
Jelly roll spreads.
None of these are totally free of risk, but they are as close as you can get so the are classified as risk free.
Risky investments include
Stocks or bonds of companies that are in financial difficulty, particularly companies that are bankrupt,
Unhedged leveraged instruments such as futures or options,
Unregulated investments, such as hedge funds, and
Most investments are not considered either risk-free or risky.
The total of two investments????
The total of 2 investments is $25,000. One amount is invested at 7% and the other amount is invested at 9%. The annual interest from the 7% investment is $420 more than from the 9%. How much is invested at each rate?
Principal = p
Rate = 0.07
Interest = i = 0.07p
Principal = 25000 – p
Rate = 0.09
Interest = i + 420 = 0.07p + 420 = 0.09(25000 – p)
—> 0.07p + 420 = 0.09(25000 – p)
—> 0.07p + 420 = 2250 – 0.09p
—> 0.16p = 1830
—> p = 11437.50
Principal = p = 11437.50
Principal = 25000 – p = 25000 – 11437.50 = 13562.50
Investment A (9%) = $11,437.50
Investment B (7%) = $13,562.50

what is foreign investment?
I am studying for my history exam nd i need to know what foreign investment is, and is it related to the great depression? please help!!!
Foreign investment is an investment (purchase of capital stock) in a company in other than the acquirer’s domestic market or home country, mainly overseas. I don’t think there is a link between foreign investments and the great depression. It is true that the great depression was intensified by the lack of foreign trade, but not foreign investments, which naturally also dropped drastically in the early 1930′s. Here see the wiki definitions of these two terms:
What do investment bankers do?
Hi. i am intrested in investment banking. i just want to know what you do. why is it such a pressuring job? Also, how much money do you earn. i know some earn millions but what about the average, normal bankers. Thank you
Investment banking is a fairly broad term that can mean several things. Investment bankers assist and do much of the work in helping companies in having their stock be issued to trade publicly. They will also assist companies in merging with or acquiring other companies. They also often make markets in the stocks of the companies they have previously assisted.
Investment banking can be very lucrative. Junior positions ma make just over $100,000, while the big senior investment banker can make into the millions, including huge bonuses.
