List of Investment Companies in London

In finance and economics investment has two different denotations. Finance investment means that you have invested money into something with the anticipation of gain along with a high degree of security for the principal amount and also of the return, within the given period.

However, when you invest your money into something without having much knowledge about it, without having any security of principal amount and return it is called speculation or gambling. Here appears the role of the investment companies.

An investment company is considered as a company that made investments on behalf of it’s shareholders into diverse securities of other companies and in return profits and losses are shared between these investors. These investment companies are extremely beneficial for such investors that either don’t know how to or where to invest or don’t have much time to keep a proper track of their investments.
