FINANCIAL INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Before starting to explain the details of investing is necessary to be clear about the aspect I believe is the most important into every business activity: The Knowledge.

These three steps are the fundament for the construction of a successful Portfolio; the Portfolio is the set of all the titles of an investment. A Portfolio might have different frameworks personalized according to the will and ability of the investor to take risks and cover eventual losses, the framework structure might be of three different kinds: Balanced, Adventurous and Cautious. A Balanced Portfolio is made by low and high risk investment that balance each other, assuming a perfect balance of the low and high risk part of the Portfolio, the almost complete security of return of the low risk part gives the opportunity to invest the other part of the capital into high risk investments without the fear of a complete failure and relative loss of money, keeping the chance of exceeding the margin expectations in case of well results.
