The basic idea behind investing is to put your money into
something that will grow in value. This can include a business, a
retirement account, stocks, bonds and money market accounts. Investing is
one way to grow your money. You don't need a lot of money to start
investing, but you do need to know that investing involves a certain
amount of risk (chance of losing your money) and that your money is not
guaranteed to grow (your return).
