Investor




A person whose principal concern in the purchase of a security is the minimizing of long-term risk, compared to the speculator who is prepared to accept calculated risk in the hope of making better-than-average profits, or the gambler who is prepared to take even greater risks.

More generally, it refers to people who invest money in investment products.


Additional Comments:

The owner of a financial asset; one who is looking to earn money in the stock market through a “buy-and-hold” strategy. Most earnings are either long-term capital gains, dividends, or interest.
