Person who puts in motion the conversion of money into assets, in hopes of income and capital appreciation. [1] Puts money in-vest. The term investment implies that a business or investment risk can be analyzed and measured, and its distinction from Speculation is one of degree of risk.

The buying and selling in search of profit from rise and fall of market value is recorded from 1774. [2]
