Fixed and variable investment definition

You have to give to get. Here, what you give is the ability to absorb some risk, and what you get is the potential for a higher rate of return.


Fixed and variable investment is an investment with a fixed or stated return, like a coupon on a bond or dividend on a stock, plus a variable component in the form of capital gain or loss. The variable component subjects the investment to principal losses, as well as gains.
