Almost all people who make money invest in some kind of security. For the aggressive risk-taker, there are equities and junk bonds; for the risk-averse conservative investor, there is gold or bank deposits.
On the Business Insider Web site, I found this cool infographic on investment fads from Joshua Brown, an investment advisor.
Please note that the mentioned investment themes and fads relate more to the Western markets, and less to Indian investors. Nevertheless, the infographic sheds light on the investment ideas that have caught the imagination of millions of investors and how they have moved and changed over the last few decades.
Please post your reaction to this post; it gives me an idea of what is popular and what is not!
