Investor

The owner of an asset.

Investor

One who places capital into a project or business with the intent of making a profit from the initial placing of capital. An investor may be one who extends a loan or line of credit, which entitles one to repayment with interest, or he may buy an ownership stake in a business with the hope that the business will become profitable. Investing may also involve buying a particular asset with the intent to resell it later for a higher price. Many types of investing exist and each is subject to greater or lesser regulation in the jurisdiction in which it takes place. Legally, investors can only exist in places where individual property rights exist and are protected. Good investors require a combination of astuteness, knowledge of the market, and timing.
