An investment that meets a person's or institution's goals. Fit investments vary from investor to investor and can even change for the same investor over time. For example, a person may have the goal to extract a high return from her investments when she is young in order to finance a certain lifestyle; fit investments for this person are likely to include high risk securities and ventures. Over time, however, this person may be concerned about protecting savings for retirement. As a result, fit investments may shift to primarily bonds and blue-chip stocks.
