minimum investment(redirected from Minimum Investments)
The least amount of money one may place in a portfolio or fund. Some brokerages, such as boutiques, only accept clients who are willing to put up a large minimum investment. Likewise, most hedge funds exclude small investors by having a minimum investment, usually in the millions of dollars. Examples of investment vehicles with small minimum investments are IRAs and 401(k)s.
