Unit trust is a collective investment scheme that pools the savings of a large number of investors. The money collected is invested by the fund manager in different types of stocks, bonds, or other securities in various proportions depending upon the objective of the fund. The income earned through these investments and the capital appreciation realized by the scheme, after deducting the trading costs and expenses of managing and administering the fund are paid out to the unit holders in proportion to the number of units owned by them.

Most of the unit trust funds in Malaysia are open-ended funds (the fund sells as many units as you and other investors want to buy and buys as many units you want to sell). This makes unit trust funds very liquid investments – though the price at which you sell may be less than your purchase price if the value of the fund has dropped.You can make an initial investment with as little as RM1,000 and buy additional units when you have more money or invest a fixed amount on a regular monthly schedule via a bank account. Thus unit trust is the most suitable investment for the common man as it offers an opportunity to invest in a diversified, professionally managed portfolio.

Each Fund has a defined investment objective and strategy.

9. Investing in blue chip stock in Stock Exhange.

Risk: Very high risk
Return : Very high return

If you had invested RM 1000 in Genting in 1987, it would amount to about RM 35000 now.

According to investopedia, stock generally does not have voting rights, but has a higher claim on assets and earnings than the common shares. Also known as "shares" or "equity".

Many investors purchase a particular stock with the intention of making a big profit over a short period of time. However, this action is not investing, but a pure gambling. The reason for this is that you are never guaranteed that you will get the high returns you hope for over such a short period of time.

There may be times in which stocks have put a record on short-term growth, but these occurrences are very rare. On average stocks have returned from 10% to 12%. However, this doesn't mean that all stocks return at these rates.
