Investments help your money grow but, unlike savings, there can be risk involved; the money you put in is not guaranteed to grow or stay the same. 

Investing means putting your money to work for you but, when you invest, you take the chance that your money can increase as well as decrease.   This is not gambling, though.  True investing means doing a serious analysis of the pros and cons of a particular investment and determining if you can reasonably expect to make a profit.  By investing your money you run a risk, but you also have a higher potential of earning a profit than in regular savings.  Generally, the higher the risk, the higher the expected rate of return.  Investing wisely is one of the keys to building wealth.
