Finance is important, because a business needs to forecast where the business is heading. It needs to know if it is making any profitability, what is to be achieved, what are the costs, the risks, and how to acquire the financial needs. Similarly investment is also important to us, because a dollar today may not be worth a dollar in future. Some of the reasons given below have prompted me to choose this topic for the paper.
The following is the tentative outline that I propose for the issue paper. The tentative outline will briefly discuss about the significance of investment, the type of investments available, and the conclude with the recommendation of investment prospects.
A. Government Securities
