Compare and contrast the investment decisions that you might make as an individual investment versus a corporate investment. Include both the accounting investment aspect and the financial investment aspect (they are different aspects because they both have different goals).

Hola!

A corporate investment as the act of putting money, effort, time, etc. into something to make a profit or get an advantage. Every corporate investment consists of four elements. First of all, a corporate investment is a contribution of money or assets. Secondly, there is a certain time period in which an investment is installed. Thirdly, investments have an element of risk. Lastly, corporate investments contribute to the economic development of the host, the host being the company initiating the investment.

Similarly, an individual investment occurs on a smaller scale. It involves a non-professional investor who buys and sells securities, mutual funds or exchange traded funds through traditional or online brokerage firms or savings accounts. Of course, if you're investing on behalf of a company, there are more risks involved because a bad investment would affect many more constituents (i.e. employees who depend on their job) than if you're investing from your personal savings.

Many people make personal investments because stocks have potential for higher returns compared with other types of investments over the long term. Some stocks even pay dividends, which can ensure a passive source of income in case share prices drop. And with that said, there is no guaranteed return, as stock prices can rise and fall dramatically.
