Investment, in a financial sense, is something that one puts money into in hopes of receiving a profit or gain. In an economic sense, an investment is something purchased that is not a consumer good, but is used for production of other goods and services. A type of financial investment is the purchase of a security, such as a stock or bond. Economic investments can be physical, such as machinery for a factory, or intangible, such as investing in job training to create human capital.

An investment is an object, mechanism, or system which is purchased with money or into which money is placed with the goal or receiving something greater in return.
