High Yield Investment Programs (part one)

The phrase High Yield Investment Programs (HYIPs) can refer to two contrasting investment opportunities.

Part 1

The first are legal investment funds or unit trusts - here the money is managed by a team of professionals, who are investment experts. These fund managers try to maximize investors potential gains as quickly as possible, by rapid buying and selling of shares or stock, and investing in emerging markets. This of course is not without its risks.

The minimum deposits in these 'offline' companies is normally a couple of thousand dollars. It is not uncommon for gains to be around the 10-15% mark a year, however be warned - as the potential rewards are high, so are the risks - you can loose as well as win.
