Our Investment Packages:

Low Risk

Invest in treasury notes and bonds, government savings bonds, and 401(k)s.  These all have little to no risk in how much money you can lose, but each of them tends to take a long time to gain a good amount of money. Most of these are characterized by having a low risk-low reward standing.

Medium Risk

Corporate bonds, municipal bonds, and mutual funds fill this package.  These can all have fairly good turnouts over not too long of a time, but it is a step riskier than the low risk package.

High Risk

Junk bonds and treasury bills are very risky, but have a great reward if they end up working.  This is the way to either get rich quick or become bankrupt trying.
