An investor is an individual or corporate unit that invests in any class of investments on purpose to earn some return from invested capital. There may be more criteria to distinguish very small investments (would be not fair to call an investor a person that has only one share of 2$ value) and distinguish investors from speculators, while speculating is more close to gambling than investing.


Mostly investors invest in traditional investments as stocks and bonds (directly or not). Active investors are those, who always follow market news, make researches on the companies, and do more than few trades in a year. While passive investors may also invest a large amounts of money but they are able to invest only in funds (mutual or ETFs) and pay very little attention to the process depending on investments asset classes.
