    you basically have to think of these investments in terms of the risk of losing your investment.
    If you think of your personal life, and say you had £1000 the most risky would be perhaps to place it on the horses you may get a good return but the risk of you losing that £1000 is really high

    Generally the lower the return from the money and the ones with the guarantee to get your investment back are the least risky

    Your book should explain the kind of returns you can expect from each type of investment
    So think about the most risky and that goes at the top
