The issue of securities is an indispensable tool for attracting capital, and successfully placed capital, in turn, serves as a guarantee of preserving and multiplying the funds of investors. On the other hand, the income received in the stock market is directly related to the risk: the higher the income, the greater the risk. Here investors face the eternal problems of the stock market: risk management and the resulting problems of diversification and drawing up an investment portfolio that minimizes the risk at a given level of profitability.
