Is high income from interest good?
Where does the dividend go to?
Should I keep funds in reserve or should I throw it all at profitable corporations?
Thanks in advance ~Azy

"Is high income from interest good?"
If you're talking about issuing loans (Finance > Loans), the interest you receive is pathetic. However, it is a good way of utilising excess cash, particularly if you're aiming for a higher game level and need to store a few trillion.
Private Investments don't really earn interest, but get a profit from the increase in value of share holdings. High interest income is therefore a good thing.
"Where does the dividend go to?"
It gets reinvested. All the money in Private Investments is contributed by citizens. You cannot get it out of the Investment Fund. However, I think the IF makes contributions to healthcare and education which is why those lines on your financial statement show both an income and expense. If your IF is doing well, the incomes go up.
"Should I keep funds in reserve or should I throw it all at profitable corporations?"
Depends whether you want to earn money from dividends (invest in profitable corps, can be expensive), or increases in share value*. I'm not sure if there is much point in holding funds in reserve.
* REMEMBER, your investments can go down as well as up.

How do I add money to the investment fund?
