Treating Investing As A Business
Work smarter, not harder.
Please remember the story of "The Man who was too lazy to fail." He always did everything smarter than the rest so as to save work!
Business Model - Equity Warehouse
Equities are Inventory to be Managed, just like auto parts or plumbing supplies. What is the Warehouse function?
1) maintain inventory to satisfy demand at a profit.
2) maintain liquidity to build inventory at fair prices.
Business Plan - Automatic Investment Management
“If you were only only willing to risk $10,000 when prices were low, why would you be willing to risk twice that after prices have doubled?"
Risk Tolerance -
-Do you fully understand the relationship between Risk and Reward?
-Do you fully grasp the concept of Risk Management?
-Knowing that the Marketplace is run by the “Practical Joke Department”, can you accept the risk of being involved in something that's not completely under your control?
-Have you studied how Capital Markets work?
-Do you understand Market Psychology?
-Do you understand the basics of small business accounting?
-Can you read and understand financial journals, annual reports and prospectus'?
Time Commitment -
-Knowing your current work and family obligations, do you have time to properly attend to an active portfolio of equities?
-Can you afford a minimum of five minutes per week, per “inventory item” for review and managment?
Financial and Emotional Commitment -
-Have you placed your personal finances in good order? Funds commited to the marketplace must be earmarked so.
-Under “Worst Case” conditions, can you stand the thought of severe loss or “dead money?”
-Have you and your family (or parteners) discussed how failure AND success might affect your lives?
Ability to Make Decisions -
-Don't ignore decision making ability. You will have to make decisions and act upon them on a regular basis. The business model you have chosen does much of the work for you, but YOU still have to place the orders to buy or sell
portions of your inventory. If market conditions are going to affect you in a way as to paralyse your actions with indecision, this may not be the right business for you.
-Success and failure ride on your shoulders. AIM is contrary to “Groupthink” and “Herd Mentality.” Will you be able to see the reality of the situation and act when needed?
-Can you live with yourself knowing that at times you will make mistakes? Can you learn from your mistakes or just re-live them? In this business mistakes have to be “Learning Experiences” no matter how painful. Can you avoid
self-recriminations and "Get over it?"
AIM CAN HELP YOU WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE!
