  • Understand Where You are Investing–  Investing and business have a strong relationship between each other.  Just like it is good to have a sound knowledge of the industry in which you will be doing your business, similarly, you need to understand where it will be the best to invest.  It makes no sense to start with a business or purchase a product of investment just relying on the suggestions of a friend or a financial advisor.  There is another type of people who invest in certain products just because they have seen other people succeeding by investing in those products.  Understanding has a huge importance in every aspect of life, and investment is no exception.  Whether it is real estate or stock, you should not make an investment blindly.  It is often seen that the reason why investors end up panicking is inadequate understanding.  A sound understanding will enable you to make profit, reduce your loss and help you in risk management.
  • Be Passionate about the Thing in Which You Invest–  You need to be passionate about making an investment in order to make the most from it.  You must not invest in something about which you do not have that much of a passion.
  • Invest in that Thing over which You Have Control–  If you want to be successful as an investor you got to have control over your investment.  If you lose control, then it will definitely have adverse effect on your risk management.  Having absolute control will help you to make sure that you can reduce your expenses, control the flow of cash, adjust the liquidity ratio or increase your sales.
  • Show a Lot of Patience–  You must remember that there is a right time for everything. There are good and bad times both in case of business as well as investing.  Therefore, before making an investment, you must be absolutely sure whether you are willing to stick with it throughout.

Mentioned above are five key factors that you need to keep in mind before making an investment.  It is never advisable to just latch on to an opportunity for investment without considering its pros and cons.

Interesting article – I think that you are correct, especially that you need to be knowledgeable in what you invest. Don’t just invest because “everyone else is doing it”, but make sure that you understand the risks and benefits involved – very true!

Arnelariate, I am a trader and invest in Forex and Gold due to this I can better understand your point shared here. Even “Understand Where You are Investing” is the most important point for both new and experienced investors. If you share a detailed post about “Risk and Money management” then it may be more useful for us.
