Picking the Right Asset Type
Knowing what an asset is, and knowing which is the right type to invest in, are two different things. The investment world is flooded with choices. This can be both an advantage and disadvantage for the investor. This week covers how to decide which type of asset class is best for you. It has been said that "If you don’t know who you are, the market is an expensive place to find out" - a truth which remains to this day. We will examine all contributing factors which will help choose the asset that is right for you; such as your risk profile, investment goals and your available capital.
The Investor as an Individual
Now we explain to our students exactly what stands between you and the market - the middle man. In order to access the market, you will need a broker. We will talk about the various attributes brokers can have, what is best for you and what strongly conflicts with your interest. With this newfound knowledge and understanding you will be able to select a broker that has as few as possible conflicts of interest with you. We will also look at the common types of fees and charges for different online brokers.
Listening to What the Market is Saying
Unfortunately, there is no crystal ball which can tell investors what will happen in the market tomorrow, or the next day. Luckily, there are ways to understand what is happening in the market right now. Knowing how to decipher what is currently going on in the market is indispensable for an investor. This week covers how to read the market and how to use this to your advantage during the decision making process. We will examine how to gauge which trajectory an investment might be heading in. We will also look at the decisions other players in the market might make, and their subsequent impact.
Choosing the Right Investment Strategy
Like all financial speculation, investment is defined by the trade-off between risk vs. reward. However, when we’re investing we’re also confronted with the choice of how long we’re willing to wait in order to gain that return. For some a longer wait is more attractive, for others it’s about the short term gains and for the remainder it may be alluring to blend our portfolio with both short and long term returns. We will explore all of these methods so that you can make the best portfolio & selection possible.
Managing Risk & Maximising Rewards
Losses will occur in investing. As exciting as investing can be, it can also be nerve racking for those unprepared for drawdown. Bigger risks can equate to bigger rewards, however, some investors miss out on profitable gains because they simply cannot stomach the risk. Without risk there simply is no return. They are part and parcel of the same essence; they are inextricably linked to one another. We will explore the various methods one can employ which allow us to maximise returns whilst minimising risk. We will cover the practical side of analysing an investment to see if the risk outweighs the rewards, or vice versa. We will also examine how to manage fees and other expenses.
Developing Your Risk Aversion
We will need to help you understand what the psychological pitfalls are of those whom have lost and of those whom have succeeded, if we are to learn from the best. This week is exclusively focussed on those emotions, old ideas and natural habits we develop which only work against us when investing. Learning to be objective, even about your hard earn savings, is crucial if one is to be successful. This week also covers how an investor can reassess risk, rationalize away some of the anxiety and make steps to become a more fearless investor. We will cover how to build confidence and discipline in your investment decisions. Do you think Warren Buffet frets or celebrates his winnings and losses?
Building Your Portfolio
There is a problem with capital markets which most investors forget to pay close attention to - correlation. Correlation means how similarly any two or three or more markets move in relation to one another. With investors this can be a crippling factor, or one that can be exploited. We will show you exactly how to select a portfolio with the right level of correlation depending on your ROI expectations & goals. This section covers how to pick an asset using a trading platform, and all of the essential considerations which should be involved.
Utilising Professional Risk Management
The key to consistently successful investing is to generate returns whilst simultaneously reducing risk and protecting profits. This is one of the more technical lessons in which we will explore portfolio risk management from a quantitative perspective. Put simply, numbers speak louder than words in this regard, so by learning how to use them to our benefit we begin to understand what it means to balance a portfolio’s overall risk whilst maximising returns.
Trading - What’s it all about?
It can be said that trading is investing in fast forward.In order to understand how to protect your profits and returns in the long term, you will need to understand how order flow from traders and shorter term market participants, is likely to trigger a massive sell off or buying frenzy. We need to understand if such movements are likely to continue or if it’s just noise for us as longer term investors. Trading skills will be acquired by the learner here and we will explore the overall pros and cons of trading and investing, giving you the opportunity to decide if trading is you.
