I haven’t been able to cool down my passion for investments. I always thought of making a livelihood dealing with securities and real estate. My recent MBA has given me the framework and the experience required to be a successful investor. After dredging through multiple alternatives, I finally decided to start my own private investment firm to manage family investments in real estate, securities and other potential lucrative deals. I will soon come up with a name for the firm – one that resonates with my investment objective – to eke out opportunities that provide tremendous returns. For the near term, the firm will set returns that beat S & P return. Apart from securities, the firm will look out for real estate investments, both in commercial and multi-family units. I know consistently beating market returns is not easy, but not impossible. The investment style must be proven, can survive and provide positive returns even during severe market downturns. Predicting and beating markets is not an easy game, but given the determination and focus, employing right strategies supported by extensive research is an achievable goal. Wall street firms with their army of researchers and traders, live and breathe in these markets every day, but with open markets everyone has the opportunity to make their mark. It is the intelligence, the research and the swift response to events that makes the difference. It’s a new start and I hope the success of the firm will be a reflection of my performance in achieving these investment goals.
