Traits of successful investors:

  1. Investors learn – they know investing

  2. Investors pay attention – they follow their holdings

  3. Investors decide – they plan and are ready move

  4. Investors act – they move when needed

All superior investors share these traits. Some directly manage their portfolio, others use professional advisors. Investors using financial advisors significantly improve their results by learning to think and behave like superior investors.

Anyone can learn to invest well

Anyone can acquire the knowledge needed to invest well. Google will find all the information and data you can possibly need. Additionally there are many thousands of books, services and classes to help you learn.

You can learn the routine of effectively and efficiently checking your holdings and being aware of markets. You can develop the needed decision-making skill and you can learn what, when and how, to take effective action.

Anyone interested can learn the facts and develop the skills needed to produce superior investment results. You can manage your own portfolio or to be counted among the best clients of a professional financial advisor.

By learning, you can avoid the most costly weaknesses for any investor, indecision and procrastination. But, not everyone should manage their own investment portfolio. There are two essential necessities for managing a portfolio.

2 Essentials necessary for managing a portfolio

  1. Time

  2. Mindset

An investor needs both, time and the mindset to manage a portfolio. Should you lack either, for your own protection, use a professional advisor. Procrastinators or people unable to make decisions, should never manage a portfolio. They must leave the heavy lifting to a financial advisor.

If you can, pay attention, make decisions and take prompt action when required, you have the needed psychology and mindset to successfully manage a portfolio. You can do it, if you choose to do it. You can learn.

But if you do not believe that you can do it, you are right! Don’t do it unless you believe in yourself. In that case, use professional help to manage your investment account.

Think like an investor to increase your returns

If you decide to use professional help, you can still dramatically and positively affect your portfolio performance. By learning how to think like an investor, you become a better client. The more you know, the better you will do.
