What makes a great investor?



Investment requires skill and an eye for good opportunities


We often stumble upon people that are considered to be proficient investors, who managed to make huge amounts of money by making the right moves or seeing the opportunities that others could not.This is the case with such great minds as Warren Buffet or Peter Lynch, who refine their techniques to achieve repeated success over time.


So what makes a great investor? We will take a look at some characteristics of how you are able to profit in different types of investments. Needless to say that each investments has its own characteristics, but there are some general rules for all of them, nonetheless:


Make a very clear plan: you should not go any further in any aspect of life without some strategy. That is why we have built a whole methodology around this idea, called Polestar. Once you define where you are and where you want to be, you will take all necessary actions to get there.


Don’t rush: part of the process is to be patient. Depending on the investment you have chosen, it can be somewhat volatile, so you need to be capable of weathering the ups and downs. What is important, though, is that you are mindful of the next step to make sure you are always on the right path.


Learn as much as you can: there’s a saying in Brazil that “knowledge never weighs on one’s shoulder”. The more you learn about investment, the better you will get at it and will be able to take risks with more confidence because you actually know what is going on in the market.
