12 Steps to Becoming a Great Investor

Welcome to Quest Capital & Risk Management’s “12 Steps to Becoming a Great Investor” series.

Are you ready to become a better investor – to enhance your understanding of the most important principles that drive the creation of wealth – without it hurting a bit? That’s what “12 Steps to Becoming a Great Investor” is all about.

Each post will take only a minute or two of your time to explore one essential concept about investing, with an emphasis on ensuring that evidence, not emotion, guides your way. Before you know it, we’ll have introduced you to a dozen or so solid principles, based on more than a half-century of peer-reviewed inquiry into how capital markets efficiently and effectively deliver long-term wealth to patient investors.

Don’t worry, unless you specifically ask us about it, we’ll skip the Greek calculations and multi-factor modeling. Instead, we’ll translate each insight into its meaningful essence: the “What’s in it for me?” what you need to know, so you can apply the science & discipline of investing into your own portfolio.

You see, being a better investor doesn’t mean you must have an advanced degree in financial economics, or that you have to be smarter, faster or luckier than the rest of the market. It means:

• Knowing and heeding the insights available from those who do have advanced degrees in financial economics
• Structuring your portfolio so that you’re playing with rather than against the market and its expected returns
• Avoiding your own most dangerous behaviors – ingrained through eons of evolution – that tempt you to make the worst financial decisions at all the wrong times

Are you ready to become a better investor on these terms? Join us for our next “12 Steps to Becoming a Great Investor” – You, the Market and the Prices You Pay.
