Why You Need to Diversify – The Oxford Club

According to the Oxford Club, one of the single most important activities that an investor needs to do is diversify their portfolio. Considering that the Oxford club is the largest investor club in the world, those looking to invest smarter may want to take heed of their advice. Serving members of 130 countries, the Oxford Club provides relevant information to their members to help them make good investments and increase their wealth.

 

To The Oxford Club diversify means a couple of different things. One, investors should diversify by having multiple types of investments that they put their money into throughout the year. For instance, a commodities trader may not want to put all of his eggs in one basket. They may also want to put some funds in other types of investments, like stocks and bonds. While one investment type is lacking, the other could essentially pick up the financial slack. This is why it’s important to have different types of investments considering you never know when one industry may plummet.

 

Another way to diversify is by having investments of different sizes. A smart investor may have some small investments but also may have some larger investments like maybe a large commercial building. While the large investment may yield more income, it can also possibly yield more loss depending on how risky it is. Which leads to another type of diversity needed by any good investor, a mixture of very risky investments compared to some that are less risky. This keeps your portfolio even and leaves a little more room for error.

 

Another tip that the Oxford Club has is always knowing when it’s time to sell. Be careful not to hold your investments too long to where you actually lose money versus gain money, which is the point of investment. Last, the Oxford Club says to never pay too much for your investments and always cut your costs. One of the best ways to cut costs on your investment is to try to limit the amount of taxes you pay on it throughout the year.

George Soros – A Name We Shouldn’t Know & Why It’s Great We Do

George Soros isn’t the kind of man who would normally be a household name for the majority of American families, most billionaires aren’t. Then again, George Soros isn’t your normal Billionaire. He is the kind of man who never wanted fame, never courted controversy and certainly never wanted to be anything that even closely resembled a “political figure”. He is just a man who used his skills and talents to amass a sizable fortune, truly the last of the self-made billionaires, and wanted to use the blessings that he had been given to help others, indeed the entire world, to have a better life. On the way, he made a name for himself in many ways in the financial sector, the philanthropic world, and of course the political arena.

Soros started out life in humble ways. He was born in Hungary to Jewish parents who changed their name from Schwartz to Soros in order to escape the persecution of the Jews by the Nazis. When the country turned to communism, he was able to flee and emigrated to London where he started what would become a long and prosperous career in the world of finance. He found that he had a natural head for numbers and studied economics. George Soros earned his degree and moved to New York City in 1956, quickly rising to the top of the financial world and being the man to talk to if you wanted the best insights on how to make your money grow quickly and effectively. He began with Wall Street brokerage firm F.M. Mayer and in 1973 he started his own hedge fund, which he guided into one of the fasted growing in history. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.

The book was a life changer for Soros, who took from it the lesson that no ideology owns the essential and core principle of truth, and that societies of all kinds and from all parts of the world can flourish and grow only when they are allowed to operate freely and openly, and when they maintain respect for the individual inalienable rights of those who make up said societies. This was a philosophy that would reach deep into the heart of Soros and guide the majority of his activities for the rest of his life.

He is a man who tries hard to shy away from the limelight and cares not for controversy, but his belief systems often put him at odds with the mainstream traditionalist foundations of society in controversial manners. When that happens, he stands firm and take heed of a line from Max Ehrmanns “desiderata” and proceeds to “as far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.” And to “speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others.”

He is active in politics, often considered a progressive, and while he does not officially identify with any particular party, he is often associated with the American Democratic Party, the platform and candidates of which he frequently supports. He is also active in many international countries funding support and enrichment programs ranging from Africa, to Europe, to Asia and Oceania. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.

George Soros isn’t the kind of man, who is normally a household name, but perhaps he should be, and perhaps if there were more like him who were, the world would indeed be a much better place.
