How do you guys decide where to invest money? I just bought a 2 bedroom apartment that I’m confident will bring long term growth. I plan on buying another apartment for rental purposes in the next few months. But I want to start investing in the market in a smart way that will lead to greater financial stability. Does anyone have any tips / books they use? I can’t invest directly so I would need to hire an investment manager - but I feel like i don’t even know where to start.
Friday thoughts on Strengths vs weaknesses: I have been told that I am solid in quant, but need development on the creative side of things - brainstorming, strategic frameworks, maybe even writing.
