We're happy you've found your way to our new investor quiz!
See below the different types of investors tested in the quiz.
Types of Investors:
The Long-term Investor
A long-term investor chooses one or several companies he believes in and then leaves them for a long period of time until the company has reached the investor's idea of the potential.
These investments usually last a year up to several years.
Long-term investors are usually found amongst The Company Loyalist investors as well.
The ”YOLO” Investor
An investor that tends to fall victim to FOMO.
He buys what's trendy and may not have the best risk assessment.
Quick gains are all that matters!
The Active Trader
This person is commonly called a trader rather than an investor. That's because he's trying to time the market by making trades. He buys low and then sells low. These trades can take minutes to hours and days.
The Bargain Investor
A bargain investor does not mind sitting on a chunk of cash in order to be able to jump onto the next bargain on the market. It may be a flash-crash sale or an IPO that will make this investor jump in on the opportunity.
That said, this investor stays calm and waits for the best possible opportunity before entering the market.
The Company Loyalist
You're loyal to one and the same company and most, if not all of your capital goes into this company. It's not unusual that the investor works at the company as well.
However, it can be argued that working at the same company that you have the majority of your money in is not a great decision.
That's because if the company goes bankrupt you'll not only lose your job, you'll lose most of your savings as well.
The Portfolio Tweaker
This investor is very aware of home much capital is located in which industry or investment category. He moves money between accounts to keep the portfolio well-diversified and opted for success.
He's not a trader but an expert at relocating assets.
The Traditional Investor
A traditional investor stays to traditional investment assets, such as stocks and real estate. He's most likely to have ”safer” bigger companies in his portfolio rather than small-cap stocks.
The aim for this investor is to keep a steady growth and beat the index every year.
The Early Adopter
Whatever new industry, the early adopter will have a stake in it. He thrives on new technologies and disruptive ideas. The early adopter seems to have a good understanding of where the world is heading and stays ahead of the curve.
He's not afraid of temporary losses, even though they can be significant sometimes.
As long as the investor is early and has patience, he's opted for good returns.
