Investor is a private person, a group of people, or a company that contributes capital into another entity with the aim to receive a committed sum of investment in a greater amount within a set timeframe outlined in the contractual agreement between the parties.
Investors base their decision-making process on a number of aspects as investing in companies is a rather risky endeavor to be engaged in without taking into consideration possible outcomes. Investment assessment is a first step of investment management.
Company’s business-model, in-depth analysis of the situation on the market, team work, employee-employer relationship, asset and wealth management, and previous experience of founders (founders’ profiles) and managers are crucial for assessment for an investment to be successful. These are the factors that investment management have to take into the consideration.
Investors should also be aware of different timeframe for investments to bring desirable profit.
