Investor Company in Indonesia
Starting a business requires an idea that can compete and achieve the goals we want. Determining the line of business that we want to do is also a very crucial role before starting our business, whether we want to run a business in the field of trade or services or both.
There are many choices of types of trading and service businesses that entrepreneurs can do to start their business. But did you know that there are types of businesses that can be an alternative to starting your business, which, especially in Indonesia, there are not many types of companies, namely Investor / Investment companies.
An investor is someone who puts money into something for a certain financial gain. Investors usually carry out technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis to determine the most profitable investment opportunities and they generally prefer to maximize profits and minimize risks. Investors are often referred to as investors.
Investor / investment companies are not only in the form of financial institutions but can also be in the form of legal entities such as Limited Liability Companies (PT). To establish a company of this type, especially in Indonesia, has the same establishment process as companies in general and the type of ownership is not limited to the type of domestic company but also the type of foreign company.
These Investor Companies make investment activities their main business activity, so that they do not directly carry out business activities such as trading or services, but only place investments in other companies and will get from the investment results.
Important points that need to be considered before starting this investor business are:
· Investors can use different financial instruments to get a rate of return to achieve financial goals and objectives.
· Investment securities include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, derivatives, commodities and real estate.
· Investors can be distinguished from traders in that the financier takes a long-term strategic position in the company or project.
· Investors build portfolios either with an active orientation that tries to outperform the benchmark index or a passive strategy that tries to track the index.
· Investors are also likely to be oriented towards growth or value strategies.
