Alpha's Investment Philosophy
We at ALPHA believes that investment is not the mere calculations of spreadsheets or choosing funds and fund options, it is a way of life, a way of thinking not only about financial instruments but also about life in general. When dealing with investments time is more important than money. Each investment need reasonable time to accumulate and to grow into a meaningful asset. Therefor investment is hugely distinctive to gambling. Most investor confuse the investment philosophy and gambling. In gambling terms it is a zero sum game where the house always wins.
This gambling approach can be easily identified if logic and common sense is applied. For example: If the JSE Allshare Index is promising 21% return over a specific term and another investment which is unregulated, unregistered in most instances, is promising double or three times the normal investment returns above the market, if one is prudent enough to investigate the underlying assets of such an investment and how those returns are going to be generated, you will be able to figure out that the chances of you as the investor receiving the promised investment returns or your money is next to nothing. Therefor we believe at ALPHA that investment depend on a long term relationship between the stakeholders.
