Why  not  INVEST  in  :

Profit  Making  - BUSINESSES  ?

INVEST  in a Profit Making BUSINESS

There  are  many  Business  Opportunities  available  in  the  Marketplace  for  Investors.

As  a  Potential  Business  Investor  you  will  be  looking  for  the  following  :
1.    Returns
Investing in any Business Opportunity in Southern Africa one would expect better returns in comparison with the risk involved. Each Potential Investor has his own expectation of the returns he wants from his Investments.  When dealing with one of our Brokers be sure that you give the Broker a good indication of the Return on Investment ( ROI ) that you expect.
2.    Involvement
The fact that you are an Investor and not a Business Owner also implies that you do not want to get involved with the day to day running of the Business.  Normally there would be Two types of Opportunities :
Firstly, you can find yourself to be 100% Owner of the Business while appointing a Manager to operate the Business for you.
Secondly, you might be a Shareholder in the Company that owns the Business with the other Shareholders being actively involved  in the running of the Business.
You should ask your Next Level - BUSINESS BROKER about the Many Opportunities available in the latter scenario.
 3.     Risk
Most Investments will carry some form of risk. The one major difference between investing in a Business versus other Investments such as Bank Deposits or Unit Trusts is that  the risk is directly under your control.  As an example, you do not have a lot of input should  your Bank decide to lower their Interest Rates on your Investment. On the other hand, if you are not satisfied with the returns from your Business, you are able to immediately  “ step in ”  and make the necessary changes.

4.     Partners
When investing in a Business Opportunity one should look at your Manager or Co-shareholders as your Partners. These are the individuals that will manage your Business Investment in order to achieve the expected returns.  If one uses the word “ Partners ”, it will always be with the word  “ trust ”.  We can advise that your choice of Partners is even more important than your choice of Investment.  For a good Partner/ Manager/ Co-shareholder will be able to turn around a poor Investment, whilst a poor Partner/ Manager/ Co-shareholder will only cost you tears and stress, even if you have invested in a solid Opportunity.
5.     Business  Type
There might be many Opportunities available but as a clever Investor you will rather invest in a Business that you understand and have experience in.  It is important to be able to apply your knowledge if the Business is not delivering on your expected returns.
6.     Location
A Business closer to home is easier to “ check-up ” on than a Business located a far distance away.
7.     Money
The mere fact that you are an Investor means that you do not need to borrow funds in order to invest, but that you have ready cash / capital available to invest.  Make sure that your money is available for the perfect Opportunity that can come along any day.
8.     Timing
We all know that : " Time  is  Money  and  Money  is  Time. "   We have seen many Investors pick up excellent Opportunities because of  the mere fact that they were ready and able to step into a deal quickly.  As an Investor one should always be prepared to conclude a good Business Transaction without delay, at least within a week or two.
9.     Finally  –  Ask  your  Broker / Agent
There are many Opportunities available in the Marketplace.  However, not all of these are advertised and we invite you to interact and discuss same with your  Next Level -  BUSINESS BROKER.  It is a good idea to ask your Broker to include you in his/her Mailing List and keep you informed of any New Business Opportunities, as and when they become available.
