A1 Trade Shares Excellent Ideas

Thank you A1 Trade for your support. Your information is excellent.

When it comes to investing, it is important for you to be familiar with the various investment asset classes. When you understand the pros and cons of each asset class, you would be able to make more informed investment decisions that suit your wealth management goals. We shall briefly discuss some of the common asset classes.


Shares
A share represents part ownership in a publicly listed company. The share price growth and dividends income are highly dependent on the company’s performance. The pros of share investment include liquidity and accessibility. While shares can yield high returns, share prices can be volatile and subjected to short-term market conditions.


Fixed Interest
These investments include debentures, government and corporate bonds. The return is generally in the form of regular interest payments over the life of the investment with the capital amount repaid when the investment matures. Although they usually offer lower potential returns, they have potentially lower risk than shares. The attractiveness of the return depends on the interest rate movements.


Cash
Cash include bank accounts, bank deposits and similar securities which have a short investment time horizon. They provide stable and low-risk income in the form of regular interest payments. They are highly liquid and have low capital risk. However, they have one of the lowest potential returns of all asset classes, particularly in a low interest rate environment.


Property
This asset class includes direct investment in physical property as well as investments in listed real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other property securities. The value of property can increase substantially over the medium-to-long term, generating higher returns than cash or fixed interest. This illiquid investment usually involved high capital outlay and on-going costs.


Whatever your wealth management goals are, it is important not to put all your eggs into one basket.

4 tips for investing in offshore funds

Thank you Primus Trade for the great information on investing.


4 tips for investing in offshore funds

Prepare an investment policy statement (IPS)
A respectable wealthmanager should prepare an IPS document for their client, which is vital in order for the investor to make an informed investment decision. The investment policy statement should outline your investment objectives and risk tolerance, among other things. It should state your motives for investing in the offshore funds and that tax minimization or deferral is not one of the main factors behind your decision to invest offshore.
Document discussions
It is important to clarify with your wealthmanager what your objectives are and, if reducing taxes is not one of the primary reasons for investing offshore, explain that to your wealth manager.
Choose local if you can
If there’s an investment fund in your region that is equivalent in all important respects to the offshore fund you’re considering, you may want to choose the local investment instead in order to avoid any questions from the applicable tax authorities. It’s more than likely, that you may have difficulty finding an equivalent localized fund if the investment adopts an alternative strategy (something esoteric, and not simply a fund that purchases stocks on a long-only basis). If there is no localized equivalent investment fund that you’re aware of, be sure to document that fact.
Watch your cost amount
In general, if the value of your offshore investment is less than $100,000 USD in aggregate, you won’t have to report these assets to your tax authority. It is likely that your local tax authorities will raise this threshold, so it is advised that you keep abreast of all relevant tax laws and any changes to them pertaining to offshore investment.

Topeka, KS  – Demonstrating their ongoing commitment to drag racing and the motorsports industry, Aeromotive Fuel Systems and Waterman Racing Components have agreed to increase their marketing partnership with the Fastest Drag Strip in the World, Heartland Park Topeka, for the 2017 racing season.

“It’s refreshing to be a partner with Heartland Park Topeka and create an positive and expanding environment for brand exposure and growth with a dedicated team of executives that truly understands motorsports marketing,” says Steve Matusek, President of Aeromotive Inc. “We are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Chris Payne, Scott Gardner, Ron and Darla Conner and the entire HPT team. We’re especially excited to be a part of bringing the NHRA’s J&S Services Pro Mod racing back to Aeromotive’s home track during the Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals event in May.”

In a joint announcement back in December, the NHRA confirmed that its Pro Mod Series will grow from 10 to 12 races in 2017, including the race at Heartland Park Topeka. Both Aeromotive and Waterman Racing Components are actively involved in the NHRA series.

“We are very pleased with Aeromotive’s decision to increase their level of sponsorship and marketing for the 2017 race season,” says Scott Gardner, president and general manager of Heartland Park Topeka. “This is a great partnership made even better because of Aeromoitve’s Lenexa, Kansas location and the fact that so many in the company are directly involved with professional and grass-roots level racing. Both Aeromotive and Waterman’s products and brand recognition represent a great partnership for racers and fans here at the track.”

Expanded “Racer Appreciation Party”

As part of the renewed partnership, Aeromotive will once again host and expand the Racer Appreciation Party for all racers and their crews during the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Double Divisional event, July 27-30. In 2016, more than 600 race teams and their crews participated in the after-racing event.
