WHAT DUE DILIGENCE SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN MAKING AN INVESTMENT?

WHAT DUE DILIGENCE SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN MAKING AN INVESTMENT?

At Hunter Jones, we pride ourselves on conducting thorough due diligence for each and every investment product on behalf of our clients, ensuring we only introduce opportunities with the strong potential for ROI. 


However, for those new to investment, there may be a level of concern as to what makes a good investment opportunity or, indeed, what due diligence should be personally undertaken before parting with one’s hard-earned cash.


Understand the value of the investment


Taking the time to understand how well a particular industry sector is performing, and the wealth of investment opportunities available is a good indicator as to the value of a potential investment. 


For example, the property development sector is not only rife with investment opportunities at a commercial level, but market reports have consistently revealed a marked increase in the demand for housing, confirming a growth in rental property and subsequent property developments. 


Observe the numbers thoroughly


When beginning to look at the numbers, be clear on your potential ROI. Understanding forecast revenue, profit margins and return on equity is essential in any equity or corporate bond investment.


Ultimately, understanding your potential ROI and the timeframe in which you will receive your return will go a long way to projecting whether the investment is viable and worth your time.


Know when to harvest


Investing is a numbers game and so even as you head into a new investment, keep an eye on when you might want to get out. 


It can certainly be a fickle marketplace – an investment that may be doing well one year can fall apart another – and so the correct due diligence will help you understand when it will be best to withdraw cash and utilise it for alternative opportunities.
