Investment strategy: Ivan Lozovoy's advice
Strategy. Business Model. Systems
Before you start investing, you must understand what you are doing it for — to get rich, save for retirement, or other reasons. Ivan Lozovy, a Ukrainian public activist, politician, business consultant, and investor with 15 years of experience, is convinced of this. The specialist shared his investment approaches with MBAF-14 participants during a lecture on April 7.

1. Look for unique opportunities

For example, Ivan Lozovy mentioned the events of spring 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic was spreading worldwide. Anticipating changes in people's lives, including the growth of online shopping, he invested in shares of the South American company MercadoLibre, which specializes in e-commerce.

2. To be interested not only in the company but also in the entire field in which it works

Although Ivan Lozovy prefers investing in companies from different areas, he emphasizes that even in the case of specialization in one place, it is essential to be interested in the activities of not only the company that caught your attention but also the entire sector.

3. Pay attention not to indicators but to company management

"I am more interested in how the management works than the company's current performance. After all, his task is precisely to change these indicators," the expert explains his opinion.

4. Review your strategy

Investment activity should begin with the creation of a system. At the same time, it should not be permanent. It should be constantly reviewed.

5. Rely primarily on yourself

Ivan Lozovy is convinced that even if you cooperate with companies that manage your investments, you should still not lose your vigilance. Instead, stay in the process. You can listen to the advice, but in any case, you make the decision yourself.

In addition, the specialist reflected on the topic of the most valuable assets, offering his rating to the attention of the listeners:

  1. antiques (these things exist in a certain amount, which will not increase);
  2. real estate;
  3. precious stones and metals;
  4. startups (in this area, you can both get huge earnings and spend everything);
  5. cryptocurrency (although Ivan Lozovy himself is not ready to invest in it because there is "nothing behind it");
  6. financial instruments (for example, bonds or company shares).
