Announcing the Investor Profile!

In our live trading room this morning, Shawn announced the launch of Apiary’s newest product: the Investor Profile!

The Investor Profile is a personality assessment developed by the Apiary Fund to help investors to recognize their natural internal characteristics that may prove to be beneficial or detrimental to their success. Your success as an investor has as much to do with your personality as it does your level of expertise. Was Gordon Gekko successful due only to his level of knowledge, or do you suppose he used his aggressive personality to complement his knowledge of the financial markets? It’s important to recognize characteristics inherent to your personality and develop a complementary trading style.

We know the Investor Profile will be a valuable tool for our traders. It will help yourecognize your basic desires and motivations that have significant effects on your trading. You’ll gain insight into your natural reaction to pressure—a factor which alone can dramatically alter your normal behavior. The Investor Profile will help articulate the unique challenges that come with your personality type, and it will provide suggestions to help increase performance.

The Investor Profile is open to all Apiary Fund associates, so if you haven’t seen it yet, go here to check it out!

If you’re not currently an associate with the Apiary Fund, but would like to know more, feel free to give us a call at 1-801-701-1650, email us, or visit our orientation webinar!

    This hit me right on the nose. Aggressive/Methodical. Great insights as to why I do some of the things I do.

    I got Analytical-Methodical. I originally thought that I would be more Methodical than anything else, because I typically remain totally emotionally detached and just go with the system no matter what. Others describe me as analytical, though. I even took it again and got the same!

    Go figure, I am Analytical-Aggressive. This explains why I am always torn between going in with a system or going all in with no system. I must admit, sometimes Mr. Hyde takes over and I find that rogue inner self smiling with sheer enthusiasm! :)
