Investing: the initial capital to start with
To invest a capital:
– To commit capital in order to gain a financial return;
– To put capital to use, by purchase or expenditure, in something offering potential profitable returns;
We don’t know you, but for us the journey towards the discovery of the investing art began pretty much in the same way: we were kids, and we all three watched the legendary film “Wall Street” by Oliver Stone in 1987.
It was undoubtedly at that time that the world of finance, markets and stock market began to exert its fascination on us. It was also at that time, however, that a false belief took root in our way of thinking about the possibilities of investing.
As you can see from the definitions taken from various vocabularies, for investing we are talking about using “capitals”, and this term has always had a meaning of magnitude and importance. How much is a capital? How much is it worth?
How much is worth a capital to invest?
It’s a common thought that the term capital is synonymous with “large amount of money”.
It’s a relative and personal amount for each one of us, but almost always in our head takes the form of a value that will be very difficult to obtain and use for any investment purpose.
“I’ll never have a capital to invest,” “Only the rich have the capitals to invest.”
Well, the first step is just to get rid of this false belief.
It is a crucial step, perhaps the most important. The term “capital” must lose any meaning of greatness or importance. It must become much more simply, “the amount of money available that, if lost completely, it would cause no problem at all”.
This is the capital to be invested.
We don’t mean that the money to invest should not be considered important. On the contrary! You’ll have to deal with the money you’ll invest with the utmost respect, giving it the utmost importance. You just have to stop thinking that to invest are required large capitals you think you won’t ever have. The reality is that everyone has a capital. All, without exception.
For somebody it will be hundreds of thousands of dollars, for others tens of thousands, for others maybe only a few hundred dollars. It doesn’t matter.
Whatever the figure is, that is a capital that can be used for an investment.
