I was talking to a friend just now, he is the investor cum consultant with a company (something to do with Gold) good friend of mine, so we were talking about the current brouhaha about the raid from some government agencies on the company..
I really like the calmness exuded from my friend,when asked if he was worried about his investment being "frozen",he said there was nothing to worry about and because he just could not do anything about it,which is quite true.
Well,may be my friend was not too worried about his investment being "frozen" because he is considered a 'high worth" individual but what about those investors who took their life's long savings and invested in this company with such a handsome ROI per year.
We really do not know what would come out from the Bank Negara's investigation on this company and how long but just imagine those sleeplessness nights,those anxiety, and the fate of their hard earned savings and those stress of waiting to know about the eventual outcome from Bank Negara.
I guess we need to be reminded of the archaic saying of "High Return,High Risk", this is the old saying but the caution that it expounds is forever so true but then again, the greed of man will always hold us back from believing in fundamentals..
I am not saying that we should not once in a while engage in "High Risk, High Gain' investments but we must always take into account how much we are willing to lose if our investments turn ugly,then we would not cry foul.........
Note : Just to ask, have you ever been approached by anyone promising you Heaven and Earth for your money?
P/S : If we are not careful and let the greed keeps imbuing our mind,we will end up loser
