You're a Passive + Ground up Investor

Passive Investor/Low-Maintenance Investor

This may well be the most common type of investor, with traits that might include:

  • Lacks time to monitor investments
  • Enjoys reading financial news
  • Likes to own a little bit of a lot of things
  • Seeks to match, not beat, the market
  • Looks up to investors such as Warren Buffett

This type of investor might be unemotional about the process while being active in portfolio management. They have an understanding of multiple types of investments as well as their overall risks.

In general, this type of investor is proactive when selecting investments, but less so when it’s time for balancing and maintenance. Their philosophy? A long-term buy and hold philosophy.

Ground Up Asset: Ground-up development is the construction of a real estate asset completely from scratch. The starting point is either raw, undeveloped land or the complete tear-down of any existing structure. This is one of two general types of construction projects. The other is a renovation, in which contractors rebuild some of the structure’s components, but leaves some or most structural elements intact. With ground up developments, it takes longer to see a distribution, but the project returns tend to be generally higher and allows investors to take advantage of multiple refinancing scenarios.
