I had never thought of hiring an investment management corporation before. Actually, I have always taken a very hands-on approach to business. I learned it from my father - an entrepreneur himself. He never believed in investment capital management with the help of a broker. By doing the paperwork himself, he cumulated a financial fortune. Yes, he worked almost 80 hours a week and died at the age of 55 of a heart attack, so there are things about his way of living that I don't really want to do. Even so, managing investment myself was a difficult habit to break.

Nevertheless, eventually I simply could not handle it any longer. I am not sure if my investment portfolio had grown too diverse, too large, or if I simply didn't have my father's skill for figures. For whatever reason, I was too busy to manage the family business and manage my investments. It was obviously what I had to give up. I hired a good capital asset management company the very next day.

Many things have been difficult about the new investment management company. The most hard, of course, has been giving up some control on my investments. I tried to keep as tight a leash as possible as soon as I hired the investments management firm. I wanted to know about every transaction, approve every decision, and in general. keep my hands in the pie at all times. Finally, my broker talked to me honestly. He said that there was no point in having a mutual funds manager if I was going to try to do all the work anyway. He then asked me very straightforwardly if I still wanted him to take care of my mutual funds management or not. I backed down, understanding he was right.

However, the hardest thing about investment management has been recognizing the fact that this company has done a better job than I have with it. Even with the cash that I have to pay them, I am still making a huge amount more off of my investments than I ever have before. My investment portfolio has grown at twice its regular rate this year, and shows no sign of slowing down. I had almost expected having to take control back at first. Part of me had even hoped that investment management would turn out to be a bad experiment. After all, it is difficult to admit that someone else can be more efficient than you are.
