Insights on Robert Kiyosaki’s Guide to Investing – Chapter 26


After learning about the qualified, accredited, sophisticated and inside investors, we now go on to this Chapter that discusses “The Ultimate Investor”.

The ultimate investor is someone who also have the same qualities and capabilities as the inside investor that the only difference is that the inside investor does not want to go public or offer his/her interests in the business to the public through the stock exchange.

The most prominent examples given by the author for these kinds of investors are Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Their path is that once they have figured out the formula of multiplying money, they would go on to offer their shares of stock to the public and let the market’s behavior decide whether to buy, sell or trade.

Being an ultimate investor is also good like being an inside investor. The only difference is that those really interested in being a part owner of your organization are willing to dish out money and become your co-owner. You could also easily track of the desirability of your shares once it goes public and be able to realize gains whenever the public buys your shares at a surplus.

The downside of being an ultimate investor is that it is costly to go public and authorities are not lenient when it comes to the requirements asked of you to provide. It is also hard to comply with various authorities that requires financial statements, tax payments and other documentary evidences on a specified period of time. For this very reason, some well-known organizations and corporations choose to remain as inside investors rather than become an ultimate investor.

There are the pros and the cons on every side, it is a matter of deciding as to which path would be more fruitful and advantageous to the investor. In the end, it is the investor’s goal that must be achieved and not to become the ultimate investor. As discussed in the earlier chapters, once we have set our goals, those very goals are what we have to achieve, it does not specify which path to take, it will now depend on the capabilities and traits of the investor to determine which path is to be taken.

As an investor, do you have already figured out a plan for the attainment of your goals? Have you chosen the path that would complement your experience, education and excess cash? Did you also consider your potentials to create an asset or knowledge in applicable laws? Feel free to tell what’s on your mind through the comments section and I’ll try my best to give you an advice. Thanks for reading!
