    SWOT is an acronym for

    S - Strengths

    It is used as a brainstrorming technique for determining how good an idea, or in this case an investment company, is. How robust are they at standing up to competition

    What Does SWOT Analysis Mean?

    A tool that identifies the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of an organization. Specifically, SWOT is a basic, straightforward model that assesses what an organization can and cannot do as well as its potential opportunities and threats. The method of SWOT analysis is to take the information from an environmental analysis and separate it into internal (strengths and weaknesses) and external issues (opportunities and threats). Once this is completed, SWOT analysis determines what may assist the firm in accomplishing its objectives, and what obstacles must be overcome or minimized to achieve desired results.

    SWOT Analysis

    When using SWOT analysis, be realistic about the strengths and weaknesses of your organization. Distinguish between where your organization is today, and where it could be in the future. Also remember to be specific by avoiding gray areas and always analyze in relation to the competition (i.e. are you better or worse than competition?). Finally, keep your SWOT analysis short and simple, and avoid complexity and over-analysis since much of the information is subjective. Thus, use it as a guide and not a prescription.

    Most investment counselors will suggest that you live on 80% of your income, invest 20%. They suggest that you further break down that 20% by putting 10% of your income into a diversified stock portfolio or a mutual fund (which is basically a pre-diversified stock portfolio), 5% into life insurance (whole life, not term), and 5% into an easily accesible savings account. Each serves a different purpose. Life insurance and easy access savings are called "risk management". Life insurance takes care of "final affairs" risks, savings takes care of any loss of employment issues. Mutual funds go beyond risk management, they build opportunities for the future. Both are important in their own way.
