PDI | M2 | The Investor's Toolkit
Transcript of PDI | M2 | The Investor's Toolkit
This presentation will explore several useful concepts and tools that will guide you towards growing your investment or business.
Deal flow is a qualitative term used to describe the rate at which investment offers and business proposals are being presented to potential investors.
A funding institution's deal flow can be generated from multiple sources such as, initial private offerings (IPO), private placement, acquisitions, and mergers.
While larger institutions can handle this diverse range of investment opportunities, smaller institutions tend to focus on deals that fall into their particular area of expertise.
As an individual looking for an investor, you want to find a funding institution with good deal flow. This means an institution that has sufficient deals to keep them profitable, but without being overwhelmed by new work. If this is the case, they are more likely to provide enough attention to your proposal. Another increasingly popular source of funding is the use of crowdfunding.
Due diligence is an investigation into the credibility of a business proposal. It delves into the risks associated with an investment opportunity by reviewing financial statements, annual reports, and any other information pertinent to the transaction.
As an investor, conducting due diligence will determine whether or not the proposed investment meets your investment objectives. It will determine the worthiness and risks associated with the investment, and will provide an indication of the expected returns you will receive.
In the case of a property acquisition, a seller may conduct due diligence on a buyer in order to establish whether or not the buyer has adequate capital to purchase the property.

Copywriting refers to marketing content that is published either through online or print media. Copy is written to attract a client's attention and to create brand awareness.
The aim of copy is to encourage a client to perform a particular action. The copy should be compelling enough to encourage this. Effective copy is important as it will direct potential clients to your website.

Conducting research into the property market will ensure you pursue the correct pricing strategy for your property.
