International investments offer such a variety of choice that anyone
can follow the powerful recommendation to turn your passion into
profit…even if you are 16 years old.
This letter from our friend Thomas Fischer at Jyske Bank proves it!
I often think of your investment philosophy "only invest in something
you know or care about." I want to tell you a story about this.
"My 16 year old son Matthias is mad about football (soccer). He plays
himself and also follow Manchester United in England and FC
Copenhagen in Denmark.
"He has been to many live FC Copenhagen games and watches Manchester
United on the television.
"We had his confirmation 2 years ago and he received several money
gifts totaling around DKK 6500 (USD 1,000). He chose to invest the
money on the stock exchange making his first investments (he was 14
then) buying shares in Manchester United and FC Copenhagen.
"About a year ago the American investor Frazer bought Manchester
United. “Matthias was bought out making a 25% profit in one year.
"The story gets even better because his shares in FC Copenhagen are
now trading at DKK 645 and he bought at DKK275 two years ago giving
him a profit of 135%!
"He has also received dividends and free tickets to some of the
matches so his total return is even higher.
"He didn’t know anything about stocks and bonds but chose to invest
in something he cared about. He has now instructed me to sell half his
position in FC Copenhagen because as he says ‘I will have recouped my
money and still have shares giving me tickets and dividends and
perhaps further increases.’
"As an investment banker I am proud of him but how do I now explain
to him that its not always that easy!! Also I used to have the
investment section of the paper to myself but know I have to share it
story is getting still even better because the share jumped
65,- this morning (+10%) and is now trading at 710 versus 645 Friday
and Matthias total gain is now 158% in 2 years (not counting benefits
such as tickets and dividends). He has already called me and we sold
half his position at 710.

it is that easy! Be childlike. Invest in what you love and
know and let the power of enthusiasm enhance you profit.
