One of the most popular presentations I give in training is the Soc 1 and 2 reports. The reasoning behind this is simple. The two reports generated by the two banks are very similar. However, there are a few differences between the two reports that make each bank slightly different.
First of all, here is the general format for an account-opening letter that will appear on both the SBA and the Soc 1 report: I AM VERY APOSTLE MICRO CHEF/Finance REPENTICE FOR THE TRADER BEGINNER! In case you didn’t know, you are an experienced investor already! You have been at this a long time or you wouldn’t be applying for your new brokerage business. Let’s be clear, even seasoned investors need help with the investing part of their businesses!
The next document you will receive is the business plan. This is also pretty standard fare. But what sets it apart is the detail. The purpose of this business plan is to detail exactly how the investor plans to conduct his business and what goals he has in mind. A good business plan is akin to a vision statement.
Now, when I’m asked to look at the contents of the Soc 1 report I often look for the most obvious problems or areas of concern. Usually that turns up in one of three ways: the company has too many debts, there aren’t enough assets to leverage, or perhaps the company is too big to be an underwriter. It is possible that the problems listed above could be true with just one or two of these factors, but if they are prevalent throughout the entire company then it is likely that these are the reasons for the poor performance. If you are an investor considering a company for investing in you then the first step should always be to obtain a full accounting of the company.
Now, an investor would do well to inquire about the details contained in their Soc 1 Financial Statements. First off, this means obtaining a report from the underwriter. Second, it means contacting the underwriter and getting a copy of the company’s complete financial statements. A well-prepared soc is better than an approximation, as inaccuracies can have a significant negative effect on your investment decision. Most of the Soc 1 banks have their own system of electronic filing, however occasionally they may still require physical documentation such as income taxes, bank statements, and other types of filings.
A complete statement will show all of the companies’ assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses, along with relevant information regarding each company member. The information provided should include balance sheet reports for each member. In addition, it should detail various financial ratios, such as PEG (expected growth), EBIT (earnings before interest and tax charges), and IFRS- International Financial Reporting Standards. If a company is using Vouchers or offsets then it is important to make sure that all financial statements are in line with your institution’s policies and procedures.
This type of report can be extremely useful in making sound investment decisions. For example, if a company is considering purchasing a property, a report detailing the property’s value should be obtained. By looking at several soc reports, the investors can quickly identify a good investment, one that they can afford without having to borrow too much money or risk not receiving enough money in the form of dividends. In order to obtain this type of financial information, it is often required that an investor consult with an investment banking firm or a licensed private investor.
There are many benefits to investing through a sociable investment club, as it provides investors with a place to gather and discuss their investment decisions. In fact, it can be a very valuable tool that allows investors to get their hands on information that they would never have access to otherwise. The opportunity for interaction and networking among investors is also a great way to get good investment advice. As well as these advantages, there is also the benefit of being able to know the experience and opinion of other investors, giving you a leg up on making better investment decisions.
