Presuming significant influence at a certain level of investment ownership is a risky game. While investments in the real estate market, technology companies, banks, and Canadian businesses can yield significant influence, there are a multitude of factors to consider before taking the plunge. Firstly, investors should be aware that large investments come with large risks. Depending on the type of investment, there is always the possibility of losing the entire initial investment. Secondly, investors should also consider the power of data and the possibility that artificial intelligence systems may shift the control of investments away from individuals. Furthermore, understanding the inferences that can be drawn from asset prices is an important factor in determining the level of investment ownership that yields significant influence. Finally, investors should be aware of the changes in governmental action and the effect of global powers on the world stage.
