Most people have taken some steps to address their financial concerns, but many feel that more can be done. The problem is that most people do not have the ability to distance themselves from immediate concerns, the expertise to know what opportunities are the best, or the time to look at all possibilities.
At ICONS INTERNATIONAL GROUP, we work together with our Clients with four central tenets guiding us:
- 1. Our Clients interest always comes first
- 2. Take risks worth taking
- 3. Every dollar counts
- 4. Increase the chances of success
Frequently, investor sentiment toward a particular project, security or asset class can be carried to an extreme, affecting its valuation such that it embodies overly optimistic or pessimistic expectations. By employing a qualitative and analytical discipline that removes the emotion from the investment decision, we can consistently and successfully identify advantageous opportunities for our Clients. We will expose our Clients only to the best of those opportunities in the market according to our expertise in the development of International Business Opportunities, Capital Ventures, Joint Ventures, Projects, Acquisitions, New Company setup’s, or growth stock sector rather than on traditional institutional picks.

- The identification of existing competitors in the markets concerned and potential new competitors. Managerial myopia in identifying competitive threats is a well recognized phenomenon. Identifying such threats is particularly problematic, since they may arise from substitutability on the supply side as well as on the demand side. Managers or companies who focus only on the product market arena in scanning their competitive environment may fail to notice threats that are developing due to the resources and latent capabilities of indirect or potential competitors.

At Icons we benchmark with competition.
