An investor in himself is the lead actor of the film called wealth-creation. Hence, there are multiple roles on board which he has to perform to small or large extent on his way to building wealth:
- Role of a student:
Before becoming an investor, an investor needs to become a student and get all the necessary information, knowledge and skills for becoming a thorough knowledgeable and skilful investor

Before giving medicines, a doctor checks for the disease that a patient may have. An investor, on similar lines, has to become a financial doctor and need to pen down the financial goals for which he wishes to make an investment.

Just as a designer creates customized design based on the needs of the client, an investor also has to create customized portfolio design which shall be in line with the time-frame, risk-bearing capacity and financial goals suitable to him.
- Role of an Analyst:
An investor needs to self-analyse the investment he makes into various asset classes viz Equity, Gold, Mutual Funds, Commodities etc. He needs to analyse whether the asset-classes, stocks, Mutual Funds he wishes to invest, are aligned to his risk-bearing capacity.
