Abstract:

The world of investing can be overwhelming and even intimidating, for the new investor. Uncertainties abound in speculating pundits, media given to hyperbole, multiple sources of advice, and even one’s own knowledge the markets or rather, lack thereof. Considering this current state, methods to increase investor confidence in both themselves and in their understanding of the markets are sought-after and desired, by new investors and experienced alike, to potentially provide the impetus to invest, and the resiliency to continue. Whereas investing is inherently concerned with the future, personal and strategic foresight are similarly applied with a future-focused lens. This paper explores the
intersections of financial planning, market futures, and foresight (both personal and strategic) to answer the questions: How can non-professional investors employ personal and strategic foresight to sustain confidence in an uncertain future? Expert interviews and an exploratory workshop were conducted, informed by a review of key aspects of the investing world, investors themselves, and personal and
strategic foresight methods, to propose avenues for foresight in investing, and a personal foresight investing model.
