Athletes and Investing: BC Kalev/Cramo Portfolios Part 4

Investing Strategy
May 14, 2024

We recently initiated a pioneering partnership with Estonia's basketball powerhouse, BC Kalev/Cramo, first time ever in Estonia establishing a sports sponsorship in crypto.

As a part of the exciting partnership, we looked into the investment experiences of the team's players. We were especially interested in how strategies from successful sports careers can effectively translate into savvy financial decisions.

Kalev/Cramo investment insights

Questions to the players are:

  1. When did you start investing?
  2. How is your investment portfolio distributed across different assets?
  3. Which investment do you consider your "3-point shot" and why?
  4. Are there any similarities between basketball and investing? If so, what are they?

  1. I began investing in 2014.
  2. My investment portfolio is divided such that 70% consists of stocks and sold stock options, while 30% comprises liquid assets.
  3.  My "three-pointer" in investments has been the intensive development of my personal knowledge and skills, which has provided me with confidence even in volatile markets. Additionally, I have achieved significant "three-point shots" through technical analysis, which has enabled me to identify the bottom prices of stocks and earn a 15-20% profit within just a few days.
  4. Patience is necessary in both investing and basketball. Sometimes, it is wiser to stand still rather than rush around aimlessly.

  1. I started my investment journey about three years ago when a teammate introduced me to investment opportunities. He particularly emphasised the potential of cryptocurrencies, which require informed risk management for successful utilisation. It is crucial to understand that some investment options are riskier than others.
  2. I have invested in cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and smaller currencies like Dogecoin. Additionally, I have started researching ETFs and index funds, though I have not yet invested capital in them. I plan to begin regularly investing in these funds monthly, allocating part of my monthly income for this purpose.
  3. I invested in Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin at the right time, with the most significant returns coming from Dogecoin. This cryptocurrency had significantly dropped by the time I invested, allowing me to achieve gains of over 50% several times within about a month.
  4. Indeed, basketball can be compared to investing – it pays to research and have a good strategy. It's important to follow the media and news, as well as international markets. You need to know the trends and be able to read charts to make the right moves at the right time.
