Markets performance analysis

Little posting history makes it hard to understand the personality of Vadane Deninard.
The “public booth” thread could be seen as a quite well presented attempt to “rep grind”.
Vadane Deninard is a relatively new player some of his statements (low sec mining…) show that. Some Investors might be less comfortable investing in someone who could make mistakes.
Due to the risks bound with the trading profession, and due to the considerations listed in the “negatives” section, the Auditor classifies this investment as very high risk.
Please notice how “very high risk” does not mean “unsafe”. It’s two different concepts. Talking about high risk of bad performance, risk of real life complications etc. is one thing, the ever present chance of scam is another. The latter cannot be prevented by an audit, which only acts as first line deterrent.
The Investee seems competent (skills wise and player wise) enough to deliver on his statements and has past positive records. His business is in a growth phase, his API records show he may operated as he stated.
Basically, the Investee looks like having the ability to successfully honor an IPO. Notice how an audit may only evaluate the ability or potential of an Investee to succesfully honor a bond / IPO.
The Auditor suggests perspective Investors NOT to invest their full capital on this venture but to offer what they could eventually afford to lose.
