Former tennis star Stefan Edberg has a clear strategy on what he's doing with his 150m in prize money. "I'm a cautious general", he says in an interview with Näringsliv24.
It's been ten years since he put away his tennis shoes. Today he is a stockbroker, albeit moderate and careful. He claims to be satisfied with a yearly growth of 7-15 percent of his investments.
But he also knows when a ball is given to him. Like last spring when he started buying stocks while they were falling like stones at the Stockholm stock trade.
"If you can keep cool and buy when it looks really bad, it usually pays off in the end!", says Stefan Edberg to Näringsliv24.
Today he owns a part in the company Case Investment, where he is also a member of the board.
Concerning the nearest future his advise is to "take it easy this summer", it looks "a bit unsteady at present".
He doesn't want to disclose his best deal. But happily tells of his worst:
"I bought stocks in Spray and Global Crossing, and those companies don't exist anymore. One learns from one's mistakes", he says to Näringsliv24.
