"Sorry to make you wait." Haru sat down beside him. The cafe had closed and it was his time to talk with
"No problem. I am the one who was bothering you in the early morning," Ayase said politely.
"Ayase-san, you don't need to be that polite. I am younger than you after all," Yuuki said.
"I can't do that. If everything goes smoothly then you're going to become my boss in the future," Ayase said.
Haru smiled and said, "Well, let's talk on that table." He stood up and sat down on the edge of the table in his cafe.
"Sure." Ayase nodded and also followed Haru behind. His first impression of Haru was different from what he had imagined. He wondered how a 16-year-old young man would be able to give him a different feeling. He felt that he was looking at a large mountain that the summit couldn't be seen with his eyes. He sat down in front of Haru and took a deep breath.
"Can I see your resume?" Haru asked.
"Sure." Ayase took out his resume from his suitcase and gave it to him.
Haru nodded and started to read his resume. He was only curious, but he didn't think much since his soon father-in-law had recommended this man to him.
"Please enjoy these." Yuri came while giving both tea and cookies on the table.
"Thank you." Ayase who sniffed the aroma of the tea felt very relaxed for some reason. However, he didn't touch his tea and waited for Haru to read his resume.
Haru slightly nodded looking at Yuri with a smile.
Yuri stuck out her tongue while looking at him.
Haru shook his head then looked at Ayase. "Ayase-san, I am not sure about your ability, but I have heard from Uncle Eichi that you're an ex-director of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group."
"Yes." Ayase nodded and felt a bit embarrassed when Haru talked about it since he didn't really want to remember it. He was quite angry when those guys were making him a scapegoat. He needed to have a job, but with this bad resume. It was hard to search for a job. He was lucky enough to provide his family with his savings, but he knew it wouldn't last long. He knew that his only hope was the young man in front of him.
"I am a layman in this area. What advice can you give me?" Haru said directly. He knew how to manage a fund, but he was too lazy to do it by himself. Working as a financial analyst was hard work and he needed to spend his time looking at the computer all the time. He wouldn't get time to go out with his girlfriends if he did this by himself.
"Before answering that question, can you tell me why you have decided to open your own investment company?" Ayase asked.
"The reason is simple... Money. I want to make money. I don't want a bank to eat my money," Haru said.
Ayase loved this straightness of Haru. Even though it seemed vulgar, it was the only reason why people entered this market. His wife was from Russia and he didn't appreciate the humility of the people in this country. However, he needed to tell him that it was too hasty to enter this world without preparation. "I can see that you're very interested in this investment area but don't you read that there is an economic crisis around the world?"
"I can see that, but that's not going to stop me from making more money," Haru said.
"You're very confident?" Ayase was surprised since he also knew that it was also a chance to make money.
"I am a pirate and the captain." Haru pointed his finger at himself and said, "The investment company is the ship and I need both vice-captain and the crew inside this ship."
"It seems that you have prepared," Ayase said and felt this metaphor was quite good.
"Yes, but I want to hear advice from the professional to see whether that vice-captain's position is suitable or not. If I am going to invest, what potential risk factors do I need to pay attention to now?" Haru asked.
Ayase seemed to be excited and adjusted his position. He had become serious and said, "First, the notable risk factor is the leverage that hasn't been lifted, which may completely hinder economic growth."
"Secondly, as the economic cycle progresses, we will definitely see higher interest rates and re-emphasized inflationary pressures in the future, but I think that inflation will not be a concern in at least the next few years."
"In addition, stricter supervision after this crisis, especially for financial and other industries, may have an impact on the stock market. In the long run, most companies can gradually adapt to this policy change, but in the short to medium term, the enhancement potential of some companies may be negatively affected by tighter regulations."
Ayase took out a stack of doc.u.ments from his suitcase and said, "This is the analysis result of some listed companies that I have sorted out." He had prepared a lot of preparation to search for another job in other companies, but reality hit him hard since his age wasn't young anymore.
Haru read the data of financial analysis that had been sorted by Ayase. His opinion of Ayase had increased when he looked at this data.
What is data? Data is a signal, a signal that tells you what has happened or is about to happen.
The collection and analysis of data is a chore, time-consuming and boring.
Those who have a large amount of data also leave the impression that they are skilled in business and have solid basic work. They can focus on collecting, organizing, and analyzing large amounts of data. Such people are often dedicated to work and take work as their sole focus.
What's more, some people are also good at finding correlations from complex data, revealing the nature of things, and making suggestions to solve problems. Such people are not only clever but admirable.
Therefore, Haru's perception of Ayase Nozomu has been improved by another level. As the saying goes, opportunities are always reserved for those who are prepared. But in Haru's view, only wise people can seize the opportunity and have a better future. Opportunity is reserved for those who are ready.
"It seems that you are really ready already. I would like to ask, as a senior financial investor, what do you want to say to me as a newcomer in the industry?" Haru asked.
Ayase sighed and wasn't sure what to say. He really hoped that he didn't make this young man angry. "Disorder is the source of losses, and you should never consider yourself rich in the investment market. It is rich and willful because it will turn people into beggars. Humanity is greedy, but greed without restraint will be a disaster."
"If you make a good investment, you will multiply your wealth. If you don't do it well, it will be a redistribution of wealth. There are countless people here to obtain wealth through correct operations, but too many people give up their wealth with their own hands."
"Although the rules in financial markets are not as clearly stipulated as the law, touching them will be severely punished by the market. When the market price rises and falls, the change of thinking changes instantly. Only by constantly learning and improving yourself can you keep up with the market."
"Don't yell at unsatisfactory fluctuations, that will only dazzle your head, and don't brace your feet for a mistake, because it is impossible to be unfortunate every time. Technology can learn, but the mind can only rely on yourself!"
"The above is my experience in these years, I hope to give you some help."
Haru clapped his hands and said, "Wonderful! I'll remember your words"
They continued to talk to each other and Haru was satisfied with this person.
Haru took out an envelope and said, "Here is one million yen cash and it is my advance salary for you." He took out a paper and said, "This is your employment contract." He had prepared everything and only needed people to work on his financial investment company.
Ritsu had helped him with everything from contacting the lawyer and even rented the place for the company.
Haru was wondering whether he should build her a body later in the future.
Ayase didn't expect Haru to give him cash directly, but he didn't mind and he was excited since he had been accepted. He was very excited and very happy at that moment. "Thank you so much, boss! Thank you for your kindness! I will work hard for you!" His eyes were red and he bowed his head.
"It's okay. You're a personal talent. I believe that I haven't helped the wrong person. I hope that we will cooperate with each other, support each other, grow each other, and have a win-win cooperation," Haru said. He smiled and comforted him before saying, "You look at the contract first, if there is no problem, sign it, and then I have something to arrange for you."
"Okay, thank you again." Ayase knew that it was too shameful for someone in his 40's to cry like this, but he was really happy. He took the employment contract then he didn't hesitate to sign it immediately.
"Give you three days to solve your personal problems. Then, you call this and ask attorney Kazue Takanashi, she will give you a copy of the company information registered in the Marunouchi district. Your office space is not too big, enough space for 10 people to work, and then recruit six employees, two finance, two experienced traders, the remaining two are administrative staff."
"The cost of setting up the company can be obtained after you see attorney Takanashi, she will pay you the investment funds. In the beginning, I will not invest too much. The funds will be credited to the company's account after a period of time. Before the funds are received, I hope you can come up with a practical and reliable investment plan, preferably a short-term income plan."
"Is there a problem?" Haru asked.
"No problem!" Ayase replied solemnly and looked at Haru with a serious expression. "Please be assured that the boss, I will not let you down. My personal problems can be dealt with in one day, and I will set up the company as soon as possible. Boss, what's our company name?"
'Company name, huh?' Haru thought for a while and said, "Longinus."
