Such an approach is not a great idea from the perspective of diversification. I would not put all my wealth into a single company.
Understanding a business well may not be enough. There are so many aspects of investing you do not have an impact on that such a bet would be a very risky one.

Welcome in the year 2018. The year 2017 was very good in the financial markets. The developed markets were growing steadily with S&P500, Nasdaq and British FTSE100 growing respectively +19.96%, +28.86% and +8.55%.
The emerging markets outpaced the developed markets with Argentinian Marvel raising +77.62%, Turkish XU100 +47.60%, Indian Sensex +27.91% and Polish WIG20 +26.35%. Results of those markets are even better if we refer them to one currency – for example Polish PLN gained +16.84% to the US Dollar in the year 2017.
The history of transactions
Today I will share with you the history of my best investment so far in my real wallet and also in the Warsaw Stock Exchange Freedom Portfolio.
What can you get?
Many employers offer a contribution to your retirement plan. In the US it is called a work sponsored 401(k), in the UK it is a personal pension plan – PPP.
How does it work and why use it?
tax relief – money goes to your personal pension plan or 401(k) account before you pay tax from them,
your employer’s contribution – extra money you receive from your employer to your retirement plan if you decide to save your money for retirement.
