The profile of an investor is an individual or entity that is intending to build wealth through long-term capital growth, or by receiving regular dividends and payments from investments. An investor holds any given asset for an extended period, typically 12 months or greater to take advantage of the available CGT discount. There is a fine line between being considered an investor and being considered a trader, and the tax implications between the two are great.
