Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why are there no pictures of your team?
A: We see no need to reveal ourselves just yet. We are a group of individuals who seek freedom and good investment opportunities. We don’t need to work with everyone and not everyone is right for us. We do not even advertise much. If you found our page it is because you heard about us through a friend or a discreetly chosen resource or referral partner.
Q: Who runs this site?
A: One of our team members who wanted to extend a few of these opportunities to a few select communities opted to create the site so as to share it with select members of the public.
Q: Do you issue T-slips?
A: No. And we probably wont. Although we are an actual fund, it is a long process to get regulated and some of the markets we invest in are unregulated. We run our operations off shore.
Q: Isn’t investing risky?
A: Sure, its not for everyone. We think its risky to put all your faith into a job or a company and hope it will all work out after 30 years but many people do that. We think its risky not to do your own research. We think its risky not knowing about money, the markets, or where your money is going, or what its doing… But many people do that too.
Q: Why should I trust you?
A: You shouldn’t. You haven’t met us or spoken to us yet. Wait til then to do that. If you are selected for a potential to invest with some of our opportunities then you will be contacted and we will speak over the phone and then maybe meet in person. Only after knowing the facts and gathering the data, then you should decide if you can trust us or not.
Q: How much should I invest?
A: Its your choice. And it’ll always be your choice. Our minimum is $5000 on most deals and $10,000 on some.
Q: How do you vet your deals?
A: We go through an extensive process of fact finding. (Fact finding is one of our super strengths.) We analyze market, risks, ROI potential, history, and most importantly the team and of course the details of the deal. We share the opportunity among our friends and colleagues. We often put off investing for weeks or months at a time.
Q: What are your fees?
A: Our fees differ depending on the investment type, however they are always based on performance.
Q: What do you mean by that/Can you be more specific about your fees?
A: Usually, there is a front end fee for initial setup and sometimes a back end fee based on the return to investors (performance). We only do this because we know that the investor will benefit multiple times over and far more than us for placing the investment. (Example: 7% up front fee and 7% on back end fee, with a historical performance of 80% ROI before fees vs. 3% fee at the bank and 3% ROI.) We invest in our deals ourselves, so we are not dependent upon making money on your money and we are not hoping for a “chance in hell” the investment will perform. We put our money where our mouth is. Well sort of… You know what we mean. We only offer deals to clients after we have invested already and benefited.
Q: Are you investing in mutual funds?
A: A mutual fund is a pool of stocks, bonds and other securities held in trust on behalf of individual investors. So in that way it is a fund. However, it is not a mutual fund like in the same way you are used to or like the banks spend millions of dollars every year to market to you with single digit returns.

- Only invest what you can afford to lose.
- The greater the risk, the greater the return. Invest in your risk tolerance.
- There’s no such thing as risk. – risk means potential for injury or loss.
always get your principal back first
- Do not borrow money to invest – unless you really know what you’re doing and are a proven savvy investor with solid knowledge of fundamentals.
- Read, read and read. The best investment will always be in yourself. Even Buffet says that. We agree.
- If you are an experienced investor, and you know how to invest and have invested successfully in profitable deals over the years, then borrow to invest. All day long. As long as your gain is higher than your cost of borrowing, its free money. (The 1% do it all the time!)
- It should be simple.
- There are no guarantees on performance ever. Those are impossible to predict. The markets change and evolve based on people and emotions and trends.
- When it comes to investing, knowledge is power.
