You’ve made it this far. How far do you want to go?
Hi, it’s Arturo Venti, CEO of BAI Capital.
Today I’m going to share a story about investments that will help you determine what type is best for you.
Capital investments are as varied as the wind. Some are constant and dependable, others come strong and hard, others appear out of nowhere and disappear just as fast.
Each of us has a risk threshold beyond which we become uncomfortable, just like with the wind. While I believe it’s true that we can do mental exercises and such to increase this level, I also think our core threshold is generally what it is.
The thing with risks and investments is that the riskier investment sometimes provides the most potential for returns. The risky investment can also be a complete dud. Or, it can be very profitable, but only for a limited time.
From my perspective, risky, high return investments need more active management and analysis to ensure that one doesn’t come out on the losing end. On the other end of the spectrum, lower risk investments can provide lower yet more stable returns. The capital gains can often be seen without much active management.
Experienced investors often have both types of risk investments in their portfolio, with unique portions of each type, accordingly.
What about you? How do you like to invest?
For the last 10 years as head of BAI Capital, I’ve been providing my clients with a range of private US based equity, visa and realty investment opportunities.
I’m going to let you in on a little something. I’ll be honest, if you were to grade BAI Capital on the spectrum of risk to no-risk, you would definitely find us more on the no-risk side. Not that we don’t also have offerings in high return funds. We do! It’s just been my experience that most of our investors seek us out to work on diversifying their portfolio with conservative type opportunities.
Now, I’ll describe some differences within BAI Capital Investments:
Within the same investment fund, for example, we may have partners coming in for a range of projected returns. From guarantees at 7% annually plus 10% coupons as a preferred equity partner, to unlimited partnership shares with up to 30% annual returns as a common or unlimited partner.
Or, you can come in as a mezzanine lender, for an even lower risk opportunity, coming just after the senior lender/ bank in the waterfall of capital distribution.
We have even more options for the advanced and experienced investor, just ask us for more information. At the end of the day, you know where you stand with your capital, and you probably have a good idea where you want to go next.
I can share in more detail some of our current funds, and in specific, opportunities in Florida and New York State. You can do the analysis to determine which one is the best route for you.
