Appropriate Product

We market products based on three criteria:

  1. It must be good for the financial advisor and their clients. 

  2. We must be passionate about the investment.

  3. It must be good for the investing public

Therefore, we are very selective in what we decide to market.  Based on the experience and passion of the partners, we specialize in raising money for selective managed money platforms, out-of-favor investments with a higher likelihood of long term success, medical advancement technologies, creative start ups, clean energy, and selective real estate ventures.  We raise money in the form of managed money, mutual funds, annuities and life insurance, and private placements.
