Private investments are privately issued equity or debt securities offered by a business, from start-ups to late-stage companies investing in varied classes such as oil, mining, minerals, energy, green and ethical positions. These investments are offered through a private offering (private placement)
For decades, companies have been unable to advertise or publicly seek out investors for private investment. Only well-connected persons had access to these high yield opportunities. Therefore, many investors have never had experience of private offerings such as private placement, real estate syndications or private investment funds.
The potential for returns and obvious diversification benefits are not the only advantages of private investments, these long-term positions eliminate general concerns about the broader economy.
