Money Goes to Smart People
"THE INDUSTRY HAS EXPLODED IN SCALE AND SCOPE IN RECENT YEARS WITH SOME $3 TRILLION IN GLOBAL ASSETS. THE 2,600 PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS IN THE UNITED STATES ARE INVESTED IN OVER 15,300 COMPANIES THAT EMPLOY ABOUT 8 MILLION PEOPLE, ACCORDING TO THE PRIVATE EQUITY GROWTH CAPITAL COUNCIL..."
THE CARTEL OBJECTIVE is to provide our client base with a low risk, high rate of return on investment via significant long-term capital appreciation. WE’RE SURE YOU’VE HEARD IT SAID:
"SMALL INVESTORS HAVE SELDOM BEEN MADE PRIVY TO PURCHASING STOCK IN PRIVATE COMPANIES PRIOR TO THEIR GOING PUBLIC LIKE THE SMART MONEY DOES."
Well, that may have been true a few years ago, but certainly, not any more! Let’s face it: The investment climate has changed drastically over the past few years. And as it has, 'investment opportunities' have as well. A recent Wall Street Journal advertiser devoted a full page to inform its readers:
"THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SMART MONEY,
ONLY SMART PEOPLE.
THE MONEY JUST GOES WHERE THEY GO."
And, as far as 'Money Going to Smart People' is concerned:
When on those rare opportunities a specific acquisition represents the potential of an unusually high return on investment – far above the norm, that which could easily equate to the Google Initial Public Offering of years ago whose IPO went out at $85 – by inviting accredited investors whose goals coincide with ours (Smart People, to share in the wealth), Cartel gains the ability to acquire greater numbers of acquisitions. This internal growth pattern results in a greater number of paydays to the partnership in general.
