Those who have come across the opportunity our fund provides, seem to have the same, surprised reaction upon learning that their principal investment remains protected, while earning a high interest rate of up to 6.5 percent APY (annual percentage yield). They’re usually taken aback and will say something like, “Wow, that’s a pretty good return for a short-term investment. How does that work?” It’s almost as if people are skeptical that safe, high interest rate investments still exist. Many think there’s a catch to it, or some hidden fees involved.
The truth is, there’s no catch. After several decades of experience with financial markets, we’ve developed an investment model to address a problem that currently affects many people today — there aren’t many investment options for conservative investors who can’t afford to gamble their savings in exchange for a higher interest rate. There simply aren’t any. This is why we created an alternative investment in real estate, structured as a Limited Partnership.
If you decide to invest, you’re limited to stocks, bonds, certificates of deposits (CDs), exchange traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, money market and savings accounts just to name a few. However, none of these options offer a combination of low risk and high returns. And for most of these options you’re likely to pay broker and additional fees. There’s always a trade-off. If you want an investment that will yield greater returns, you’ll have to increase your risk tolerance. If you’re looking for a safer investment that has lower risk, you’ll earn less. And with some products such as CDs, you’ll probably lose money at the current rate of inflation, or maybe earn close to nothing if you’re lucky, but sure, your money is FDIC insured. According to Bankrate, the average for a one-year CD yield is 0.27 percent, while five-year CDs are currently averaging 0.85 percent. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
While you can choose from an array of investments options, most people aren’t aware that some alternative investments, like a Limited Partnership with Jakob Pek Fund, can provide a better risk-toeturn ratio than most institutional products. Alternative investments, can encompass several different types of investments such as real estate investment trusts (REITs), real estate investments and master limited partnerships. However, the concept of alternative investments, leave many people befuddled, because it isn’t as well known, or better said, understood, as other financial products, such as those mentioned above. But yes, safe, high interest investments still exist.
Our investment opportunity is legally considered a Limited Partnership. This entity protects both the investor and the general partner (which in this case is us). So, while you’re passively earning income, we’re doing the background work at no additional fee to our investors. There’s no liability to you. You’re solely responsible for your investment, which is protected and secured by real estate collateral. When you invest in a Limited Partnership with Jakob Pek Fund, you’re passively investing in real estate and earning between 4.5 and 6.5 percent APY depending on the investment term you choose, which can be as little as 6 months up to 3 years. You’ll lock in a pre-determined interest rate with an option to renew, or cash out when your investment matures.
While not easily accessible, there are safe investments out there that will grow your savings. Your investment strategy should be unique to your lifestyle, financial goals and timeline. Now finding the right options can be challenging for some. In this case, the question you may need to ask yourself is, “Am I making the right investments?” If you’re losing money, or not making enough, chances are, you’re not.
