We have investigated and tried several options.
Results of interest rates on savings accounts and inflation combined are in fact negative. In other words the value of saving become less and less. And it gets even worse, banks are already starting to charge a fee for managing savings accounts.
What about trading on the stock exchange. The stock exchange can be very dynamic and unpredictable and requires knowledge and expertise. Remember 2008. Even stock exchange guru Warren Buffet has lost millions last year. And at the beginning of 2016, when the stock market was more or less back at the levels of 2008, there was another sharp decline. We’ve made some money and lost some money. Although there are people that consistently make money on the exchange, we decided it is not the right strategy for us.
How about the property market? We've had extensive training and we've tried to operate in the Britisch property market, only quickly to find out that it is virtually impossible to be successful in that market without being on the ground and having a large network. In all we found that spending a lot of time in the UK, building a network is an investment in time and money that may in the end and lead to a yearly average rturn of around 8%. An interesting strategy, however still not ideal.
What we needed was information, therefore we teamed up with international experts in ournetwork. They revealed to us the world of alternative investments and this is what we found:
The international film industry is and has been an economy and market adverse industry. Statistics show that when economy goes down even more people go to the cinema, just to briefly escape from their daily reality. Because of this the risk involved in investing in the film industry is lower. Of course there are plenty of remaining aspects that determine whether a film is successful or not. However, with the right knowledge these aspects can be circumvented and the investment results can be made independent of the film’s overall success. It is even possible to successfully invest in a film that eventually turns out to be a total failure in the cinemas.
And here is fun part: This is not just about small films with an unknown cast. It includes international films with famous actors such as Silvester Stallone, Robert de Niro, Russell Crowe, Leslie Mann, Danny DeVito, Jennifer Garner or Kevin Spacey!
A track record of over 25 projects since 2012 shows this a profitable way of investing. To make sure it is not too good to be true we’ve participated ourselves in 4 projects and the results exceeded our expectations!
