Clopton Capital has an excellent solution that carries both massive potential and relatively low risk
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) August 15, 2011
According to Clopton Capital, a Chicago-based commercial financing firm, many people are veering away from the traditional stocks, mutual funds and bonds. This is believed to be largely because of the massive volatility in the stock market today, and due to a massive commercial credit shortage. The associates of Clopton Capital believe this market has polarized people towards high risk alternative investments and ultra-low risk traditional investments such as treasury bonds and worse yet, certificates of deposit.
Jake Clopton, the founder of Clopton Capital had this to say, “For those in the risky and possibly more lucrative mind set of investing in hedge funds, real estate and other alternatives to the low risk less potent investments Clopton Capital has an excellent solution that carries both massive potential and relatively low risk.” The hedge fund being spoken of by Jake Clopton is an investment strategy that involves supplying capital to fund short term bridge loans. These commercial loans are then given to commercial property owners at an amount significantly less than the property that is used as collateral.
Clopton Capital is offering this investment as a way to recruit capital that years ago would have most likely came from banks and other financial institutions that no longer have the easy access to credit they once did. “This is a strange time in American history, banks don't have the capital, many investors don't want the risk, and everyone seems to be sticking their necks out farther and farther to make their businesses succeed”, said Eric Smith of the current market and credit atmosphere in America.
Clopton Capital is currently working to develop their client base by promoting this alternative investment to accredited investors throughout the world. They expect that building a clientele of affluent investors will take more than a year and retention of those clients will be exceptional. The contributed funds will be held in a separate legal entity from Clopton Capital, allowing last signature control for any investors. This gives an extra added security blanket that is really structured for the comfort of the investors. “Allowing investors to have fully transparent investments will give them a comfort level that is not available anywhere in the stock market. Not only will they be able to see their money hard at work, but they will be able to see the entire process by which it is deployed,” Says Jake Clopton.
