Investing 101

Over 45 years ago, when I studied business and was trained by an US Investment Company as a financial consultant, we learned that three important criteria for long term investments were security, return on investment and disposability. Accordingly, main long-term investments were made in tangible assets like stock and real estate, including equity funds and real estate funds. If you owned good real estate in a politically stable country while the economy was able to support businesses and renters to pay your rent, your investment was safe, provided a market-conform return on investment, increased in value and was marketable any time with a good profit. At the same time it protected you from inflation and currency reforms. The same results were possible with good stock. That time is over!!!

Unfortunately we cannot rely on these investment strategies anymore. Nowadays, there is no more reliance in the natural unfolding of local, national and international economies and political systems. These factors are a pawn in the hands of omnipotent corporations and entities and greatly manipulated. The world is controlled by despotism of the financial powers and their internationally accepted programs and agreements.

People who are not enslaved yet by their debts and still have equities available are increasingly challenged how to protect their assets from partial or total loss not to mention profitable returns on investment. As mentioned earlier, we are not dealing with normally reacting and changing markets anymore, recognizable and predictable by fundamentals that we have studied and experienced historically. We are fighting an intentionally man-made unique risk that no one has experienced or learned about before, which can get out of control with devastating effects at any time!

During the last few years I have often been asked for my opinion about the best and safest investment alternative available under the present circumstances. My answer was always the same: It is the ownership of selected waterfront property on a safe lake with drinking water in British Columbia, for many people the most desirable province of the most desirable Country in the world, Canada. Investments in the special market niche of highly coveted rare waterfront properties in the womb of mother nature, far enough away from big cities, industries, earth quakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and nuclear plants that cover all aspects I can think of as being crucial in the threatening situation we’re in.

The more worldwide economies and financial markets weaken and political and environmental risks increase, the more worldwide investors are looking for safe investments. The more they will want to own such valuable self sufficiency waterfront property as their place of refuge in the Canadian nature, the more prices will skyrocket.

A growing number of international business owners, many of them from Asia and Latin America, got this message and are already investing considerably in Canada. They make their money in their home countries where they can take calculable financial risks. With their earnings, however, they act ultra-conservative and move them to the non correlated safe haven Canada. They have been investing big time for many years in the exploding real estate market in Vancouver, BC. In the meantime real estate vendors in Vancouver and foreign investors themselves are spreading out into the rural areas of British Columbia.

An important investment criterion is that the price development for Binta Lake Farm Wilderness Estates does not depend solely on our local or even national economy. Our potential buyers live all over the world and many people already dream of owning such a property in Canada. They see Canada as the safest and most beautiful country to live and invest in. Many of them prefer to live in BC and dream to settle down – if possible – far away from big cities, industries and masses of people in a rural area on a lake with good water supply where they can provide their own food by gardening, raising animals, hunting, fishing, mushroom and berry picking and feel safe personally as well as with their money investment in Canadian nature.

Even if the world economies stay strong or recover after a crash, our estates will be wanted for recreational and residential purposes by people who are making money (again) anywhere in the world. This means that even during or after a meltdown the value of our estates will develop independently from our local and national economy, being determined by the demand of international investors. For these reasons, Binta Lake Farm Wilderness Estates provide the best chance to the owners to weather any crises and to get money into their hands even after a collapse. These estates simply offer the best possible chance of a safe and profitable investment no matter what will happen.
