The financial crisis has certainly caused many to view many financial corporations in a bad light. Those company’s that operate as a corporation that manages private equity capital (these company’s invest directly and/or indirectly into various company’s) certainly felt the brunt of the national skepticism and hatred.
It has become the dream of Patrick Schattilly and I, Ronald Rodriguez, to launch a private equity company that does not fit into this traditional image.
This whole idea originally was born four years ago when we desired to connect various people who (1) had specific knowledge into a specific asset, (2) who were interested in learning more about the markets.
Of course, we faced skepticism considering the atmosphere. But the thing that hindered us the most was the fact that people were hesitant to trust two young men in their twenties with investment in relation to our knowledge and experience.
Neither of us will never deny the fact that those that denied us the opportunity had a factual concern. It must be said that we defiantly have shown the drive and willingness to learn to succeed while maintaining a high level of business ethics.
We were blessed that several people decided to take a chance on us, which enabled us to officially launch the investment club on March 2009. Bot of us have served as the primary officers of the organization since than. Since our launch our annualized return has been around 11%.
