All high-powered, successful investors, from Warren Buffett to George Soros, advise their fellow investors to diversify. As much as we’d all like to think we have the skill to pick the next Google and Amazon at just the right time, no person’s predictive power can leap that far ahead of the pack. Unfortunately for all of us, this principle works in reverse. No one can see exactly when a crash is coming. Sure, some predict crashes some of the time, but no one picks the next correction all of the time. The only true defense is diversification.
For the individual investor, even those with six-figure portfolios, true diversification has proven difficult. To really diversify, you need to go beyond stocks, bonds, and treasuries, but buying hard assets is often beyond the individual’s means. For decades, Davenport Laroche has helped make alternative investments, including commercial and rental real estate and precious metals, affordable for individual investors.
In a masterstroke of investment innovation, Davenport Laroche turned the 2008 economic crisis into an opportunity to create a diversification opportunity for the individual investor that guarantees the safety of their principal and annual earnings of over 20 percent. Davenport Laroche was able to do this by opening the shipping container leasing investment category, once the domain of institutional investors and the extremely wealthy, to the individual investors like you.
Who is Davenport Laroche?
Davenport Laroche has offices across the globe, including London, Sydney, Shanghai, Dubai, and Hong Kong. The company runs its container shipping division out of Hong Kong because of the region’s very high demand for shipping containers. As a company focused on leveling the playing field in favor of the individual investor, Davenport Laroche provides low-cost options for investors to purchase stakes in large real estate developments, as well as gold and gemstones.
Davenport Laroche has been helping individual investors for 100 years. As an international company, Davenport Laroche is able to leverage opportunities in many international markets, allowing investors to diversify beyond their home country’s economy and currency. China’s accelerating growth and investment in infrastructure, including its development of megalopolis urban centers and the high speed rails and mega bridges to connect them, can be expected to support the growth of shipping trade. This increase in economic activity serves as an indicator of continued, long-term growth of the container-leasing business.
Davenport Laroche – Container Investing
Container leasing is much easier to get started in than some alternative investments, such as hedge funds. Rather than needing hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets to achieve accredited-investor status, container-leasing investors can start with just 3 containers, for a total investment of $13,225 USD as of May, 2018. The investor has no other overhead to worry about and sees a return within a few months.
To start the process, the investor selects the containers he wishes to purchase, which a Davenport Laroche representative can facilitate. The investor then receives the deed of sale for the containers. We then go right to work leasing the containers to Fortune 500 companies shipping out of Hong Kong.
Davenport Laroche – Safe and Reliable
Unlike stock or bond investments, where the investor must risk his or her cash in exchange for a moderate dividend, shipping-container leasing guarantees the safety of the investor’s principal, while also providing a rate of return that exceeds even the best dividend stocks and high-yield bonds.
Davenport Laroche makes this incredible investment opportunity possible by agreeing to buy back the investor’s containers after a five-year period for at least the initial investment price. The investor can also choose to sell his or her containers at any point beforehand, though with the incredible income investors enjoy, very few investors ever want to sell their containers. In fact, they want to use their profits to buy more.
The Rate of Return
Investors can choose a guaranteed-income investment plan or take the income commanded by the market rate. Historically, the market rate provides the highest rate of return. Annual yields average better than 10 percent. Last year, investors earned an astounding yield of 24.92 percent. By taking the market-based plan, investors assume the risk of a drop in shipping prices, which drops their yields.
Investors who wish to enjoy steady returns with no possibility of variance can sign up for the guaranteed-return plan. In this case, investors are guaranteed a 12-percent annual return. Returns are paid quarterly. Investors owning more than 5 containers can elect to have their income distributed on a monthly basis.
Happy investors say they love the Davenport Laroche shipping-container investment system. They are able to view the location of their containers online at anytime and easily calculate their profits. They also love the responsiveness of Davenport Laroche representatives. Most of all, they appreciate the ability to diversify their portfolios with an investment once open only institutions and the very rich. Now they can truly invest like the pros.
