Normally, the rich are the only ones who can access early investment opportunities in cannabis. Fortunately, it’s now a level playing field…
The smartest and richest investors in the world are going all on in cannabis, but when it comes to investing in a high-growth industry, the elite have normally had the edge over retail investors.
Let me explain…
If you have a lot of money, a bank is willing to provide you with your own private banker who offers the type of wealth management not available in mass-market retail banking.
And if you’re a part of the “1%,” you hire your own bankers and open a “family office.” A family office is an organization created solely to look after the interests of families that have more money than they know what to do with. It handles tax and investment issues, plans how to move wealth from one generation to the next, coordinates charitable giving, acts as a concierge service to the family by planning vacations and using connections to access sold-out concert tickets, and even finds the best lawyers for family members who find themselves in trouble.
But the main job of a family office is to help rich people stay wealthy and put even more money in their bank accounts. In the past, that has meant investing in high-growth industries, like tech.
Today, family offices are making investments in cannabis companies before they go public. They do not face some of the restrictions of other wealth-management firms. Specifically, the prohibition on investing in a federally illegal business does not apply to these organizations.
After reading all that, you might be saying, “That’s great, Greg, but I’m not part of the 1%. How can the little guy compete when the super wealthy have so many connections and access to private investments?”
Thanks to changes in the law, the investing playing field is turning into a level playing field.
The Billionaire Push to Buy Cannabis Stocks
Some view cannabis as just an investing “trend,” but the richest and smartest investors don’t stay rich by losing money – and they’re putting their money in cannabis.
Billionaire hedge fund investor Leon Cooperman has personal money in the cannabis space, investing in CannTrust Holdings (TSX: TRST, OTC: CNTTF) and Green Thumb Industries (CSE: GTII, OTC: GTBIF). He also has a stake in iAnthus Capital Holdings Inc. (CSE: IAN, OTC: ITHUF).
And Peter Thiel – known for co-founding PayPal before it sold to eBay for $1.5 billion – has 75 million shares in Tilray Inc. (Nasdaq: TLRY) through an investment firm backed by his Founders Fund.
A tiny cannabis startup has just revealed a stunning video from a clinical trial. It’s video proof of what can be a cure for one of today’s deadliest diseases. With FDA approval, this could save over 2 million lives, eliminate immeasurable suffering… and rocket up from a tiny grubstake to as high as $52.5 billion. Click here for the video proof of this potential cure and to learn more about this opportunity.
More billionaires will certainly follow.
Carol Pepper, an advisor to posh family offices, says that cannabis stocks are the “next huge growth area,” and that she is advising her clients to go all-in on the industry.
She especially likes the potential for cannabis-based medicines.
At the Institute, we like it for medical use and beyond. As a recreational product, it can serve as an alternative to beer, wine, and liquor. It can also be a wellness and beauty product, being sold as a beverage, edible, skin cream, or pain patch.
As the industry grows, there will be even more ways to consume cannabis.
As I’ve mentioned, under normal conditions, only the super wealthy would have access to private investment opportunities. They have inside connections that always just give them a leg up on everyone else.
But now, everything is different thanks to a new law.
A Brand New Opportunity
Thanks to sweeping changes from the JOBS Act, retail investors can take advantage of some of the private investment opportunities previously only available to the very rich – people like those who organize private offices.
Prior to selling shares to the general public through an IPO or outright sale to another cannabis company, many private firms raise capital privately, from select individuals or investment firms.
That’s because, before the JOBS Act, companies primarily did this under Regulation D – which, for all intents and purposes, is only available to accredited investors.
But now, thanks to Regulation A+, companies can raise this capital from almost anyone.
Still, even knowing where to start for private placement deals is daunting.
Not only do you have to find private placement deals – you have to do a lot of work researching the company, its projections, and a ton of complicated due diligence that the average investor doesn’t have experience with.
That’s why the National Institute for Cannabis Investors is proud to be able to offer ordinary investors the opportunity to join the mega-rich in investing in private cannabis opportunities.
We’re not a family office that can offer you Beyoncé tickets or a lawyer to get your kid out of trouble, but we can introduce you to several companies raising private capital. This is an opportunity to become not just an angel investor, but an angel investor in the fastest-growing segment of the economy.
We do the due diligence to ensure that the opportunity has great potential, and then we introduce you to the company. We call this service Cannabis Venture Syndicate.
Because we only expect a few companies to survive our rigorous due diligence process, membership in Cannabis Venture Syndicate is strictly limited. Our editors have a pool on when it will fill up, and the betting is between one and two weeks.
We think this is one of the best ways for ordinary investors to take the next step in their cannabis investing journey.
Now, I have to warn you that there is risk in angel investing. This is not going to be for everyone.
We encourage you to take a look at our introductory video, to consider the risks and potential rewards of being an angel investor, and to decide whether Cannabis Venture Syndicate is right for you.
Thank you for being an important part of the National Institute for Cannabis Investors,
Executive Director, National Institute for Cannabis Investors
P.S. Recently, our team of pot stock analysts sent out an alert for a small company that just completed their long-awaited IPO. But if you missed the boat on this the first time around, you have a rare second chance to lock in a ground-floor opportunity in one of tomorrow’s biggest household names. This could easily become the next 1,000% winner – so I recommend you move fast. Click here to learn more.
