Back the future, not the past
Europe and America are mired in debt, both personal and governmental, and the reaction of many Western governments to the recent recession has been to pile on yet more debt. But trying to replace lost private spending with public is a mistake as public spending is non productive. In fact, it actually damages the economy by wasting and misallocating capital that could otherwise be invested properly to increase real earnings. You don't get a sinking boat to float by pouring more water into it!
However, it's not our role to ridicule the incompetence of politicians, but to provide our clients with opportunities to profit.
We still think there are some great opportunities in the "West", particularly in America, where the interference of Government has thrown up some highly profitable dislocations. Such as subsidising Banks to enable them to write of mortgages and unload cheap property (see American section on this site).
But, overall, the fundamentals look distinctly uninspiring. Taxes are being raised to try and pay for this increasing debt and growing army of government employees and benefit takers. And more and more regulations are raising the cost of doing business, putting a ball and chain around the ankles of private business. Toss in a series of hugely expensive military campaigns and it all looks unsustainable.
It is becoming plainer by the day that it makes a lot of sense to invest where such problems are minimal. And thankfully, there are still plenty of places on the planet that are not suffering the hubris of the West. Places where the young shoots of investment will grow quickly.
Africa – Time to invest
For the uninformed, Africa is still seen as the "Dark continent". A place of civil wars and chronic governmental corruption. Whilst there still are areas to avoid, there are many parts that are doing very well and are in the process of gaining wider recognition. In other words, just at the stage when the risk-reward balance is right and it's time to invest.
Hanroc has identified a top investment location that provides a safe but dynamic property investment. Whilst our company definition is "Pioneering Developments overseas", that does not imply risky investments. It means locating investment in areas that are on the cusp of wider recognition and have sound economic fundamentals. Places that are not being crushed by massive debt and overbearing government.
Details will be released in summer 2010, but suffice to say that once investors look at the facts we think they will be impressed. Overall economic growth in the area is very high, dwarfing the sickly figures in Europe and America.
The development will be pure commercial, offering a guaranteed return of 10%, with actual return estimated at 15% pa. For those looking to boost their (Sipps) Self Invested Personal Pensions it could be ideal and we will be placing the product with IFAs (Independent Financial advisers) in UK. For the general investor, it offers diversification of portfolio, placing assets in a safe area of high genuine growth.
It is likely the project will sell out to our existing network of investors, but as we are always looking to bring new investors on board you can register to receive details before public release. Just fill in your details below.
