TYPES OF INVESTMENTS
Early Stage Capital
In our pursuit of quality investment opportunities, we invest our time, our resources and our capital in targeted ideas, and projects long before being offered to our private Partners. Like in almost all investments, reward is tied to risk. Early staged seed capital is critical to securing most investments. This type of investing can be rewarded with substantial financial gains. However, that potential financial reward also correlates with the awareness it comes with much higher risks.
Many Eckard investors and long-term Partners enjoy the front lines of value creation and participate in seed capital ideas. Our Partners appreciate the early process of research, development, and implementation. This type of investing attracts investors seeking the entitlement phase of asset development, and retain high expectations of significant and in many cases higher lifts in asset values.
Ownership & Equity
Eckard establishes special purpose investment vehicles that allow investing Partners to acquire and participate directly in ventures and assets. Many of our affluent Partners enjoy the flow-through benefits of direct ownership via LLCs, and Partnerships. These direct equity opportunities put the investors in position for being aligned with the company’s successes, growing opportunities and exit valuations.
Equity investing with our firm is "in it to win it" approach. This type of investing level varies at times based upon investment increments, risk tolerance and timing of investment maturity. It is not for everyone and requires a partner to understand they are in the asset for the long haul, rather than a short buy and hold mentality. Equity investing provides a result, good or bad, directly tied to the performance of the underlying asset or project.
