Coronavirus Fears — Invest in this "Safe Haven" Now

By Matthew Milner, on Wednesday, February 5, 2020

This is terrifying.

As we just learned, if the coronavirus stays on its current trajectory, more than 100 million people could be infected by the end of February.

Furthermore, the impact on China’s economy — and thus, economies around the world — could be dire.

But in the midst of this, a safe haven for investors continues to shine: the private markets.

Year after year, decade after decade, regardless of what’s happening around the world, the private market continues to help turn small investments of just $500 or $1,000 into millions.

The “smart money” has already discovered this blueprint for profits.

And 2020 is the year that you should discover it, too.

Everyone Is Jumping In

Historically, only venture capitalists (“VCs”) invested in the private markets.

These professional investors would invest in early-stage tech companies like Oracle or Biogen years before they went public… and then cash out for millions (or billions) when these startups IPO’d or were acquired.

But as the market-beating returns from early-stage investing became widely evident, other types of investors started to jump in, too.

For example:

  • Mutual fund giant Fidelity (which traditionally only invested in public companies listed on the stock market) started investing in private startups like Pinterest.
  • Tiger Global, one of the most prominent hedge funds in the world, pulled back on its stock market investments so it could allocate more capital to the private markets. According to The Financial Times, it’s now invested in about 230 startups including Warby Parker, and (before they went public) Peloton and Spotify.
  • The world’s most successful athletes and entertainers are jumping in, too. For example, U2's front man Bono invested in Facebook when it was still a tiny startup. Ashton Kutcher invested in Airbnb, Spotify, and Uber just when they were getting started. And Jay-Z invested in stock-trading startup Robinhood.

Maximize Your Returns with Minimal Investment

Perhaps surprisingly, it doesn’t take much capital to get started.

For individual investors like you, just a few hundred dollars here and there could turn into a seven-figure nest egg.

The “secret” here is remarkably simple: Historically, early-stage private investing has been the single-most profitable long-term asset class.

On average, for the past 20 years, these investments have returned roughly 55% per year. And at 55% per year, in just 20 years, you could turn a $250 investment into more than $1.6 million.

So even if you took just a tiny piece of your nest egg and put it into the private markets, you could multiply your total returns many times over.

Now It’s Your Turn

For the past 85 years or so, the U.S. government legally prohibited all but the wealthiest citizens from investing in startups.

But recently, because of a new set of laws called The JOBS Act, now anyone can invest in these young, private companies — and anyone can put themselves in position to make millions.

This is why, about six years ago, Wayne and I launched Crowdability: our mission is to help individual investors like you make sense of (and profit from) this newly available market.
