The investment world got the surprise of a lifetime this year.
You see, at the end of each year, a global analytics firm called Preqin compiles data on the performance of more than 10,000 hedge funds.
Its goal is to identify the top-performing fund for the year, and then determine why it was the top performer — i.e., did it invest in tech companies, the banking sector, oil, etc.?
Other investors then use this analysis to figure out the highest-potential sectors to invest in over the coming year.
Usually, the top performer is a well-recognized fund that’s placed bets on a well-recognized sector — but not this year…
This year, Preqin’s results came as a total shock:
“The world’s best-performing hedge fund” was a tiny fund in Australia called Tribeca Global.
Today we’ll show you exactly how Tribeca achieved this success…
And then we’ll reveal why it’s so important to investors like you.
Explosive Gains from a Single Sector
So, how did this tiny fund from Australia manage to outperform more than 10,000 other funds from across the world?
As Bloomberg recently reported, Tribeca Global became “the world’s best-performing hedge fund” last year by making big bets on a single sector:
By investing in high-growth pot stocks, and by piggy-backing off the rapid legalization of marijuana across North America, Tribeca was able to earn an astounding 145% in a single year.
But here’s the thing: even though those returns are very high, a different group of pot investors enjoyed far higher returns…
In fact, it's estimated that they're earning 40x to 50x more than pot stock investors.
What’s their secret?
Let me show you — and then I’ll give you a chance to claim your share of the profits.
Get in Before the IPO
You may have already guessed it, but the investors I’m referring to aren’t investing in public pot stocks.
Instead, they’re putting their money into private pot start-ups.
Take Peter Thiel, for example…
Thiel is a billionaire investor from Silicon Valley.
He was the founder of PayPal, the first investor in Facebook, and he also happens to be one of Donald Trump’s closest allies and advisors.
Well, Thiel recently led a $75 million investment into a private marijuana start-up called Privateer Holdings.
Why? Because he knows that by getting in when these companies are still private, he can virtually lock in his gains when the company goes IPO — no matter what the stock does afterwards!
And he’s not the only investor who’s caught onto this winning strategy — which explains why we’re seeing such a dramatic uptick in marijuana-related start-up investing.
For example, in 2013, just $13 million was placed into seven marijuana start-ups...
But fast-forward to 2016 — and that number exploded to $205 million across 96 deals.
Lock in Your Gains
There’s a simple reason why all the “smart money” is pouring into early-stage marijuana start-ups right now:
These investors know that by getting in on the ground floor — by getting in when these companies’ shares are still cheap — they can virtually lock in their profits, no matter what the company’s stock does after it goes public.
To show you what I mean, just look at some of the examples Matt showed you yesterday:
Take CV Sciences (CVSI), for example…
This stock exploded in value, going from $2 per share to $147 in just two years. That’s 73.5x your money.
But then the stock collapsed… today it trades at about $0.24 per share.
If you’d invested at the IPO and held on, you’d be looking at a 90% loss right now.
But if you’d invested in CVSI when it was still private, you’d be sitting on a gain of 480%.
And if you’d sold your private shares when the stock was at its peak, you could have earned 2,940x your money!
That’s like turning $500 into $1.47 million — with one investment.
And that is why some of the smartest, most well-informed money in the world has gotten serious about investing in marijuana start-ups…
And today, you have the chance to do the same…
Your Chance to Earn Life-Changing Profits
Yesterday you learned about an exciting event that takes place next week…
Next Wednesday, November 15th at 7:00 PM Eastern, Matt and I will be hosting a special online presentation…
We’ll be showing you how to get access to a revolutionary new marijuana company —before it goes IPO.
We’ll explain, in great detail, why we believe this start-up could quickly grow into a multi-million dollar — or even, multi-billion dollar — business…
And hand early investors like you anywhere from 1,306% to 16,941% in profits.
