Use Crowdfunding to Find High Yields & ROI

Use Crowdfunding to Find High Yields & ROI

By Mark Robertson CrowdFundBeat  Sr. Contributing Editor. President at CrowdDD, LLC, Currently, BankRate reports the best one-year bank CDs rates are 1.25%. The U.S. inflation calculator says that the inflation rate for the year of 2014 was 1.6%. This means leaving money in one-year bank CDs for 2014, caused investors to lose value because the reduced purchasing power of those dollars exceeded the bank interest paid on bank CDs.

Real Estate Crowdfunding Platforms Fees – Can Kill Your Return!

By Mark Robertson CrowdFundBeat  Sr. Contributing Editor. President at CrowdDD, LLC, Fees reduce investment returns so significantly that the SEC issued a bulletin-warning alert about the long-term effect of fees on investment portfolios. In the SEC bulletin, they compared the effect of fees on a $100,000 investment for a twenty-year period. Even when investments are for shorter periods, one can assume the money made will be re-invested, so a twenty-year time horizon is a good way to look at the long-term effect of fees on investment portfolio returns.
