Sep 3, 2019

When raising money, make sure that you’re in full compliance to avoid jail-time. Don’t engage in illegal activity like Bernie Madoff to swindle investors and defraud them. 

Today, I’m talking to Mauricio Rauld, who is a syndication attorney who does my private placement memorandums (PPMs). Mauricio guides us through the process of syndication to stay out of the “po-po.” 

Topics on Today’s Episode:

  • Definition of a Security: Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other items
  • Raising Money: Selling securities with passive investors involved in deals 
  • Pieces of Syndication Puzzle: Mauricio is legal piece that lets you focus on underwriting, due diligence, and other worrisome tasks
  • Three Options: Register security or syndication with SEC; find exemption to registration; or consider it illegal
  • Build Relationships to Meet Needs: What kind of return do you want? Are you more interested in equity or debt? Are you looking for tax mitigation?
  • Bet on Corey, not Property: Submit a Letter of Intent (LOI), identify property, get it under contract, and perform due diligence 
  • PPM: Legal document that discloses material information and risks to investors
  • Raising Money Gets Easier: Know minimum amount to raise to get deal done
