Being a member of the Angel Business Club is fun, exciting and potentially very financially rewarding. Every month you receive FREE SHARES in carefully selected start up businesses that have the potential to become tomorrow's corporate superstars. Any one (or more) of these investments could end up making your fortune.

There are 5 ways you can make money with the Angel Business Club:

1) Takeover Offer

As a member of the Angle Business Club, you receive and own real shares in small privately owned businesses. If a company you own shares in gets taken over by a big competitor, you stand to receive a substantial profit. A takeover will normally result in a big cash payout for shareholders. Sometimes a takeover may take the form of a share swap where you end up with shares in the larger business. Your shares in the new company would then normally be available to be sold for cash. Either way, a takeover is usually great news and can give big profits for the angel investor.

2) Flotation (IPO's)

A successful small business may decide it wants to grow it's business even faster by raising money on a public stock market. This is called an "Initial Public Offering" (IPO). When a company issues new shares to the public via a stock market such as the London Stock Exchange or the American Nasdaq, the value of the company will very often increase in value as the shares are generally offered at an initial discount to attract new investors. A flotation can very often be a great opportunity to sell shares for a good profit.

3) Dividend payouts

When a business grows and starts to make a profit, it can choose reinvest those profits into further developing sales and increasing the value of the company or it can choose to pay out some of those profits as cash dividends to it's shareholders. Most businesses the Angel Business Club invests in are not dividend paying companies as they are generally early stage businesses that are less likely to make profits until later. However, there are the exceptions. For example, Britannia's Gold is very much a dividend focused opportunity. Dividends are usually paid once or twice a year, depending on the company. These would be paid to direct to shareholders e-wallets (cash account) at the Angel Business Club.

4) Selling your shares privately

As a business makes more sales, the overall value of that business (and hence the value of the shares) will also grow. One of the features of the Angel Business Club is the ability for members to trade their shares with other members. If you feel  a company in which you own shares is unlikely to grow in value in the near term or if you simply want to cash in some of your shares, you can sell your shares in the internal exchange. There can be a whole host of reasons a member might want to buy or sell shares. The internal exchange allows members to buy and sell shares with other members, without paying any commission fees. The exchange is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What is Angel Investing?

Investing in private companies – before they reach the public markets – can be one of the most lucrative investment strategies in the world.

There are famous examples of private investors and venture capital (VC) firms making a fortune with early stage companies. Private investors in Uber, for instance, turned $30,000 into $149 million… $50,000 into $248 million… or even $510,000 into $2.5 billion

So yes, investing in private deals can be very, very lucrative.

However, until now it has been reserved for the ultra-wealthy and the super connected. It’s a sort of a dark art. It involves high-risk decisions every time an investment is made or about to be made. And angel investors have to deal with imperfect and incomplete information. So let me give you Three Simple Rules to become an Angel Investor and you’ll have a better understanding of why being a member of the Angel Business Club is a smart move.

Rule One: Understand the Fundamentals

The first rule seems obvious. But you would be surprised how many angels get stuck right away because they can’t assess the value of the technology or the market opportunity. Does the technology make sense? Is there a clear vertical (i.e., a narrow market where the tech can flourish) for this tech to be deployed in? Is the company doing something entirely new and unique? Or is it just moderately better than what already exists in the market today?

For instance, ABC invested in Smart Trade APP (click here). Without getting into the specifics, Smart Trade has radically transformed how transactions are made with their Pay by Bank app. It’s a brand-new technology, not a small upgrade of an existing system. 

Understanding the core technology and the market opportunity is essential before making any investment as an angel investor. 

Investors who can’t answer these questions correctly end up making bad investment decisions over and over. They lose money. They are gambling rather than making informed investment decisions. Being a member of The Angel Business Club takes the guesswork out of the equation and stacks the odds in your favour.

Rule Two: Practice Patience 

Investing in private companies is very different than investing in public markets. 

Investors can purchase shares in public companies one day and resell them immediately, if they want. 

With private investments, that’s not an option… Private investments, for the most part, are illiquid. 

Private investors generally must wait for what’s known as an “exit”, or a “liquidity event”, to take money off the table. Typically, an exit means the private company is either acquired by a third party or goes public, allowing private investors to sell their shares in the public markets. 

An angel investor might be sitting on profits as high as 250,000%. But if the company never exits, guess what? All those profits remain just paper-profits. Unless of course, they are members with The Angel Business Club in which case they have the option to sell shares whenever they want (as long as there are buyers) via the internal stock exchange.

If you want to become an angel investor using your own investment criteria, you’re going to have to be patient and wait for these exits. Very patient. 

What is usually said in the Private Equity industry is that a first major exit will likely happen within five to eight years from the founding of the business although sometimes it can happen sooner, depending on how fast the business grows and how much appetite there is from the founders to exit with a quick profit.

Do you have the emotional fortitude to wait that long for a return? If you want to be an angel investor, you’ll have to be prepared, that in order to stand the chance of the huge gains that are possible, you will need to cultivate patience and be completely comfortable with the prospect that there will also be some businesses that fail.

Rule Three: Let the Numbers Work for You

Rule three is something I recommend to all investors, even when investing in public companies. You need to build a basket of early stage companies in which all have great investment return potential. In other words, you need to let the numbers work for you.

It may surprise you to know that as many as 75% of VC-backed companies never return money to early investors. What that implies is that most investments made by venture capitalists actually fail. 

An important rule to being successful as a private investor is to cultivate a large basket of private deals and let the law of the big numbers work for you. 

Many of the investments will fail completely. Some might return your money with a modest profit. And a small percentage can go on to deliver life-changing returns. It’s these “jackpot” investments that make up for all your losses and then some. 

That’s why a large basket is so important. While I may have an idea about which companies are going to deliver extraordinary returns, in fact, there is really no way to tell for sure which ones will be successful.

I hope you understand now how committed you need to be to invest in this asset class on your own.

Unless you are well-connected and have a very large amount of capital to deploy, breaking into the private investing space is difficult… perhaps even impossible for some. This has been one of the most unfair dynamics in the investment world for the past decade.

On the other hand, if you can see the benefits the Angel Business Club provides for you, carefully selecting these early stage companies, curating, nurturing them and preparing the exit for you… then join the Club today.
