  5. 5. MYTHS ABOUT PRIVATE EQUITY • 1. Money is made only in the PUBLIC markets. • FACTS: Regular investors are investing in PE deals everyday. 19,400 PE deals and 17,600 PE investors –See ) • 2. PE is only for the rich. • FACTS: Over the last few years, the S.E.C. (Securities and Exchange Commission) has made it easier for retail and non-accredited investors to participate in the markets. (See under “press releases” also Groundfloor, EnrichHER, etc.) • 3. It’s too complicated to get started. • FACTS: It’s not that hard if you know WHERE to look—there are private investment clubs popping up everywhere. However, that’s the reason for this iclub initiative. All there is a simple request form. We have to ask about AI status for regulatory reasons but NOT a barrier; we ask about industries for non- presenting companies. (See iclub webpage)KAAG * WWW.KAAG.CO * (404) 919-0660
  6. 6. WHY ICLUB? • The Problem: Some stats • Solution: Access to PIOs (Democratize the access) through group economics KAAG * WWW.KAAG.CO * (404) 919-0660
  7. 7. MY EXPERIENCE • GMIC (Georgia Minority Investment Collaborative, Inc.) • Other ICs I have been involved with • PIO presentation - * KAAG * WWW.KAAG.CO * (404) 919-0660
  8. 8. A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER… • Private markets are riskier- Lack of transparency in private vs. public markets • This is not an investment firm/club- We are not pooling your funds. You solely make the decision to invest or not. • Pay attention to your email for PIOs---there are deadlines and may be follow up action items- Check spam and junk and add my email. • Due Diligence is YOUR TOTAL responsibility!- We do very baseline due diligence that equates to making sure company exists and has a plan that can be referenced. • NOTE Conflicts of Interest- KAAG is a registered IA firm so private consultations are available EXCEPT for when my clients present (At that time, no charge for PIO and additional disclosure and consent required.)
