Prana is Sanskrit for breath, life force, or vital principle.
BLACK is self-explanatory.
Black Prana Investment Partnership (BPIP) is focused on economic enrichment by educating and enhancing financial literacy throughout the black community.
BPIP offers a diverse portfolio, featuring black-owned companies, health-based companies, international investments, currencies, futures, IPOs, LEAPs, and speculative investments.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of joining BPIP is education. When several investors come together to share ideas and information, there is often a synergistic effect, where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. Each member of the investment partnership can add value that can be shared with all of the other members.
BPIP offers low buy-ins and a $60 annual operating fee.
Contribute as little a $25 up to $250 monthly, it's up to you.
You may withdraw your assets at any time, but early withdrawal fees may apply.
This a long-term partnership, meeting online once monthly.
An investment partnership, also known as an investment club, is a group of people who invest together.
A club is usually operated as a type of business called a partnership, or a type of business taxed like a partnership called an LLC. Because of this, investment clubs are also referred to as investment partnerships.
Many different types of people get involved in investing in groups. Some are ordinary folks who want to learn to invest on their own and have learned that investing doesn't have to be a solitary activity. Others are active professional traders. Like almost anything in life, there are a lot of advantages to teaming up with others.
You do not need a lot of money to start an investment partnership. Many begin with only small initial contributions from each member, as little as $25 -$100 a month. But over time it adds up. Investment partnerships in total control hundreds of millions of dollars in assets.
A group of people who invest together can even grow into a sophisticated investment business which would be regulated by The Securities and Exchange Commission. You can find their definition of an investment partnership/club at their website, www.sec.gov.
Tens of thousands of investment partnerships have been started in the U.S. by people just like us!
Some do it with family members, colleagues from work, friends from a bar, a church, a civic group, or old school pals. This partnership focuses on the black community!
Some partnerships are all women or all men. Others have a mixture of sexes and ages. Some partnerships meet in person, others meet online. Most partnerships meet monthly, but some meet every week, and others may only meet every quarter or even once a year. Partnerships start for a variety of reasons. If you're interested in investing, it can be a fun social activity to try your hand with a group of friends.
The most successful partnerships are those that realize that becoming successful at investing is a learning process that will require a long term, ongoing commitment. Undertaking the process with friends that have a common interest makes the journey fun. Committing to focusing on investing at least monthly at a partnership meeting will give you the structure to keep you going for the long haul.
There are a million reasons to start an investment partnership.
Some people do it with their children or grandchildren so that they learn about saving and investing. Others want to learn to invest but don't want to put large amounts of their resources at risk. Pooling small amounts with others in a group focused on education allows you to do this.
Of course, even experienced investors find that having a way to discuss their ideas with others helps them make better decisions. It reduces the stress of making investment decisions and helps them focus.
You will find people in your group and the community are connected to an unlimited variety of businesses and industries. This can lead to discussions that might give you further insight into ideas for new investments.
Group discussions can give you a way to expand on and investigate some of your ideas further. Many investment partnership members use their partnership activities to develop and work through ideas which they then apply to their portfolio management.
One thing's for sure. You never really learn to invest until you try it. A partnership lets you try your hand in one of the most cost-effective ways available.
It doesn't matter whether you're a Wall Street shark or you still hold a passbook savings account; pooling wisdom and resources gives your portfolio more power. Many people find that the payoff is big.
Most importantly, people join investment partnerships because it's fun. You're getting together with a group of friends once a month! It's what keeps you committed for the long haul which is an important part of being successful as an investor.
