“Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.” – Warren Buffett
“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” – Warren Buffett
You can see that Warren Buffett captures the essence of this approach by becoming one of the most successful investors in the world.
Simple yet effective. That’s why I love how elite investors like Warren Buffett think, and these lessons that I learned from them permeates across the Vado Private culture.
Staying rational and disciplined by adhering to our risk management framework that includes assessment, ongoing borrower due diligence, and monitoring of private lending transactions.
Private financing has become a reliable way for high-wealth, elite investors, families, and institutions to generate income from their portfolios.
Wealth is created mindfully and patiently with a long term view, that is why our real estate private lenders remain loyal to us from inception because private lending is just as much about the borrowers and investors as it is about the asset.
We enjoy developing a history of trust and experience like all good investors would.
RBA Cash rates are now at historic lows.
How will this affect private lending at Vado Private?
Diminishing returns on cash in banks for investors now make private lending an even more attractive asset class, particularly as we continue to remain firm on borrower rates.
Why? Because we believe the value proposition for investors is so compelling.
Healthy returns get us noticed, but it is our ability to perform that secures our future.
Mitigating risk and having the courage to say no is a hallmark of our success.
You see, I consider myself a risk manager and my mandate is capital preservation for my investors.
Remember this, Warren Buffett started with $100 and turned it into $30 billion through diligence, mindfulness and was extremely discerning with how he invested.
We stay resolute to our guiding principles of:
- Knowledge and experience
- Capital preservation
In the last 36 months, Vado Private has circulated more than $150 Million into the private lending market across 53 transactions.
