The financial industry, while full of opportunity is also a difficult area to operate in. Organizations spend years developing strategies for investors in order to reduce the amount of risk, and while new opportunities arise once in a while, most investors hesitate to offer their trust. On the other hand, many people tend to jump on new trends and find shortcuts that promise them financial prosperity, giving a platform to many scams.
Matt Badiali however, introduced a new investment program that helps U.S. investors or normal citizens grow their capital. Badiali is a geologist, having a master’s degree in earth science. During his studies he traveled the world and inspected oil fields and coal mines, and during the stock market crash of 2008 he invested in energy stocks, which in the span of 2 years earned him his fortune. He ended up selling the stocks, earning a profit of 4,400 percent.
Most people save for retirement by putting aside money from their monthly paychecks into a savings account, but while some people can save enough money for their retirement years, in a lot of cases their 401(k) accounts aren’t enough. Mr. Badiali’s program could offer anyone financial stability and prosperity, hence the name Freedom Checks.
Freedom Checks simply put, provide capital gain from investments. The returns they offer come from investments in MLPs (master limited partnership), as opposed to the usual standard stock options. Freedom Checks are legal, as they rely on Internal Revenue Code. The rules in the U.S. tax code provide MLPs with the freedom to let investors have tax advantages that would result from a limited partnership, while enjoying the benefits of company that is publicly traded.
While Badiali’s presentation of Freedom Checks made people both anxious to try it and wary of it being a potential scam, thorough research needs to be done before any investment is made. Anyone can invest as little as $10, the program offering high rate of return. However, investments should also be calculated, as Freedom Checks are not a ‘get rich quick‘ scheme, the strategy requiring a bit of dedication from potential investors.
