Investment Themes with Attractive Yields

Interest rates crashed with the 2008 financial crisis and have flatlined at historic lows.  Low yields and dividends hurt investors seeking current income.  Their only perceived options have been to chase higher yields by accepting greater credit risk or longer time horizons.  WindRock believes other solutions exist.

Brett Rentmeester of WindRock Wealth Management was recently interviewed by Gordon T. Long of the Financial Repression Authority.  Their conversation addressed three categories of interest:

  • Secured Private Lending – Why private pools of capital have formed to take advantage of lending in areas that the Too-Big-To-Fail banks are neglecting.
  • Farmland – How this inefficient mom-and-pop industry can pay investors strong rental income today with inflation protection for the future.
  • Unique Rental Real Estate – Why a growing demographic of Americans are choosing to rent instead of owning a home which is creating opportunities serving “Renters By Choice.”
