  • Duration: 3 – 10 years
  • Potential IRR: 15% to 20%
  • Fees: 1.5% management | 20% carry

Through the same London art connection that brought us Art Bundle I, which was oversubscribed by 25% and has returned 19% in three months, we have the opportunity to acquire a unique piece by legendary German/British artist Frank Auerbach.

What’s changed since last week:

I’m meeting with our new platform’s compliance team to push this ahead.

Upcoming Deals

South Island, New Zealand NRL Expansion

What’s the deal

We’re working with an organization looking to expand NRL rugby to New Zealand. They’re raising a small working capital round of $200k to $300k to finalize the bid (which already has wide support).

What’s changed since last week:

Stefan met with the crew in New Zealand this week.

We’ll get them in for a Q&A very soon.

SignalRank

What’s the deal

I love this one. SignalRank has produced an algorithm that picks Series B winners not by looking at the company itself but at the relative success of investors in their seed rounds (winners pick winners). They’re smashing traditional VC returns by outsourcing due diligence, running it through a scoring algorithm, and taking on micro-VC follow-on allocation. I’ll have something on this for you in early April.

What’s changed since last week:

No change

Agave Farmland

What’s the deal

After our trip to Mexico, there was significant interest in acquiring cash-flowing agave farmland. We may have found the right opportunity. There are ten hectares of prime roadside land available for around $1.1 million, which is a good price. There’s also room to build a distillery and accommodation for STRs. More to come on this.

What’s changed since last week:

We’ve got a half dozen folks express interest in this one. If you’d like to add your name to the list, you can do that ​here​.
