For many years, people would walk up to Marlo Richardson for investment advice and how to become a player in the real estate sector; some even asked her to mentor them. These events inspired her to launch a hedge fund called Business Bullish Investments. Not only that, Richardson’s own extensive experience as an entrepreneur and real estate investor also inspired her to create the fund.
The serial entrepreneur launched the firm under the parent company, Business Bullish. Her company allows large organizations and individuals to invest in a wide variety of projects, particularly in real estate, while they get ownership of their investment in return. The firm currently has investment opportunities available in Los Angeles County.
“Being involved in businesses and real estate ventures, I’ve had people ask me to mentor them or to show them how they can invest. I’ve also had people tell me that they can’t afford it,” she said in a press release. “I want to make it affordable. Lack of knowledge and access is the reason the wealth gap is so large between those that have and those that don’t. One way that investing becomes affordable is by pooling money together.”
According to Richardson, the investment fund places attention on persons who are not accredited investors. In other words, persons who do not have a net worth of over $1 million; this excludes primary residence and an individual income of over $200,000 or $300,000 with a spouse.
“One of the key components to investing with Business Bullish Investments is our backend technology that allows investors to make online contributions, receive distributions, view videos and photos of assets, and share documents,” the statement noted.
Richardson says she hopes people who partner with her firm will learn how to invest, make enough money, create opportunities for themselves, and build generational wealth.
Aside from her hedge fund, Richardson has hospitality experience, which guided her venture into the wine industry. She is the founder of Braymar Wines, a brand that is sold in several restaurants in the larger Los Angeles metro area – with plans to sell at retail outlets soon. Her wine has received the endorsement of celebrities like Common and Snoop Dogg, according to cuisinenoirmag.
