Safety in Mind
A Safety First Philosphy
deeproot® designs, administers, and manages alternative private equity and debenture funds for investors. We target a lower risk profile by using a proprietary, innovative allocation blend of collateralized assets. In fact, our ‘two-of-a-kind’ fund design can’t be found anywhere else in the world. The end result defines us: solid alternative investment funds that are designed to keep pace with or outperform traditional investments without taking on unnecessary, unpredictable risk.
Does your advisor or broker offer deeproot® as an option for your portfolio? If not...why not?
We have designed an investment structure never before created.
While investment funds have been around for many years, the rise in popularity of funds here in the United States in the last forty years was driven by an effort to simplify investment strategies and minimize risk. By using a pool of investments, a fund can diversify asset classes using allocation strategies which minimizes the risk of losses or negative fluctuations in any one investment, sector, industry, or asset class.
With the explosion of funds, there has also been an explosion of allocation strategies. With thousands of funds available today, an investor has an overwhelming selection to choose from to match any investment objective: from growth to income, from stocks to bonds to real estate to precious metals, from domestic to international, from aggressive growth to lower risk money market funds.
A fund is founded on three main pillars. First, the allocation philosophy (the fund’s mission statement) will determine the type, quality, and quantity of investments that will make up the fund. Second, of paramount importance is the competence and diligence of the fund manager to adhere to the allocation philosophy by selecting appropriate investments in the right allocations. And last, the end result to the investor must be unique and competitive: predictable positive returns, low fees, exceptional service, true diversification, and unparalleled results.
We believe that the vast majority of funds fail to adhere to all three pillars. Simply put: mixing up the same asset classes ten thousand different ways still results in the same investment profile.
- Be bold, but simple, by adhering to fund types which complement the overall allocation philosophy, such as equity structures, accredited and non-accredited variations, and fixed rate – fixed term & aggressive growth models
- Stay away from the unpredictable broader stock and bond market
- Invest in assets that are themselves collateralized or backed by corporate or governmental entities
- Adhere to an allocation structure that rewards investors with competitive returns while avoiding stock market or interest rate risks
By using alternative investments, as compared to the stale, repackaged stocks or bonds in nearly all other investment funds, deeproot® has re-innovated the traditional investment fund and mutual fund models. Our two-of-a-kind fund portfolio provides all three possible investment options (growth, income, and aggressive growth) in a private equity design, so investors get a stake in the action. In fact you won’t be able to find anything like our private equity funds anywhere in the world. That’s how we spell innovation at deeproot®!
