BPN was founded with the mission to provide investment vehicles that put all investors on equal standing. We have decades of collective experience in high-stakes investing with high-net-worth individuals and funds, but we ourselves started from the ground up. As we were introduced to the kinds of opportunities available to the wealthy, we could see the stark difference between the kinds of returns billionaires get on their investments versus the general public who can only afford to put in a few thousand dollars in savings. On the converse side, we saw great businesses struggling to expand because of lack of capital or the high costs of capital that they could attain from commercial banking institutions.
For us, this wasn’t just an injustice—it was a chokehold on the economy. Capital investments are the lifeblood of medium businesses, and small and medium businesses are the greatest source of new jobs in any economy. Growing one’s wealth is the foundation of another pillar of the economy, giving people the opportunity to educate themselves and their children, retire comfortably, and make investments in even more of the businesses that make our economy grow.
