WCPD Inc. spread some holiday cheer last month when it sponsored an exclusive, Tiger 21 Christmas party to promote its investment fund and the Grand Isle Resort & Spa.
On December 15, more than 50 guests, representing both Tiger 21 chapters in Miami, descended on a stunning mansion on Miami Beach. Tiger 21, the peer-to-peer learning network of high-net-worth investors, has been called the most powerful networking group in the world by Forbes magazine.
The party, spread out over a three-story deck with panoramic views of the beach and downtown Miami, served up a traditional holiday meal and decor with Bahamian accents.
Grand Isle Resort & Spa, located in Exuma, Bahamas, had the privilege of displaying full-sized posters of the property and the surrounding island.
Patricia Clark, the head of All Five Senses Event, personally took care of every detail for both the owner of the home and Peter Nicholson, the President of WCPD Inc. and GIV Bahamas Inc.
Clark said that slipping in Bahamian drinks and food into an otherwise traditional menu, along with the property’s island-like feel, made it an ideal home to feature Grand Isle.
“There is a boat lunch that can receive guests and the whole place is surrounded by palm trees. It is a lovely and quite island-feeling home,” she explained. “So it really is an appropriate venue.”
As part of the festivities, Grand Isle also gave away a free week at the resort to one of the lucky party guests.
“I want to thank our hosts for the event for opening their doors to our company,” said Nicholson. “We love sharing Grand Isle and Exuma with our peers, and this was a fantastic opportunity.”
While Exuma was the main focus and theme of the party, Nicholson also took the time to discuss the Delbrook Resource Opportunities Fund with other Tiger 21 members.
The fund purchases resource stock at a significant discount to the public stock markets, around 30%, through WCPD Inc.’s flow-through offerings. For Canadians, flow-through shares enable donors to make the most tax efficient donations and/or positive investment returns. The structure is very popular for high-net-worth individuals and corporations.
Delbrook investors profit from the performance of discounted stock managed by Delbrook manager, Matthew Zabloski. From December 16, 2013 to December 16, 2014, the Delbook Resource Opportunities Fund has produced a average return of positive 6%, and including the value of Warrants, the Net Asset Value (NAV) is valued up to positive 36% for the year. Compare that positive return to negative 25% for the TSX Venture Index and over negative 30% returns for Barrick Gold and Teck Resources, two of the largest mining stocks in the world.
The global and Canadian resource market had a terrible 2014 – but not Delbrook. The key to its success is its 30% positive head start, creating from the 30% discount to the public stock prices. This is an excellent buying opportunity while prices are low.
