I have to admit I started saving and investing for my retirement late in life. For years it was something I put off for another day. Now I find myself struggling to find investments for retirement.
It would be interesting to know if I am the only one who is experiencing a difficult time. I am not sure if I am setting my expectations too high, or if I am looking in the wrong places. I expected things would be difficult, but meeting my criteria seems nearly impossible.
Suggestions from others, about where to find investments for retirement, are always welcome. But, whose recommendation can I trust? I am afraid that here are shysters, and financial predators around every corner.
Following the suggestion of a close friend have begun to research an appealing option from a company named Davenport Laroche. They are a container leasing and investment company from Hong Kong. The idea is that an investor purchases shipping containers and then leases them out for a monthly profit.
According to the company’s website, leasing containers is like renting an apartment.
“It is similar to the process of renting an apartment. Just think of it, you rent it out and receive the rent every month; deposited into your bank account. The only difference is: you don’t rent it to a family or a student; you rent it out to the world’s biggest companies.”
This opportunity sounds ideal for investors, like myself, who need to find investments for retirement. There is an acceptable amount of risk, and it earns a good income month after month. BUT, I would like to hear more from other investors who have invested with Davenport Laroche.
If you are investor with the company, or know someone who is, please ask them to share their experience with me. In particular, I would like to know if the returns are as favorable as reported on the company’s website.
