The goal of the Brickken team is to bring you great investment opportunities. However, all investments carry risks. The list below shows typical risks you assume as an investor. The list is not exhaustive and other risks may arise. Each investment opportunity will have a white paper associated that will cover the opportunity’s associated risks. Please make sure you read each white paper carefully.
Typical investment risks:
DEFAULT RISK: an investment in a company can result in the loss of 100% of the capital if the company goes bankrupt.
LIQUIDITY RISK: A partner wishing to sell his tokens may not find a buyer.
ECONMIC RISK: the fluctuation of the economic cycle can be harmful to a company’s activity. For instance, if there is an economic recession, certain sectors of the economy may suffer more than others.
UNEXPECTED EVENTS: also known as “black swans” in financial jargon. These are events that are unforeseen and that have massive negative implications. For instance, the COVID-19 pandemic brought economic havoc to many sectors. One example is the air industry that saw global flight travelling entirely halted for many months.
CASH RISK: The available cash could be insufficient to meet the commitments.
RENTAL RISK: in the case of investments in real estate, an extended vacancy of one or more lots could result in a reduction of the return on the investment as distributions are delayed.
WORK RISK: in the case of investments in real estate, should there be a need to take unexpected construction works, these costs would have to be assumed by the property’s cash flows, reducing the return on the investment.
INSURANCE RISK: also in the case of investments in real estate, the insurance taken out could not fully cover damage to the property.
PROPERTY INTEGRITY RISK: The total or partial destruction of the building could cause a loss of the investment.
