How Davenport Laroche Helps You Invest in Shipping Containers
By Jacques Piccard, Managing Director of Davenport Laroche
Davenport Laroche is a boutique investment firm that is growing rapidly with their unique offering of managed shipping container investments. Investors who first encounter the company and their unique investing opportunities, always seem to respond with surprise. Every new or potential investor’s first question tends to be something along the lines of, “With a 12% fixed return, why isn’t everyone investing in shipping containers?” The reality is, in fact, that more and more investors are jumping in every day. Davenport Laroche is constantly evolving their firm in order to keep up with the demand.
How does container leasing work?
To best understand how investing with Davenport Laroche works, think of each shipping container as a rental property. The firm guides investors into purchasing their own quantity of shipping containers (depending on their financial investment level), and permits Davenport Laroche to manage the shipping container on their behalf – the same way a property manager would manage a rental home – . Once the containers are purchased, the investor will receive a full Deed of Sale documentation in their name, as the legal and rightful owner of all containers purchased. Containers are generally leased to major Fortune 500 companies and government organizations that are in constant need of containers for their large-scale construction, product movement or infrastructure projects.
What does Davenport Laroche do?
The business model involves partnering with large enterprises and government organizations to secure contracts to provide shipping containers for logistical needs – and, once a contract is secured, there is a limited time for investors to sign up and make their (financial) move. That’s why Davenport Laroche encourages every investor to stay in close contact with our investment team so that they can be notified as soon as the time is right to make their investment.
Shipping container demand is on the rise.
The demand for containers seems to be never ending – the global economy and emerging markets are continuing to grow and feed this demand. Davenport Laroche recently announced being a preferred partner to provide shipping containers to fuel construction of three new airports in Tibet – and it’s opportunities like these that keep the investment firm growing.
How does this compare to investing in cryptocurrencies or OTC stocks?
You can’t compare the two – that would be like comparing apples and oranges. Shipping container investing involves purchasing hard assets, and collecting a cash return every month. Unlike cryptocurrencies and OTC stocks which are wrought with scams, when you invest in shipping containers, your initial investment capital is preserved. Davenport Laroche advises all their investors to stay away from products that could be scammed on – their have been several recent public service announcements from government authorities outlining the scams of cryptocurrencies and “binary options,” and they have advised investors to stay away from such investments.
So what really makes Davenport Laroche so successful?
It’s all a very simple game of supply and demand, and of maintaining your spot as a producer in the market. At Davenport Laroche, we knew that when we made shipping container investing an opportunity for the public, the industry would see unprecedented growth; and it has.
