The investment activity of Club 100 Plus is concentrated mainly in three sectors: startup companies which are high risk; real estate investments, with most of them made to date in the U.S.; and infrastructure investments, which are long-term investments.
An investment in startup companies is high risk; therefore, members participating in such investments must bear in mind that some of them will be written off, according to the generally accepted statistic that one startup out of 10 succeeds. According to studies conducted both in Israel and the U.S., the average time it takes for a successful startup to exit is 9 years.
Investments of this type are rigorously screened, with the chief criteria for selecting a startup company being: successful business experience of the leadership team, the size of the funding round and the existence of a lead investor with a significant investment.
For investments in the sector.
Real Estate investments
To To date, the Club has made direct real estate investments only in the U.S. The Club works with several entrepreneurs who have passed the Club's stringent screening in terms of experience and credibility, scope of activity in the U.S., and projects with returns in line with the Club's expectations. So far, 110 exits with high returns have been made, most of them following a holding period of 2-3 years.
The major criteria that must be met by real estate entrepreneurs include: a proven track record and experience, the entrepreneur's participation in equity, and double digit returns for the investor. The Club's preferred investment is in residential complexes. With the exception of one investment in a Miami office building, all the investments have been in residential real estate. The Club has not invested in commercial real estate.
The Club's two major investments in the sector have been in IIF 2 and IIF 4. What typifies these investments is long-term investment (8-10 years) with regular income throughout the investment period generated by income-producing properties and fund exits.
These investments are very low risk and offer double-digit annual returns.
