 The Emporium Fund, Ltd. (the “Fund”) is a newly organized closed-end, diversified investment company (or non-recognized unregulated collective investment scheme under UK law) designed to serve as the optimum mechanism to take maximum advantage of the opportunities that currently exist in the precious metals, defaulted debt and venture capital markets (business/real estate opportunities). The Fund is unique in that it may be an active participant in the management and operation of some or all of the investments that it makes.

Justice Is Our Priority

The primary focus of the Fund will be to rectify injustices. In the Defaulted Debt Sector the Fund will assist holders of certain defaulted or distressed debts to collect upon those debts or monetize their claim values to recover as much value as possible. 

In the Venture Capital Sector the Fund will help level the playing field when new, small, companies, have to compete with large corporate conglomerates. This will be done through the use of a consortium structure that will eventually link the collective strength of hundreds of companies.

The Precious Metals Sector creates a safe haven from all of the economic madness going on in the world while paving the way for the creation of a new gold backed crypto-currency.

Primary Investment Areas

Distressed/Defaulted Debts

This sector will use a hands-on approach to investing initially in German defaulted debt opportunities. The primary focus of this sector will be on opportunities where debt instruments or claims can be acquired at steeply discounted prices and these debts/claims can potentially be (1) swapped for equity (debt/equity swaps), (2) traded directly or indirectly for precious metals, (3) securitized to create interest rate arbitrage opportunities, (4) resold at substantial profits after undergoing asset enhancement procedures, or (5) collected upon from their issuers either with or without litigation. This sector may also invest in distressed farmland, water rights, mining claims and patent claims. This sector will specifically include defaulted gold backed debt instruments issued by German issuers circa 1924-1930 that still represent valid legal obligations of the original issuers, the German Government itself and potentially the U.S. Government. The German Gold Bonds  that are being used to seed this Fund have a combined “legal claim value” of at least $4 billion ($20m per bond). The bonds are being added into the initial capital of the Fund in exchange for $50,000,000 worth of Fund Shares at $20 per Share. The Fund will carry the bonds at only1.25% of their “legal claim value” giving the Fund significant upside potential if settlement at even a fraction of the legal claim value can be obtained through either collection on the claims, litigation or monetization efforts.

Precious Metals

 Aside from the fact that this sector will grow very quickly through trades of Fund shares for shares of publicly traded legitimate mining companies, the most unique aspect is that this Sector will have the ability to sponsor the creation of a gold backed crypto currency aided by the billions of dollars of claims the Fund has to gold represented by the German gold bonds.

This sector will invest very heavily in the physical ownership of gold and silver along with “gold and silver notes” (effectively warehouse receipts representing fractional interests in the direct ownership of gold and silver bullion).

This sector will also be expected to hold positions in other precious metals as opportunities arise and will likely maintain a small basket of non-U.S. currencies for short-term liquidity needs including small holdings in speculative currencies that have the potential of revaluing in the near future such as the Iraqi Dinar (IQD) and the Zimbabwean Dollar (Zim).

Venture Capital

This will be the most unique Venture Capital operation to ever exist. All investee companies will come from an incubator, all will join a consortium with each of the other investee companies pledging to assist each other as needed, joint venture where possible, co-op the purchase of needed supplies and participate in joint offerings of SCOUTS (Small Cap Opportunity Unit Trust Shares) that will help to capitalize each company.

The Fund will establish a crowd funding portal to assist the investee companies and the Fund will also establish its own private stock exchange, without brokers, where the shares of each investee company and the Fund itself, will trade without fear of being shorted or being used in derivatives.

The Venture Capital Sector will fund as many as 300 new ventures each year that will all be assured to succeed. It is impossible to know what new technologies, ideologies and innovations those companies will bring to the world but chances are they could be quite substantial.
