When investment guru Matt Badiali first appeared on television, offering people a piece of a $34.5 billion dollar payout many scratched their heads. His advertisement ran like so many others, well dressed man offers big check, all that is required is a minor investment of money. Trustworthy? Of course what could go wrong? However, freedom checks are a more legitimate investment than most people think.
Freedom checks suffer the same problems as cryptocurrency. Nobody really understand them so it is hard for them to wrap their heads around the benefits. The idea behind what Badiali terms, “Freedom Checks” is a legitimate investment in natural resource companies. It is based on Badiali’s expertise as an investor, his knowledge of natural resources, and his experience in the natural resource market. The idea stems from natural resource companies use of tax exemptions, something that requires a number of stakeholders to qualify for. Stakeholders that get freedom checks.

The stakeholders have no direct control, and stakes can be purchased for as low as ten dollars. The stakes are actually Master Limited Partnerships. They are tradeable partnerships that grant companies all the perks of publicly traded companies, as well as the cash flow. The use of MLPs means that companies will not be taxed on profits until they dispense said profits to investors, but in order to quality 90% of their revenue to the stakeholders who have invested. This makes them basically tax free. It also means that stakeholders get a check every quarter or monthly period.
These monthly to quarterly checks would be the selfsame checks Badiali holds up in his commercial. Like any investment the payout is dependent on the success of the company. But as Badiali is an expert geologist who investigates such companies for their viability, the investment is a good one to make. Matt Badiali is also an editor for venerable Banyan Hill Publishing.
