After the financial crisis of 2008, real estate prices had fallen 60% in the Phoenix area. I saw this as a good opportunity to invest in real estate, so I contacted my trusted Attorney Rusch / Reeves to set up a Real Estate Venture Fund in hope of attracting Swiss financing. I would be operating the companies in the United States. I bought nearly 100 properties and solicited my friends and associates to invest into the Hedge Fund. The Hedge Fund was up 35% in the first year of operation. I filed and paid U.S. and State tax returns on this CAYMAN ISLAND investment fund structure recommended by Rusch / Reeves. The difference between the Hedge Fund was, I was in control of this venture unlike the Rusch / Reeves Swiss Bank.
