Advantages and Benefits for Investors

Local investing is personal and engaging. Local investors with the passion, time, and energy to evaluate local investing opportunities can put their money to work with growing businesses right here at home.
     COIN Investors do make money on local small business investments but local investing is as much about impact as it is about profits.
      Local investors can help expand businesses, create jobs, and increase the prosperity in their communities. Investing locally builds relationships and goodwill that last well beyond the life of a loan.
     Often the most exciting projects come about when investors work together, sharing expertise and insight.
     By drawing on the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of a group, COIN participants can find better investing opportunities and make better investing decisions .
     Traditional sources of investment advice such as accountants, brokers, financial advisors and attorneys do not always have the background to evaluate, understand, or encourage local small businesses.
     COIN investors have the opportunity to develop this critical local expertise.
