“Ecuador has it all. Beauty, convenience, low cost and opportunity.” I wrote these words over 12 years ago when Merri and I first visited this unique equatorial country to look at Ecuador real estate as an investment.

The country has really paid off financially over the last decade, but as is so often the case what we thought we were looking for was only a smidgen of what we received. Ecuador has brought our lifestyles so much more than just extra cash.

We have gained much more than just profit and business and investing opportunity. We have gained incredible luxury, heart-warming sweetness, breath-taking beauty, much better health and pleasant surprises at every turn. Yet having lived, worked and played there now for over a decade, we are just beginning to feel how really special and what enormous joys and pleasures this tiny country has to offer. Ecuador real estate opportunity is just one small part.

Slightly smaller than the state of Nevada, Ecuador has four highly distinct zones, the Amazon jungle basin, the Andean central highlands, the Coastal Plain and the Galapagos. Not only do these four regions offer highly different lifestyles and opportunities distinct from each other, each also offers unique sights, sounds and thrills that you cannot obtain anywhere else in the world. Yet it is all so compact!

Nothing is much more than an hour or two away from any other place. In Ecuador you encounter cultures, knowledge, birds, plants, sights, scenes and sounds you will not find anywhere else in the world.

Yet there is even more that is hard to explain. A sweetness that lies just below the surface permeates all things and makes them somehow enjoyable in ways that are difficult to describe. Merri and I have taken almost 2,000 investors to this country since we first began.

Again and again they say the same. “I don’t know what or why it is that I feel so good here, but I love it. I have to come back again.”

Perhaps it’s the random, jumbled, apparent lack of order in a society where things do work. The airport is organized and gets better every time we arrive. Despite having eight Presidents in the last nine years the political system does move forward (Ecuador is South America ‘s oldest democracy), the legal system does work. Perhaps it is the way things work differently there.

Perhaps it is the incredibly low cost of fresh fruit, clean air and pure water. Whatever it is, many of those who have accompanied me have (like Merri and me), invested, bought homes, moved there full or part time and bettered their lives in a multitude of ways.

Our upcoming International Investing and Business Course in Ecuador explains how you can enjoy and cash in on this wonderful country as well as global economic distortions by having a global investing and business view. We will conduct this course at our Ecuador home and hotel Meson de las Flores .

Here are a few of the subjects we review at this course.

#1: How to cash in on distortions in global real estate in Ecuador! We have gained much more than just profit and business and investing opportunity in our global real estate searches. We have gained incredible luxury, heart- warming sweetness, breath-taking beauty, much better health and pleasant surprises at every turn. Having lived, worked and played in Ecuador now for over a decade, we’ll focus heavily there.

Ecuador has some of the most magnificent pieces of mankind’s infrastructure that has been almost totally unused and offer grand investment potential. We will review many properties in Ecuador and why this Andean nation has special value now.

This course is for investors and for those who have a business to expand and for those who want to start a business for fun and profit. Business sessions include:

#2: How to have an Import Export Business anywhere. We’ll especially zero in on Ecuador export business opportunities in carved wood, ceramics from Cuenca, carpets from Guano, silver and gold jewelry from Chordeleg, paintings and art, textiles from Otavalo, leathers from Cotacatchi and flowers from the Andes. For example you’ll learn how factories make bread dough jewelry that can be fashioned into high school and college mascots and purchased for pennies apiece (to be sold for dollars abroad). You see how the only native American owned mill produces coats, shirts, sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves in school colors of your choice (at really low prices). These can be sold for ten times their cost.

#3: How 100 years of global economics can enhance your investments and business now. Learn how history reveals currency distortions that create opportunities to borrow low and deposit high. For example right now you can borrow Japanese yen at below 2%, Swiss francs below 3% to invest in business, real estate or other currencies that pay 5%, 6%, 7% and even more.

Subjects in the global investing sessions include a review of global stock markets, currencies and interest rates and how they are shifting versus the greenback.

Another session looks at where to invest globally right now…plus how to spot the hottest trends before they become hot. We also cover how to cash in on currency shifts through the Multi-Currency Sandwich (Borrow Low-Deposit High) tactic. This is a perfect time for such investments because they diversify currencies and take advantage of the currency distortions that now plague investors around the world.

Currency experts from Jyske Bank (one of the major currency trading banks in the world) will speak at that course on this subject. For educational purposes we developed five Multi Currency portfolios with Jyske Bank that we track for informational purposes. Jyske Bank is the second largest Danish bank, with 450,000 domestic clients, 35,000  international clients, USD 23 Billion in total assets, and a moody’s rating of A1.

Jyske Bank Private Banking division is a business unit of the Jyske Bank Group, and they cater exclusively for international private investors from 180 different countries. They have offices in Copenhagen, Switzerland and Gibraltar and Fuengirola and Cannes. Jyske Bank is one of the most experienced currency trading banks in the world and trades 24 hours a day. Many bank’s use Jyske Bank as their currency trader and their daily turnover is 50 billion dollars. Jyske has over 35 years’ specialization in private banking and Denmark is ranked by Moody’s as the safest country in the world to have a bank account in.

Jyske Bank uses a good value system as well and their affiliated fund management company has been rated number one by Morningstar.

They use this value system to help us select shares for our Multi-Currency Portfolio Educational Tracking Service. This has worked well.

Here is how the portfolios we created performed in 2006:

US Dollar Long            9.04%

US Dollar Short          10.43%

US Dollar Hedge          11.46%

Emerging Market          42.93%

Asia Emerging Market    114.16%

Then we formed five new portfolios last November 2006.

Here is their performance since November 1, 2006 to June 1, 2007.

Portfolios 2007 Mar 27 July 20 Aug 17 Aug 31 Sept 28 Oct 5
Swiss Samba 16.15% 45.84% 26.42% 30.86% 44.40% 47.94%
Emerging Market 15.11% 67.67% 30.50% 67.95 103.22% 105.22%
Dollar Short 20.12% 33.81% 40.31% 9.14% 42.71% 42.06%
Dollar Neutral 16.58% 37.64% 38.07% 13.56% 34.74% 37.19%
Green 86.86% 178.28% 214.15% 110.93% 220.22% 236.47%

We certainly cannot expect this type of performance to continue, but there is a more important lesson here. The lesson is that when a properly constructed portfolio is leveraged and diversified, it can be safe and profitable regardless of the underlying idea. You will learn all about these five portfolios at the course.

Two diverse portfolios, US dollar long and short, have both be profitable. At the course we will look at how and why and what investors can do to gain from this type of investing.

These portfolios offer the advantage of diversification, in several cases into nine currencies and nine different  investments of which more than half have strong A to AAA ratings.

We will review any changes made in these portfolios and update what and how currencies and interest rates may move in the months ahead.

#4: We’ll look at emerging stock markets and emerging bond markets as well. 2006 was the sixth consecutive calendar year in which international investments in emerging markets outperformed developed markets. In 2006 the Emerging Markets benchmark gained 32.2% in US dollars and 18.2% in euros. This compares to a total annual return of 20.1% in US dollars and 7.4% in euros for the MSCI World Index of the developed markets in 2006.

Over the last six years ending in December 2006, the Emerging Markets index delivered a total return of 217% in US dollars and 125% in euros, while the Major Markets Index gained 33.8% in US dollars, but, due to the weakness of the US currency versus the euro, lost 4.8% in euros. Among the regional indices, Latin America was the best performing region in December (+7%), as well as in the last three (+22%) and twelve (+43.2%) months. Latin America was also the best performing region the year before (+50%). Asia came in second for the year (+32.7%) but ranked third in December (+3.7%) and in the last three months (+15.2%).

Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) finished the year in third place among the regions with a total return of 24%. It gained 4.3% in December and 19.2% in the last quarter 2006. You’ll learn why for the calendar year 2006, the highest total returns were recorded in China (+82.9 %), Venezuela (+79.5 %) and Morocco (+68 %) and why these may not be the top 2007 markets. Then we’ll update 2007 and what could happen in 2008!

#5: One session will especially focus on alternate energy and water. For example we’ll see why Hyflux (water cleaning membranes mainly in China ) has risen from $1.50 to $5 in less than a year ago. We’ll look at Vestas (windmills) shares also up from $50 to $106. Plus there will be an in depth review of bio diesel that becomes profitable at $30 (Brazilian) and $48 ( U.S. ) per barrel oil prices. You can see above that our Green portfolio which invests in environmental firms is the top performer up 170.33% in seven months!

We’ll look at two shares, Vestas (wind energy) and Q-Cells Ag (solar energy) that are in our portfolios and have more than doubled in the last seven months.

This course goes far beyond just investing in stocks, bonds and currencies. Other sessions cover:

#6: How to write and use publishing, seminars and the Internet to create your own global business from your home.

#7: How to use the latest tax savings and offshore legal structures to gain the ultimate asset protection.

This course offers even more. You will learn how to gain more than cash-freedom, friendship, financial security, prestige, tax savings, legal protection, fun, adventure, self-sufficiency, fulfillment and more satisfaction…by combining very small amounts of money with your time and energy.

Previous course delegates have included business people, brokers and professionals, doctors, dentists, lawyers, retirees, couples wanting to get into business together, insurance agents and marketers who want to enhance their existing business or build a second sources of income. If you want to invest globally or have your own full or part time business, you should sign up for this course at Meson de las Flores. Those who attend can also stay on and inspect real estate for sale in the area.

Space is always limited at the hotel and is on a first signed up, first available basis. Don’t miss this opportunity. Sign up as soon as possible and share the satisfying, profitable and exciting lifestyle that being international brings with Merri and me.  To enroll please go to:
