The Gold Collar Investor

Jul 13, 2020


In today’s show, Pancham interviews Mauricio Rauld, Founder and CEO of Premier Law Group.

As a syndication attorney, Mauricio helps syndicators understand the nitty-gritty of real estate investing. Or, as Mauricio puts it,” stops them from going to jail”.

You will learn the difference between a private offering and the ubiquitous IPO. Mauricio then explains the difference between 506 B and the lesser-known 506 C exemption. What are some of the reasons why most syndicators choose to operate under a 506 B exemption? 

If you are a passive investor thinking of investing in a syndication, then this show will be of particular interest to you. Mauricio has some great pointers on how to conduct a due diligence so that you can protect your hard-earned money.

We hope you enjoy this show!
