This is another special COVID-19 marketplace awareness broadcast. We are the place to keep you up to date on what is going on in the market. Specifically for entrepreneurs who need to make money in this ever-changing time, come here with any questions you have and we will have or find the answers. We will continue to bring you amazing experts that share their expertise and perspective on what is going on in the market today. Today I am joined by Fuquan Bilal. Fuquan is the founder and CEO of NNG.
Fuquan Bilal founded NNG in 2012 with the principal mission of capitalizing on the growing supply of mortgage notes in the interbank marketplace. Mr. Bilal utilizes his 20 years of residential and commercial real estate success to identify real estate opportunities and capitalize on them. To date, he has successfully managed three private mortgage note funds that primarily invest in single-family performing and non-performing mortgage notes. His financial acumen and proprietary set of investment criteria enable him to purchase under-performing real estate assets at a deep discount of face and market values, thereby increasing the value of the assets. This, coupled with his ability to maximize the use of leverage, enables him to build strong, secured portfolios with solid passive income flows. Fuquan effectively hedges investors’ risk by spreading their investment across a portfolio of alternative assets that diversify and stabilize the fund’s return and valuation.
In this episode, we talk about many different opportunities for making money in the current real estate market. Fuquan shares about the trends and changes he is seeing in the real estate market. He also shares his out of the box ways to invest in real estate in the current market.“One thing that really resonated with me early on was the power to go back into my community and revitalize communities by fixing up properties and that really gave me a sense of joy.” -Fuquan Bilal Click To Tweet
