And now the twist!
While many of the more cash abundant tribes have established investment portfolios, that is not the case for many of the tribes across the United States. While we will just have heard about some tremendous success stories within Indian Country we all know for each one of those stories there are many more ventures that have failed. So what is the goal of diversification? Create additional revenue for government essential services? Put money aside for generations to come or is a business being created primarily to bring jobs to the reservation for tribal members? It’s easy to say all of the above but if the business fails? So the question is: Are tribes better off as some would argue investing any additional capital they may have into the financial markets where any number of instruments or products have easily outperformed by the rate of return and for sure longevity most tribal ventures or any business for that matter year to year? At the end of this panel, we will hear from an industry expert who will provide the audience with numbers based on hard facts and as a group learn from a pure return on investment which is the better investment decision.
