The Alternative Investing Advantage Learn how to take control and give yourself the freedom to choose where you invest your money

This week on the Alternative Investing Advantage podcast, host Alex Perny welcomes Martin Saenz for a discussion on investing in underperforming notes—which can provide a viable option for investors seeking financial freedom. Martin is the author of five financial planning books and is a frequent speaker at national investment conferences.

During this podcast, Martin covers the basics of investing in underperforming notes. He discusses the challenges mortgage loan originators face and the process of buying and selling mortgages. Martin also emphasizes the importance of considering three risk factors when looking at investment opportunities: operator risk, capital preservation, and rate of return risk. Operators should be knowledgeable about their level of expertise, the amount of money they have in the opportunity, and their track record in acquiring mortgages and assets.
