What do people do to generate passive income?

Hey guys,
Can't trade single stocks at my the HF i'm at. Besides real estate and buying properties at 5-7% cap rates (but less in reality w/ vacanies, and main. capex), what are some places you can earn a nice double digit return on your capital? Not interested in peer to peer lending either.

Depends on how much capital you're playing with. A poster above mentioned other HFs but that's not a real option unless you're sitting on a ton of cash. Most HFs won't touch you unless you're writing 7 figures...even then.

You can invest in your buddy's new fund launches and get good economics.

I pay 1 and 10% for a pretty well reputed start-up fund as founder class. And you usually don't have to put in $1mm, $250k or even less will do.

That's pretty cool. Although it's expensive to run a small fund so your true %NAV pay-away is much higher than 1%.

Otherwise you can try:
* Value-oriented funds (would go for a boutique asset manager)
* Factor-based ETF (i.e. small cap, value, buyback)
* Angel investing (only for money that you are happy to throw away)

Personally, I don't really bother with PA stock picking. Much better off spending time on getting names in the book.

If you listen to Gary V and Tai Lopez for 23 hours a day and then buy their books and pay to listen to them speak live then you'll be generating $1 billion every hour in passive income. If you want more info just PM me and you can join my pyramid
