Unlike most investment companies, Obsidian’s main clients are people who would otherwise have their money stagnant in a checking account or in a poorly performing money market account. What we provide is an accessible, income producing investment for a segment of the market not traditionally served by large investment banks like Goldman Sachs.
Obsidian invests in property in burgeoning neighborhoods, instead of taking on risky stocks and bonds like most investment opportunities. What this means is that we are not subject to the swings of the S&P 500 and other indexes. Instead we do our business in the much more stable real estate market. The beauty of real estate is that unlike stocks and bonds, there will always be a suitable place to invest in real estate, so when one market is in decline, we simply transition to another, meaning your money is always being put to good use.
