Having spent 4 weeks in hospital after a fall, and now already 2 weeks at home under lockdown, I’ve had plenty of time to read, and think, about a wide variety of topics including;

  • domestic – no dear I can’t vacuum the lounge while on crutches;
  • and business – confidence clearly up as during the lockdown businesses have had time to reflect on their current and future objectives.
The latter I found quite stimulating. Obviously others have too as the read on my last TBK Capital newsletter has had the highest opening response since I started sending these in March 2011 – just over nine years ago.
Time to read and research
Now with the office closed, paper files not at hand, and needing to search everything on laptop takes time. It also meant I read previous communications, which also took time, but stimulated a rethink for me.
And I’m obviously not the only one with these thoughts; during the lockdown we’ve received new mandates to raise both equity and debt and previous unfinished mandates have resurfaced.
As to reading, I’ve been a long time subscriber to Tony Alexander’s newsletters and was particularly impressed with his 20 April issue which dealt with handling recessions. This is a must read.
My favourites were the first and last of the 10 responses he received to the question to readers of they how handled past recessions. The themes were:
  • Forget profit and balance sheet and devote all attention to cash flow” and
  • Remember that this too will pass as all previous recessions have, and note that many people regret that once they had cash flows under control, they stayed too cautious for too long and missed some good opportunities.” My underline.

To get a pdf of this issue click here and to subscribe to future issues of Tony’s View click here. I thoroughly recommend you join his audience. Here’s the latest one .
Another read I enjoy is my Peter Speakman’s “Keeping you informed” newsletter. The last one was aptly named Capital Raising steps; a matter which is of course is TBK Capital’s speciality. If you’d like to subscribe to Peter’s newsletters call his office 09 973 0577 or email him at
Proof to me of the confidence returning, are the requests we’ve received to raise capital or borrow money to both start or expand both property projects and businesses.
So if you’re looking to borrow money for your business - or for a property purchase or development - reply to this email me or give me a call. Or if you’re not sure how to get the funds you need, contact me anyway.
Borrowing money
TBK Capital was formed 18 years ago to assist owners and buyers of businesses, and property buyers and developers, to raise debt and equity to realise their objectives. By the way, Tabak Business Sales is major shareholder in TBK Capital so if you want to sell your business they’re the people to contact
While there are a number lenders offering debt for business and property, including your bank, most of which seem to have made it harder to do right now, presentation of your request is vital. And at any time, like now when banks seem to be holding back, we have a number of other lenders to contact.
So, if you’re a business owner, a property developer, or someone looking to borrow or raise money for your business or for industrial or commercial properties, reply to this email or call me on +64 21 902 901.
And investing money
TBK Capital does not give investment advice. What we do is give people – many of whom have sold their business and got very bored playing golf all the time – the opportunity to get a decent return on their savings and the pleasure in assisting new and growing companies.
I’ve mentioned above the confidence that people have to invest in our country. You can see the current Offers on our website. And there’s others in the pipeline. Here’s a short summary of some of them.
Retirement villages
TBK Capital has been instrumental in raising capital for the construction of retirement villages, two of which are now fully subscribed and under construction. They are also in demand for the tax advantages available to investors and their projected 40% return.
For obvious reasons - like baby boomers retiring - the demand for retirement villages can only increase, as does the value of the original investors’ holdings. For example, the village still under construction in Paeroa raised investment units at $80,000, 2 of which are now for sale at $200,000 each.
And there will be more retirement villages being built. So if this interests you let me know and I’ll put you on the waiting list of investors.
I mentioned a few of these in my January Property Investment newsletter. The retirement villages above are of course fully subscribed but the already established Gisborne funeral business is still open.
Specifications and other matters relating to the Nelson Luxury home development are being update and new IM will soon be available. Current prospects will be advised soon but if you’re interested call or email me to receive a copy.
If it’s a property fund that interests you then the Williams Corporation Fund could be of interest. For more information on this, email TBK’s South Island representative Dave Armstrong or call him on 027 210 7277.
Other Investments
We’ve got a few we’re looking at now which you’ll be advised of as a subscriber to this newsletter. These will also be listed on our website under Projects.
In the meantime make the most of the lockdown – as it’s turned out it’s been a great time to reflect on the past and plan the future.
