Matt earned his bachelor’s degree in Sciences from the Penn State University. Soon after he graduated from the Florida Atlantic University with a masters in Geology, he continued to pursue higher studies. He enrolled for the Ph.D. programme in the University of North Carolina. Mid-way through his Ph.D., Matt got introduced to the finance sector and then there was no looking back. His unique financial strategies and vast knowledge of the intricate processes involved in the natural resource companies have consistently generated double-digit returns for his clients.
Matt Badiali recently shared a video describing the working of the latest and lucrative investment scheme called freedom checks. Unlike scams which are too good to be true, freedom checks is a scheme, currently offered by 568 companies who work on transportation, acquisition, refining, processing, and storage of natural resources. Matt, with his in-depth understanding of the scheme, believes that it is the way for the American investors to become independent in the natural resources sector. The recent fall of imports from the Middle East has proved to be beneficial for the natural resource companies on U.S. soil. The companies are projected to make payments amounting to $34.6 billion to its investors through the scheme of freedom checks in just one year.
All the 568 companies are called Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) as they donate 90 cents for every dollar earned to the investors on a monthly or a quarterly basis which is the only eligibility criteria to become an MLP. In the video, Matt Badiali explains that the payments made by the company to the investors on regular intervals of time are called freedom checks and can be deposited through the mail or directly wired to the trading accounts. According to Matt Badiali, the best perk of this scheme is that the profits are tax-free as they are considered as a return on capital. In the case of selling your investment in an MLP, the taxes are charged on the profits at a low capital gains rate.
