How you make money
EnergyFunders is the first of its kind platform to deliver direct access to the cash flow returns at the wellhead of oil and gas projects. Each project that comes onto the platform gets vetted by their team of industry experts, with decades of experience in curating and managing oil and gas drilling projects. Each project comes with a hurdle rate of return, and cash payout target for investors. Only after clearing this return objective, does EnergyFunders begin participating in the remaining upside along with you. This means their expert team has only one incentive throughout each step of the process: select the highest quality projects, with the best chance of delivering cash payouts to investors.
You are investing in a limited partnership that purchases oil and gas assets throughout the United States that their team identifies, acquires, and manages on your behalf. However, you should expect it to grow and change over time as they acquire more projects, and others are sold or pay off. During the early phase of the Partnership, as investments generate cash, they will pay out approximately 10% of net income via monthly distributions. The remaining net income will be retained for reinvestment opportunities. As the Fund approaches the target life of three to five years, they will stop reinvesting and begin distributing 100% of net income. At the end of the Fund life, they will liquidate the remaining investments and distribute proceeds back to investors, net of expenses and fees.
How EnergyFunders makes money
The fee structure may differ depending on the fund you decide to invest in. EnergyFunders charges 2% annually, plus origination fees.
Is it safe?
They only partner with expert operators with proven track records. They carefully vet each potential oil investing project and present only the best to their members. They give you all the information about the project, including third-party engineering reviews, disclosures and projected rates of return. They also provide information about tax benefits, risks and rewards so you can be an informed investor.
How You’re Taxed
How you're taxed on commodities depends on how you invest in them. Commodity ETFs have special tax rules, with the exact impacts depending on the legal structure of the ETF and whether it's a futures-contracts or physical commodity ETF. You can expect to receive a Schedule K-1 or a Form 1099 from the ETF issuer each year detailing your tax reporting obligations. Meanwhile, gold and other precious metals are categorized by the IRS as collectibles, which are taxed at the long-term capital gains tax rate of 28% when held for over a year. This includes precious metals ETFs.
