Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is time for another bond brought to you by yours truly.
With the successful repayment and interest on bond 7, I am back with another bond.
This time around, the bond will be for 15 billion ISK. This is in total 3 billion greater than bond 6, my previous largest bond.

The methods for this bond will be similar to my previous 7 successful bonds. I will focus mostly on station trading and regional trading within one single hub. I will possibly experiment further with additional hubs, alts, and jump clones as I have in the past. I will trade for the most part in areas of the market that I feel most familiar and comfortable with, most specifically with ships and implants. There is some possibility of hauling goods for profit, but I'm fairly lazy with that sort of thing so it is unlikely.
In previous bonds, I have considered manufacturing as part of the bond structure. That will not be the case with this bond. I am certain that with my current resources and available free time, ISK is best invested strictly within the market and not with using my BPOs. As with previous bonds, a small collection of BPOs will be used as collateral at the following values. These values are identical to the values used in Bond 6, but do also include 1 extra blueprint as to overcollateralize due to the high prices listed (the price I actually paid, I believe) for these blueprints.

Collateral:
Capital Cargo Bay BPO ME160, PE25 - 1B
Megathron BPO ME45, PE9 - 1.1B
Providence BPO ME3, PE0 - 2B
Dominix BPO ME40, PE9 - 0.8B
Raven BPO ME30 PE10 - 1.2B
Noctis BPO ME 40 PE 14: 0.45B
Total Collateral: ~6.55B

The total collateralized portion of the bond will be for 6 Billion, covered by roughly 6.55 Billion in blueprint assets to be held by RAW23.
The collateralized portion of the bond will pay out at 4% interest at the end of the 1 month period.

The uncollateralized portion of the bond will be for 9 Billion ISK and will pay out at 7% interest at the end of the 1 month period.

The bond will officially begin on Sept 1st and officially end of October 1st. As with previous bonds, the actual start date will be when I receive ISK. The set end date will remain October 1st (unless actual start is later than Sept 1st, in which case the corresponding day of October will be the end date). As with previous bonds, the bond will most likely pay out a little early in preparation of bond 9.
As with previous bonds, I will make updates of interesting (or not interesting) tidbits that are going on within the bond. These updates will be scheduled for weekly updates, but are more likely to be dispersed roughly every 5 to 12 days.

Collateralized portion remaining: 0
Uncollateralized portion remaining: 0

Current investors:
Collateralized:
RAW23 - 5 Billion
[EBNKS] - 1 Billion

Uncollateralized:
RAW23 - 1 Billion
Mericdus Gullimann (flakeys alt) - 8 Billion


A few previous investors were offered investment in this bond before I opened it to the public. Of those I heard back from, RAW was interested in the listed amounts. Flakeys first agreed to fill the remainder of the bond, but changed his mind a few hours later due to other plans with the ISK to help a friend. *Edit* Flakeys alt has announced that he does now have the ISK to invest, so will be a continued investor for this bond after all. :)

[EBNKS] would like the last 1b Collateralized, pending Raw23's reply.

Hi Kei,

Just a small question, what's the minimum amount for investment you will accept?

Cheers.

Unfortunatly CCP NAV gave me a 14 day forumban on flakeys as stated in the previous loan thread.

So as kei said i offered the full investment on my part but something came in between , a friend needed help , and i had to back out.

However i have gotten quite a bit of listed sale orders cashed last 24 hours , thank you sillicon Wink , and as such am willing to take the full 8 B uncollateralised - that's all that's left right? - if you are ok with that kei.

I will send the isk from this character around 1800 eve time once you have confirmed just to make the transactionsheet clear.

Confirming I'll be holding the collateral. Don't send any isk until I confirm that I am in possession of the prints though.

Hey Arancar,
Thanks for the question. It's actually one that I haven't spent very much time considering. The truth is (as you can see above and below), I could probably fill my bonds with a single investor if I were to insist on it. It might even make things easier for me. However, it is marginally more difficult to allow multiple investors, and I know that I'll still most likely get the bond filled by a couple of investors.
This bond has already filled, but I would say that in the future if some small fish were to want to invest 100 million, I would accept an investment down to that size, given that I'd probably only have 1 or two investors at that level and the rest at or above 1 billion.

I'm not sure what size investment you had in mind, and I'm really not one to try to steer people away from investing in my bonds, but you might be better off taking an amount that small and taking the time to invest it in the market yourself. Even without trade skills, you'll be in a good place to make the 7% on 100 million pretty quickly. It's better to invest larger amounts because it's a little more difficult to make 7% on a billion. But hey, if you want to invest a smaller amount like 100 million, hit me up on my next bond and I'll stick you on the list.

----------------------------------

As for this bond, it is currently full.
Thanks to Flakeys alt there and EBNKS for their investments, and as always, thanks to RAW for his investments and for holding the collateral.
I will be contracting the collateral to RAW shortly.
Once he has posted receipt, please send me the ISK for your portion of the investment, and I will begin turning it into more. :)

Thanks again everyone.

I was assuming that your minimum was in the 1 bill+ mark, mate Smile

Not quite sure where the 100 mill idea come fromRolling Eyes, but investing a small amount or large amount is not an issue, just a good rate of return is all I seek.

Cheers and good luck!!

Whelp, for future reference... 100M would be the minimum I'd take.

As another side note, there is a possibility that this hurricane will knock out power for a few days, so if I happen to disappear, I'm still here, I swear. Its looking like power and such will be fine.

Edit in response to message below from Flakeys alt (not really worth bumping the thread or adding more posts: Hey man, it's no problem at all. The only extra work it really took was that I wrote 1 quick email to another previous investor and that rather than just making an announcement of bond 9 starting, I instead listed what was reserved already by RAW and requested some investors.
Long story shorter, it just means I get to play this wonderful game more.

Again appologies if anything gave you extra work there kei.As a half of my sell orders is pure speculation - wich is something i have absolutely no experience in and i rarely check how they go - i did not expect to have the sums i have now in my wallet.

Even after my post i got 3Bille in sell orders out so got some for my friend , for you and something aside for myself to throw it in again.

Will send isk once raw's confirmation is in and again apologies for extra work i might have caused.

Not quite time for a proper update yet.
However, as of today, eve-profit is putting me at just over 1 billion in profits over the last 7 days. So that is rather exciting.

I'll be back in a few days with a proper update.
