Argentum 47, Inc.’s CEO Talks About Their Experienced Management Team, UK Investments, and The Potential of Asian Markets with Uptick Newswire’s Stock Day Podcast

PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / November 13, 2018 / Argentum 47, Inc. (OTC: ARGQ ) ("Argentum" or "Company") is a full-service Financial Intermediary, Corporate Consultancy, Retail and Corporate Financial Services, and Human Resources Company. Through its wholly-owned foreign subsidiaries, it advises both business and retail customers with their most critical decisions and opportunities pertaining to growth, capital needs, structure and the development of their financial plans. Peter Smith, CEO of Argentum, joined Stock Day's Everett Jolly.

At the top of the interview, Jolly started by asking Smith what makes Argentum 47, Inc.'s management team special. He explained his team has a huge amount of experience in this sector and are well placed to finally grow this company to where it needs to be.

"Our management has been at this quite a long time," said Smith. "Particularly in the business we are in right now, collecting funds under management. We previously built a business very similar to the one we run right now. We built that from $0 to $2.2 Billion dollars by acquisition and organic growth at a difficult time. The market is now much more favourable allowing easier access to targets."

Smith went on to say he and his team are going down the same path again with Argentum 47, Inc. Jolly then said, the last time Smith was on he discussed expanding and marketing, Cheshire Trafford UK Ltd., and asked for an update.

"It's a bit of a sleeping giant. We have $39 million dollars under management right now. We anticipate that in 2019 we will probably grow that $39 million to a figure, if not $100 million, probably not far off it and the plans to do just that are already in place and in motion," said Smith.

He went on to say they have 3 or 4 initiatives that are in place and are allowing Cheshire Trafford to push itself out into wider markets. He explained with $100 million under management, with the 1% business model that Argentum 47, Inc. operates, they would have a passive income of $1 million a year with the Cheshire Trafford subsidiary plus any new business fees due.

Jolly then said that the company defines itself as a corporate consultant and financial services, he asked Smith for a more layman definition and to explain who his clients are and how he makes money.

"Our client is, for example, a British citizen, they are a retail client and we are handling the medium to long term investment requirements." He further offered this explanation," Let's say Mr. Smith in London invests 100,000 Pounds with us, will select the correct investment vehicle for these 100,000 Pounds based on risk, reward, etc. We make our money in two ways. One, on the 100,000 Pounds, we would probably get an advanced fee, somewhere in the region of 3%. But the real income is that we get a 1% trail on that money for the life of the contract."

He explained that people usually leave the money invested for a long term , most of it is retirement planning. Jolly then turned the conversation to the Asian market and asked Smith what this looks like right now. Smith explained the Asian companies are much bigger in size.

"The assets that we are looking at right now range from $200 million right up to $700 million. We are also talking to funding partners in order to assist us in these acquisitions."

Smith said that on top of Cheshire Trafford in the UK, they have two other UK prospects each worth $50 million in the works, then they are moving over to Asia.

"In Asia the assets are very, very different, albeit the model is the same. If someone has $200 million, they should be creating an income of $2 million. The reason we are interested in buying them is because they don't generate an income of $2 million because the principals have not really worked the book. They may be getting an income of half-a-million, there is still a tremendous amount of growth. We believe in 2019, we put just one of these Asian assets on, that's it. Nothing too scary, just one. So probably $200 to $250 million."

He then explained that with the Asian investment combined with the UK assets they anticipate clearly that by the end of 2019 having a business that has somewhere in the region of $400-$500 million of money under management. With the 1% trail model that would mean $4 or $5 million of income.

"What's the price earnings you'd put on a business like ours, to be cautious I'd say 8," explained Smith. "Then you're talking a company that's worth $40 or $50 million at 8 and a half cents."

Smith closed the interview by saying that the capital part of their business is often overlooked.

"Let’s not forget, last time we spoke about a client of our named Creditum. Creditum are lending funds to holders of cryptocurrencies. I think I said last time it was at $150 million of applications, I've been with Creditum this week, the number of applications is now up to the best part of $200 million. They've got 62,000 registered potential clients and Creditum is a game changer."

He said it's an income stream that is ignored at the moment.
