The first step in building your corporate or real estate investment portfolio is to form a legal entity. If you’re not sure which structure you need to protect yourself and your assets, then we recommend a Limited Liability Company (LLC). This entity is flexible, provides asset protection for its owners, allows anonymity, is a sufficient structure for most business needs up to $100 million in value, and is often required by vendors before opening trade accounts.
The LLC is managed by managers -- either third party managers appointed by the members, or all the members can have management roles by default.
Alternatively, a corporation may be appropriate when the exit strategy involves a sophisticated acquisition or public financing round.
