9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament

October 18th, 2011

Denver-based Live Water Properties broker, Brian Hartley and guest, Mark Lucas took to the cool waters of the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers last month to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. The 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament was a rousing success as 14 teams raised over $71,000 to help fund further research and raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis via a 2-man tag team attack on the fiery trout of the scenic Roaring Fork Valley watershed. » More: 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Celebrity Classic/Redbone Tournament

The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford’s Said Business School has published an excellent article entitled “Blended Value Investing: Innovations in Real Estate.”

This article defines Blended Value Investing as investment that focuses not only on meeting defined financial return targets, but on preserving and creating ecological conservation value as well.  The paper focuses specifically on Blended Value Investing in real estate, and begins by listing the vehicles available to invest in such properties.  These vehicles are niche-individual deals, funds, and a marketplace.  Since much ecological and conservation-based real estate investment involves large tracts of land that trade infrequently, niche deals and funds provide the best way to access this kind of investment.
