That's such an easy problem to solve, I'm with Garwood on this : bullshit excuse. That's so common - get something popular partially with the "buy local, support your own country !" stuff, then the first chance that comes along take the money and run. Go buy real estate with it. "Best business decision we ever made !"They needed better accountants.
Their 'financial advisors' were crap
Get kinda burned out on that after a while.
