Newsletter January

Dear Readers,

As the new year begins, it only seems appropriate that we would have more exciting news coming out of Nicaragua! As the government and outside organizations review the official numbers from 2015, they continue to confirm what those on the ground already know: Nicaragua is on the rise. Numbers are up almost across the board. Nicaragua continues to receive accolades from international observers regarding its investment opportunities and responsible economic policy. If you think anything different, you might be letting the talking heads on TV do your thinking for you.

Because of Nicaragua’s status as a rapidly emerging market and solid ground for investment, I am pleased to announce that Joel Nagel’s President’s Week conference will be held in Nicaragua this year! Normally held in Belize, this exclusive, invite-only conference brings together high net worth individuals, company CEOs and principals, medical professionals, and leaders in their fields. During the event’s 18-year history, it has sold out every year. Half of the spots this year have already been spoken for. So if you meet the criteria above and are interested in being on the forefront of asset protection and international diversification, click here to request an invitation. I have been given a limited number of invites, so please act soon if you want to join us.

Nicaragua is truly picking up steam, and you as readers are ahead of the curve. Come visit soon, and you’ll be sure to find a way to get involved and make the most of the current opportunities. With President’s week, the infrastructure upgrades, the clinic being built at Gran Pacifica in association with Travel to Do Good, the low prices for which Nicaragua is famous, will only last a short while longer. I can’t recommend enough getting your boots on the ground now so that you can ring in the new year by seizing the day. A great way to do that would be to contact Travel to Do Good about their upcoming medical mission, and get a tax deductible trip to this beautiful part of the world. You don’t hear that often, and there’s a limited time to sign up. As always, it’s great to be in touch, and please reach out with any questions you have for me.

Until Next time,

Michael Cobb
Chairman and CEO

"Michael Cobb, you have truly brought ethical behavior to an elevated level.  Nine years ago when I was negotiating with you on lot 84A I asked about the houses in the area in front of us and you replied we were the first lots in our area that were permitted to have two stories . That was important to Tom and I as we wanted to preserve our view. Last year when the lot across the street was resold and building plans started, I asked Kent Payne to check and see that only a one story house was allowed on the lot. To my surprise, this was not the case. I prayed they would not build a two story house. Yesterday Tom was informed by Kent that as the house plans on the lot across were of the two story variety, you had offered to trade their lot for a more expensive and valuable lot in order to honor your word! The Cinco Amigos thank you for your ethics in a country in which many other developers have taken the easy way to their own destruction and to the harm of many others. You have raised the bar and we all appreciate your honor. I am proud to be associated with Gran Pacifica and with you."
Connie Orlandini, Gran Pacifica Property Owner


"ECI is just a solid, wholesome company. You meet the founders, and the people, and they're just happy. You know anything Mike Cobb tells you, you can take to the bank. It's like your brother telling you, or even better. This is my first trip to Gran Pacifica, and it just feels like home the moment you get here. Very comfortable, just like old time United States. It has the sense of community that people lost in the US, and I think that's the most important thing. You really can't put a dollar value on it, but you know it when you see it, and it's here.

Coming from a construction background, I can see that everything here is built to last, and there are a lot of little details that were thought of. Looking at the growth here, it really seems to be a solid investment, and it's also just such a great atmosphere. It's hard to put words to. It's really the whole mix of things, trustworthy, common sense people, great climate, real community, and sensible growth. Mike Cobb is a person with a dream, and he's really making that dream happen here. That's something you don't find every day."
John Fultz, ECI Shareholder
