Until Raising Pool Closes
This means any funds invested now will only be used to purchase cattle when the pool closes.
Your funds are invested alongside funds gathered from other clients. This pool of funds is used to purchase livestock which is looked after and managed by our farmer Beefcor, who have over 80 years of cattle farming experience and are one of the largest feedlots in South Africa.
The livestock is fed and maintained until it reaches the optimum weight to be sold to an abattoir.
The value of your investment is based on the weight gain of the cattle as well as the selling (market) price.
You do not own a specific cow but rather a percentage of the herd of cattle held on the farm, depending on how much you contributed towards the pool.
Key product terms:
You are invested in a pool with other investors and you own a percentage of the pool which is determined by the amount you’ve invested and the pool size.
Raising pools open and close every 2 months, this means that if you invest your funds at the beginning of the raising pool, your funds will only be used to purchase livestock when the pool closes at the end of two months.
If you invest monthly, your funds will mature every 2 months in the following year.
The invested funds are locked in for 12 months.

How often will I get feedback?
You will receive feedback every 120 days which is how long it takes for us to get the cows to the optimum weight or upon sale of the cattle. Once the cows have been sold, we will provide you with a report explaining the performance.
Is my investment guaranteed?
Your investment is not guaranteed; however 99% of the cattle are guaranteed. SV Capital has taken measures to ensure the best possible outcome by conducting extensive due diligence on the partner companies that we work with but there is a level of risk that you will be taking in this investment.
Can I invest in a pregnant cow?
We do not have the option to invest in a pregnant cow. All our cattle are placed in a feedlot for beef consumption purposes, we do not breed cattle.
Do I own a specific cow?
No, you don’t own a specific cow, you are invested alongside other investors. You own a percentage of the herd of cattle kept on the farm. This helps reduce your risk and makes the investment more affordable.
What is the potential risk?
The two main risks is:
The market price at the time of sale
Livestock doesn’t gain the expected weight
We have put measures in place to mitigated as much of the risk as possible by having a guaranteed buyer when the livestock reaches its optimum weight
