Can I make money as an Angel Investor?
Whats an average turnaround time, minimum investment, service to go through - tax liabilities etc.
An average timeline for angel investiments is 5+ years.
There are all sorts of Angel Networks. Most networks focus on a particular region and some specialize in an industry.
Different Angel Networks have different requirements to be an investor. Angel investors will spread their investments around several ventures at a time, since most will fail and a couple will provide a large return. $25,000 or $50,000 would be typicall investment that an invididual Angel contributes to a single venture.
Tax liabilities you should go over with your accountant, which you should be using if your doing these type of investments.
In order to become an Angel Investor, you must first qualify as an Accredited Investor. This means you must have a net worth of at least 1M. Liquidity should be in the range of 100-250k. Your time horizon should be long term. Private Equity investments carry a higher degree of risk than any other investment vehicle. I would not suggest these investments to the lay investor, regardless of your net worth.
As for your tax question. There are certain private investments Uncle Sam will actually help you pay for. Investment in to domestic oil and gas exploration or production , wind, or solar technologies come with a tremendous amount of tax advantages. In most cases you can write off up to 90% of the entire investment.

What investments are 99.9%* safe, as safe as a savings account?*I put 99.9% because I suppose nothing is 100% safe. Even money under your mattress could be stolen or lost.
