Generally, investors have two ways to invest in the oil market. They can either opt to invest through established public routes which includes commodity trading or investing in shares in oil companies (listed or unlisted). Alternatively, investors can invest directly in an oil well.
The reason investing in an oil and/or gas well is not familiar to many individuals is because it is more popular in areas where those reserves exist.
Drilling prospects are usually only available to select “investment clubs” or partnerships which have the sufficient capital to drill and complete the well. It may be difficult to find these investment partnerships since they are generally comprised of a small group of high net worth individual investors.
The Saxon platform aims to break through these barriers of entry by affording investors the opportunity to directly participate in deals that we source.
