WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES? 1. Typhoon is our number one enemy. 2. On the second year of investment period, an investor will already pay for the insurance of his cage. 3. If the cage is not insured on the second year of investment period, the company shall not be held liable for any damages on the cage of whatever cause. 4. The volume of harvest is not consistent since there are different factors that affect the growth and lives of the fishes. 5. Every business has its own risk factors. In this business we will try as much as possible to lower those risks for the benefit of all. There is no such thing as “risk-free” investments. We just have to choose those with minimal.
INSURANCE FEES Empire Franchise Investment- P6000/ year (calamities/AOG) Re-investment on fingerlings on each succeeding harvesting period: P6000 Renewal Fee after 8 years 45% of Initial capital
