Lets say you and 3 other people form an llc to do xyz. The company makes a lot of money doing xyz, and instead of paying the money out to the members of the llc and instead of just keeping the money in the companies bank, you want to try and generate a return on this money. Can you invest the portion of the company's money that is not needed for running everyday operations? Would any sort of licenses be needed? What if the amount of money generated from the investing becomes more than the money generated from the operation of the business? What happens then, would any sort of license or notification to the sec or anything have to occur?
