Introduction to Income

 

Investors are starved for income. Banks pay little interest; the 5 year note pays less than 1.6% and the ten year less than 2.1%.   High yield bonds are better, with an average of around 5.5%, but after a strong 5 year run, the yield does not necessarily compensate for the risk being taken.

 

Our goal is to identify higher yielding opportunities with good risk/reward characteristics.  Clients in the income series will be investing in secured loans, peer to peer lending, BDCs, and other alternative higher yielding investments.   When we deem it appropriate, we will use options to hedge interest rate or systemic risk. 

 

The income series will focus on higher yielding fixed income investments and provide greater liquidity and a shorter term time frame than our growth series.  The growth series will focus on private equity, distressed real estate, and other more illiquid and longer term assets.

 

Thus the Growth Series was born.

Handshake 1
Peer-to-Peer Lending
 

Peer-to-peer loans are unsecured loans that are made by individuals to individuals. They include student loans, commercial and real estate loans, and secured business loans. Transactions are conducted for profit and the lenders get to choose which borrowers to invest in.

 

There are significant upsides within the peer-to-peer model. Lending can lead to returns several percentage points higher than they would likely be at a bank and the P2P model provides further investment diversification, as consumer lending is an emerging asset class. Moreover, borrowers go through a screening process to narrow down the applicant pool.
