Fund objective
Increased banking regulation (particularly in Europe and the US) is imposing restrictions on certain types of lending by banks to both consumers and small businesses, leading to a growing market for specialty lending Platforms. The online lending market continues to expand rapidly as both borrowers and investors recognise the advantages relative to the traditional bank lending model. The Company seeks to generate an attractive total return for shareholders consisting of dividend income and capital growth via investments across a diverse portfolio of various online lending platforms (each a “Platform”), asset classes, geographies (primarily US, UK, Europe and Australia) and credit bands. The Company generates investment income from exposure to Platform-originated consumer and small business loans, including corporate and trade receivables, in accordance with certain investment limits and restrictions to ensure diversification of the Company’s portfolio is maintained and that concentration risk and credit exposure is mitigated. In addition, the Company may also make direct equity investments, or receive warrants to purchase equity stakes, in such Platforms
