No, we invest in a number of enterprises and asset backed portfolios to diversify the investments to lower the investment risk.

The directors consider that the Company’s income will be generated from investments to startup firms and established businesses with perceived long-term growth potential. This is a very important source of funding for these types of enterprises that don’t always have access to capital markets.

It is from these sources of income that the fixed interest of 8.75% will be paid. Your loan is fully covered by an A rated indemnity insurance policy should anything unforeseen happen. 

Please refer to the Information Memorandum for further information

Our principle business model for generating income will be based on investing through two main areas; “Direct Investments” and “Asset backed Portfolios.” Any decision to proceed on a potential opportunity will be made only once a extensive process of due diligence has been undertaken from our expert team and external advisors.

Overview of the investment streams

- Direct Investments 

Helping the wider economy grow through the support of our Asset Life lenders, the company will invest in, acquire or provide capital to a portfolio of companies, partnerships, joint ventures or other assets that we believe will provide high growth opportunities and, or, steady income.

Principally the company will be looking to invest in asset-backed opportunities although the key consideration will be the quality of the investee and their growth and income potential.

It may be right if you:

  • are looking for potentially higher interest rates on your capital
  • are looking for a plan which covers your bond with an A rated indemnity Insurance policy
  • are looking for a hassle free way of earning interest with no upfront fees or management charges
  • understand and accept the risks of the loan within the Asset Life FIP
  • can commit your funds for at least three years

As with any investment, the capital you loan has exposure to risks, although we have done all we can to ensure the this is minimal. This could mean you receive lower returns than expected and being paid over a longer period of time. To make sure you are aware of all the risks, always read the Information Memorandum.

All of these factors are contingencies which may or may not occur and the Issuer (Asset Life) is not in a position to express a view on the likelihood of any such contingency occurring. Prospective Debenture Holders should reach their own views prior to making any investment decision. The Issuer is subject to the below key risks. If any of these key risks actually occur the Issuer’s business, operations, financial condition or reputation could be materially affected and if the insurance indemnity is excluded Asset Life Debenture Holders could lose all or part of their investment.

  • Significant unexpected changes or outcomes, beyond those factored into the Asset Life strategy and business model, may occur, which could have an adverse impact on the performance or financial position.
  • If for any reason the insurance underwriters become insolvent the debenture Holders will rely solely on the investment portfolios.

Risks associated with this include:

  • Poor performance of the investment portfolio could have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition, results of operations and/or prospects of the Issuer.
  • Changes to the regulatory frameworks under which the Issuer operates or a breach of applicable regulations could damage the Issuer’s reputation and affect the Issuer’s compliance costs, returns and financial condition.
  • The level of repayments on the portfolio and consequently on the timing of the realisation of rolled up interest as well as delays in realising minority interests could have a negative impact on the investment capacity.
  • Operational risks may disrupt the Issuer’s business, result in losses or damage Issuer’s reputation.

Please make sure you read and fully understand the Information Memorandum before you decide to loan funds.
