We welcome the first of a series of new loan offers on site today. Regular lenders will be familiar with this tranche of credit. Below we offer an excerpt from the borrower's pitch. The usual disclaimers apply: while we have used our best efforts to ensure that the statements below are true, we cannot warrant that this is so.
The company is acquiring a stake in a financial services business with a view to acquiring the whole business in due course. The underlying business was established over 5 years ago and it funds small private equity deals in the UK. Its investors are high-net-worth individuals.
The underlying business has experienced exceptional growth over the last three years and has become extremely cash generative. Like many financial services companies, it is operationally geared, needing a team of relatively highly-paid executives in order to generate deal flow. The company receives fees when deals are completed and so the business needs to have a steady flow of deals in order to keep increasing profitability. Currently there is no shortage of deals and so the forecasts suggest that profits will continue to grow over the next three years.

In addition to new loan offerings, our secondary loan market, offering existing loans for sale by lenders, is available to registered Money&Co. users.
