Our approach to clients
Alignment of interest
We invest alongside our institutional investors in the transactions we create, providing an alignment of interests.
We aim to build successful long lasting partnerships with our investors, our borrowers and key market participants.
We operate as one firm, collaborating to deliver all the relevant experience and capabilities of our firm to each situation.
We are open about our investment processes, decisions and structures, and provide a transparent source of capital to our borrowers along with clear and concise reporting to our investors.
We are focused on meeting agreed objectives, delivering innovative solutions for our clients.
Our approach to investments
Target lending markets with scalable and compelling risk return
We identify compelling opportunities where there is a gap between capital demand and supply, and create access points for term investment capital to go where it is needed.
We create value from the insights provided by our relationships with borrowers – being better able to serve their needs whilst also mitigating credit risks.
Structure our own investments
We interlock the design of our loan structures and the liabilities that fund them, to optimise the outcome for both borrowers and investors.
Fundamental credit analysis
We utilise our proprietary risk analytics and valuation platform, Venn Risk Analytics (VeRA), which underpins our approach to underwriting risk.
We focus on building and maintaining a robust financial, operational and compliance risk infrastructure.
