Investing in a pool of merchant cash advances has advantages over investing in specific investments, including
A pool of merchant cash advances is a diversified investment, as it contains a large number of merchant cash advances from different merchants and different industries. This reduces the risk of default and ensures that even if a few merchants default, the overall portfolio will not be greatly affected.
Low default risk
Merchant cash advances are typically secured by the merchant's future receivables. This means that even if a merchant defaults on their advance, we have a high likelihood of recovery. Additionally, merchant cash advance providers typically only provide funding to merchants with a proven track record of generating revenue over the past 6-12 months, reducing the risk even further.
Merchant cash advance portfolios offer relatively high returns compared to traditional fixed-income investments.
Our merchant cash advance portfolios are managed by professional portfolio managers who handle all aspects of the investment, including underwriting, servicing, and collections. This ensures that the portfolio is well-managed and that the investors' interests are protected.
Merchant cash advances typically have a short-term repayment period which can range from a few months to a year. This allows investors to have a relatively quick return on their investment and enables them to reinvest their capital in other opportunities.
Investing in a pool of merchant cash advances allows investors to make small investments in many different companies, which can be a great investment strategy for those who want to spread their risk across multiple borrowers. This approach can be especially beneficial for those who are new to investing or who have limited capital to invest.
Low barriers to entry
Investing in a pool of merchant cash advances also has low barriers to entry, meaning that even small investors can participate and gain access to high-return investments. This is opposed to investing in individual businesses which may require large investments and a lot of due diligence.
Mitigates the effect of specific investment gone bad
Opposed to investing in a specific investment, where a single bad investment can have a significant negative effect on the overall portfolio, investing in a pool of merchant cash advances helps to mitigate the effect of a single bad investment, as the portfolio is diversified across multiple investments.
