Overview

Private credit is a $7 trillion asset class providing loans and debt financing to non-bank lenders, including the $140 billion+ venture debt market.  Historically, only institutions were able to invest in private credit to earn high yields with a low correlation to stocks. 

 

Percent is a NYC-based company making private credit investing more accessible, transparent and liquid. With their tools and data, retail accredited investors can find deals, invest in them and track their performance all in one platform. 

 

Investors also get transparency into loan originators with Percent’s surveillance report program.
 

Percent’s offerings have exposure across geographies like Latin America and the United States, as well as asset classes like:

  • Consumer loans assets (e.g, vehicle loans)
  • Small and mid-sized business loans (e.g., merchant cash advances)
  • Venture debt (e.g., financing between fundraising rounds)
  • Litigation finance

 

If you’re looking for diversified exposure to all of Percent’s existing deals, you can invest in The Percent Blended Note—which features Credit Default Protection backed by Anzen.

How You
Make Money

Percent gives investors access to private credit investments, i.e. loans made to companies in need of capital for expansion. Each of these investments pay out a certain yield (10-20%) over a set duration (one month to three years).

Many of these investments are also backed by predictable, cash flowing assets like cash advances, receivables and royalties.

When investment matures and the company pays back their obligations, you receive the principal plus interest in your Percent account. At that point, you can choose to withdraw your funds or invest them in other opportunities.

Makes Money

Percent does not charge fees on the short-duration notes (less than 9 months) displayed on their retail platform.

Percent does, however, offer longer-duration notes (10-36 months) with higher investment minimums ($5,000) on their Prime platform.  Prime offerings have a 1% annual servicing fee taken at the moment interest payments are distributed.
