Default Risk — Investments are neither FDIC insured nor equivalent to bank CDs or Treasury notes. Inflation Risk — Similar to bonds (since there’s a fixed rate), you have the risk of inflation eating at your returns. However, with the high rate of return, this risk is reduced. Liquidity Risk: Loans are typically held for the duration of the term Economy Risk — Another recession will more than likely increase overall defaults of individuals within AlphaFlow. This would cause your return to decrease.
