How we create lasting value for Investors
The Fintech Lending Fund I invests in credit facilities secured against granular pools of underlying SME loans and credits issued by Fintech Lending platforms carefully chosen and evaluated by Channel.
The portfolio is subject to industry, geography and credit quality limits. Channel evaluates the Partner as well as underlying SME portfolio trends and performance.
We provide regular portfolio monitoring and ESG overlay to each investment.
Our Sharia-compliant strategies are carefully governed by the requirements of Sharia law and the principles of the Islamic religion.
The Fund offers institutional investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of conservatively managed global trade finance assets. The assets of the Fund are short dated, self-liquidating and facilitate the supply of goods or services. The focus of the fund is to deliver stable returns to investors while seeking to preserve capital in-line with Sharia-compliance. We consider this strategy an important type of socially responsible investment.
Channel has managed securitised products since 2007 in a variety of asset classes as underlying collateral.
ABS securities are notes issued by Luxembourg or Cayman vehicles managed by Channel. Originations are prospected, assessed and monitored using a data-driven approach.
Each ABS security is an ordinary debt note with loans linked to embedded finance programs and digital/blockchain offerings.
Notes can be listed or rated by rating agencies to suit investor preferences.
