Strategies

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.

This Strategy invests in high quality debt securities linked to pools of short-dated credit products. Originated from North America, UK, EU and Australia.

This is our long established receivables and inventory investment strategy. The strategy is designed to provide USD, EUR, GBP and AUD investors with floating rate stable returns on short-dated pools of diversified credit risk with low correlation to on-the-run indices.

Each investment is structured to meet an investment grade quality level.

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.

ABS Transaction Reporting

Why Channel For ABS Reporting

As part of our asset management platform, we offer a digital service designed to provide our clients with risk management reporting over their asset backed transactions.

This service has the potential to add value to your business, allowing you to rapidly implement enhanced risk monitoring designed to support your growth and importantly avoiding the need to set up costly operational and technological infrastructure.

Our approach to reporting set up is to be as flexible as possible, tailoring reporting to suit your specific monitoring requirements. In addition, we can also provide proposals and “out of the box” solutions, if so required.

Asset backed transaction are often complex. We have managed over $9bn of assets on a turnover basis and have provided reporting over many different asset backed financing formats.

Our ABS Reporting service is designed to provide independent oversight and a robust outsourced solution that monitors the full life cycle of a transaction. It provides enhanced risk monitoring on a scalable basis designed to support the growth of your business. We take on new or existing transactions.

By utilising our proprietary Digital Securitisation as a Service (DSaaS) software, our clients avoid time consuming and expensive operational and technological infrastructure builds, relieving the stress, costs, and management of the reporting process.

We monitor and report key transaction performance metrics regardless of transaction complexity and we can provide either a risk reporting suite for internal or external use. If required, we can also propose enhancements to your existing reporting to assist in proactive monitoring.

We have extensive knowledge and over 50 years experience in managing complex asset backed structures, having assisted clients in their reporting and monitoring requirements across a number of complex transaction formats.
