Currently if you hold Loan Units that relate to a loan in which a borrower has defaulted on, it is likely you will lose your outstanding investment in that loan.
Should OurMoneyMarket conduct legal proceedings against the borrower 100% of the legal and associated third party collection costs can be recovered before any remaining proceeds are provided to the relevant investor.
As common with most investments there are risks, in relation to the OurMoneyMarket Investment Trust there is the risk that a borrower is late in making their repayments or the borrow defaults on their loan. Please refer to the “Risks of Investing” Section of the Product Disclosure Statement for more details.
OurMoneyMarket looks to mitigate any unexpected losses in the following ways:
Currently all loans are unsecured.
You can invest as little as $50 in Loan Units linked to any single loan, and there is currently no maximum, however OurMoneyMarket reserves the right to cap your investment at its discretion.
A $50 minimum investment also applies to any automatic reinvestment settings.
The minimum deposit is $50 to get started as an investor in the OurMoneyMarket Investment Trust.
Instead of investing in one loan where your investment exposure is then at risk to one individual borrower, our fractionalization facility lets you invest as little as $50 in potentially thousands of borrower loans, thus reducing the risk of loss in the event of a borrower default.
For example, if we assume every loan in the OurMoneyMarket Investment Trust has an estimated default rate of 2% and an investor has $10,000 to invest. If the investor invests in one loan, there is a 98% probability that they will receive all their principal and interest back and a 2% probability that they will lose $10,000. However, if they elect to invest in increments of $50, then they can invest in 200 different loans, meaning that there is a probability of 4 out of 200 loans defaulting. This would mean that the investor would lose only $200 of his initial $10,000 invested and receive all principal and interest back on the other loan investments. As a result, fractionalization helps investors receive their desired rate of return by spreading their risk.
We strongly recommend that investors take advantage of our capability to fractionalize your investment across a diverse set of loans. This is likely to result in a superior investor experience.
You can invest in loans that have a term of 1 year to 7 years, or such other term that may on occasion be made available.
