Opportunities etc.

[If you have an opportunity that you would like to be listed, please send brief details to philip@pealnetworking.co.uk]

The return generated is a flat 20% of the amount invested, and the term is generally 3- 6 months.  Even though the borrowing companies can offer some security, they are typically not able to raise funding from banks and so are willing to pay these fees as they will otherwise lose out on bigger returns from e.g. one-off trade deals, IPOs etc.  You would join other investors who invest in the £10k - £150k range.  The risk is mitigated by obtaining security, and the borrower will sign a legal agreement that is designed to protect the investor.  Please contact Philip Mendonça on 01428 644896 or philipm@peall.com for further details.
