Q: When I invest in AFC, am I investing in a single trust deed or in a pool?
A: You are investing into a pool. Each Secured Note is backed by the same pool of trust deeds and has the same priority of repayment.
Q: What is my security?
A: You are issued a Secured Note upon investment. Your Note is secured by a Security Agreement which pledges the assets of the funds as collateral for repayment in the event of default on your Note. These assets consists primarily of 1st Trust Deeds, cash and real estate.
Q: What is the difference between Term and Lock In?
A: Each Secured Note is a 5-year investment. However, you can redeem your funds with no cost or penalty after your lock-in period has elapsed. As an illiquid investment, some restrictions apply. See prospectus for full details.
Q: Why does each series have an interest rate range?
A: It serves as a minor inflation hedge for investors. Each Series has a yield floor and a ceiling. If the Prime Rate is below the floor on the last calendar day of the year, all investors receive the floor yield in the new calendar year. If Prime is between the floor and ceiling, the Notes reset to Prime. If Prime is above the ceiling, the Notes are capped at the ceiling. See prospectus for full details.
Q: Do I have to invest in $25K, $50K or $250K increments?
A: No. You can invest any sum above the minimum.
Q: Can I let my interest compound?
A: Yes! You can choose to receive a check or cash or let your interest compound quarterly. Quarterly compounding increases your effective return.
Q: Can I invest using my retirement account?
A: Yes! You can invest in Secured Notes using an IRA, SEP, 401K and other qualified accounts.
