Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about the product and how it works.

What type of investments do you make?

+

By employing a 'value investing' strategy, we aim to build a diversified and resilient portfolio consisting of high quality cash generating real estate assets across a range of asset classes consisting of mortgages, residential, commercial, and industrial assets.

We aim to acquire these real estate assets across a range of sectors with varying risk, return, liquidity, time horizon and regions.

Our diversified approach is designed to deliver outperformance by generating sustainable income and competitive capital returns, while minimizing downside risk. This in turn allows us to provide a risk adjusted fixed 7% APY yield rate through Compound Bonds.

We also aim to empower communities, people, and businesses with access to capital that was historically denied to them. We give loans to underserved and underbanked populations, adding a human touch to the otherwise rigid world of finance.

What is your asset management risk strategy?

+

It’s important to note that all financial investments involve an element of risk, and our Compound Bonds are no exception. At Compound Banc, we utilize our proprietary diversification strategy to reduce and manage our asset's risk and volatility.

We have designed our processes with the goal of being able to withstand economic downturns, and volatility. Based on our value investing strategy of acquiring assets for less than what we believe their intrinsic value to be, diversifying assets across regions, sector, risk and time horizon, and our use of technology and data science for investment acquisition: we believe that our portfolio from a liquidity, and risk management standpoint is well positioned.

Additionally, by investing bond proceeds into real estate; we gain access to what is historically the most solid and stable investment class.

Furthermore, by virtue of being a bond, our product on the capital stack in comparison to equity owners is a lower risk because bondholders have a higher priority claim to assets over common and preferred equity owners.

How does Compound Banc operate and make money?

+

The best investment assets used to be exclusively for the elite clients of huge financial institutions. We wanted to unlock this access for the everyday person, so we built our business around the business models of financial institutions that have been operating for generations on Wall Street and around the world.

Compound Banc's business model and operations are built based on the structure, strategies and principles of asset managers that manage funds for institutions and sovereign wealth funds. We are bringing institutional grade products that were once reserved for the Top 1% by financial behemoths for the everyday person.

We intend to have a diverse stream of income. First, we make a spread between what is paid to you (7%) as a bondholder and the return generated when the bond proceeds are put to work in loans and other investments.

Additionally, we will seek to earn rental income from the real estate assets we own, along with capital appreciation, interest payments, and other fees from loans.

Between interest on the loans made and the combination of other real estate investments, we believe that a greater return than the 7% will be generated, and we will seek to fund our operations using this difference.

What are bonds?

+

A bond is a fixed-income instrument that represents a loan made by an investor to a borrower. In the capital stack, being a bondholder us lower risk than being an equity owner because bondholders have a higher priority claim to assets of the company over common and preferred equity owners.

Generally, Bonds work by paying back a regular amount to the investor, also known as a “coupon rate,” and are thus referred to as a type of fixed-income security. For example, a $10,000 bond with a 10-year maturity date and a coupon rate of 7% would pay $700 a year for a decade, after which the original $10,000 face value of the bond is required to be paid back to the investor.

Compound Bonds are demand bonds with a 7% coupon rate, meaning that they earn a fixed 7% APY rate with interest compounded daily, and can be redeemed at any time.
