How are the investments introduced by Bridge Lend so much higher yield than mainstream investments?
The investments that Bridge Lend introduces clients to are categorised as high risk. Amongst other points, the following reasons apply: investors are typically investing into one company which is higher risk compared to diversified investments; the investments are often totally illiquid or have very low liquidity which makes them higher risk as this means that you are typically fixed into the investment for the duration of the term without the ability to get your capital back before; the structure of the investments are often less structured than large funds and other investment structures that large financial institutions offer so there are less checks that are done before the investment is available and on an ongoing basis; Some of the companies that you are investing into are new and have little to no track record which makes them high risk too. These factors are often combined at the same time as well as other factors, which make the investment high risk.
