Unbolted - lower risk, higher returns
Working capital loans - earn monthly interest at up to 12% pa*
*including bonus interest rate of 0.20% per month.
Unbolted finances the working capital requirements of dealers of luxury assets. Loans are secured against a revolving group of stock held in Unbolted's possession, with interest paid monthly on them. Besides the security of the assets, we also monitor the financial health of the business on an ongoing basis.
Warren Buffett's 2014 annual shareholder letter stated "The goal of the nonprofessional should not be to pick winners — neither he nor his “helpers” can do that — but should rather be to own a cross section of businesses that in aggregate are bound to do well." Unbolted’s Autolend is the solution to easy diversification of risk for the lender.
Sale Advance Loans
In partnership with auction houses, Unbolted advances 40% to 50% of the low auction estimate of an asset consigned for sale with an auction house.
What if Unbolted were to go out of business?
Our business is robust, but we have made arrangements for your loans to be serviced in the unlikely event that Unbolted ceases to trade. A third-party back-up servicer would take our place in servicing the existing loans.
- The appointed back-up servicer is Resolution Compliance Ltd ("RCL"), which is authorised by the FCA to operate an electronic platform in relation to lending under firm reference number 574048.
- While RCL is not authorised to hold client money itself, it is allowed to control client money if required. In the event that Unbolted ceases to trade, your funds will continue to be held in the segregated client money account held in our name but RCL will act as the administrator of the client account. It will receive any payments due from the borrowers into and make any payments to lenders from the existing client account.
- RCL is authorised by the HMRC as an ISA Manager and would be able to take over the administration of the Unbolted ISA accounts. This means loans held within an Unbolted ISA account will keep their tax-free benefits.
- RCL will continue to service and monitor the loans. It will:
- procure payment of the debts due under the loan agreements;
- enforce the rights under the loan agreements on behalf of the lenders;
- receive payments in respect of interest and capital due from borrowers; and
- make payments in respect of interest and capital due to lenders.
- RCL will charge a quarterly fee for providing its services. This fee will not exceed any ongoing income receivable by us and RCL will not charge any additional fees.
Please also note that while a back-up servicer has a contractual obligation to service the loans, there will be some residual risks in the event of the insolvency of a platform.
- the majority of balances due to lenders are those due from borrowers rather than from the platform operator itself. The lenders will not have any entitlement to any balances not yet received from borrowers; and
- the back-up servicer will not have the same incentives as the platform operator in managing the performance of the loans. As such in an insolvency or wind-down scenario, redemption of assets or recovery on defaults may be negatively impacted resulting in lower realisation of balances due.
