These linked-loan units allow investors to tap into the investment expertise of Ecsponent’s management team and to enjoy the results of their future-based investment outlook. The linked loan units are essentially investments into Ecsponent’s share capital, thereby allowing investors to share in the growth generated by the company’s investments.

High-growth opportunities are identified and negotiated by industry specialists with significant experience. The company’s investment practice is based on the policies and principles that have been successfully employed in the past in other jurisdictions.
Ecsponent’s investments through credit services
Ecsponent continues to experience significant demand for capital across its operational markets by entities with ample security for the underlying investors. Therefore, all funds that are invested in providing credit services, including factoring-based finance for secured transactions as well as secured loans to qualifying small and medium enterprises (SME), are secured by realisable assets and guarantees.
Some of the profit-generating investments the group undertakes is to provide pioneering funding options to SMMEs with credible transactions, credible counterparties but who are unable to access capital or funding because they lack the financial history and security that are normally required by lending institutions.
