Our Approach

Direct lending is a form of corporate debt provision in which lenders other than banks make loans to companies without intermediaries such as an investment bank, a broker or a private equity firm. In direct lending, the borrowers are usually smaller or mid-sized companies, also called Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), rather than large listed companies, and the lenders tend to be wealthy individuals or asset management firms.

Direct lending is a fast growing area of finance due to its high yield opportunity. Direct-lending funds have returned 20.3% over the past year, according to data provider Preqin, and about 13% on average over the past three and five years (source: Barron’s).

By linking borrowers directly with investors without a banking intermediary, Aspire Capital is able to deliver a faster, more efficient service to customers, at a fraction of the cost while still operating at high yields. As a result of disintermediation, there are less fees inccured by investors.
