Becoming an Investor or Lender
The continuously evolving opportunity set of CLPD is not available for subscription to the general public. However, qualifying high net-worth individuals and experienced institutional investors are from time to time invited and accepted to join a closed circle of professional participators. Apart from exceptional returns on equity, investors enjoy a choice of contractual instruments to suit their legal and tax circumstances, various optional forms of security or collateral agreements, highly transparent regular reporting, and flexible exit and re-entry options. Lenders of debt for a fixed rate can benefit from equally flexible and competitive terms subject to individual agreement.
