    This loan program is specifically designed for high net worth borrowers. Qualifying calculation based on verified liquid assets as an alternative method to income verification to determine borrowers ATR Ability to Repair.

    Our investors take a common sense approach to underwriting the creditworthiness of a particular borrower in regard to the individual's ability to repay the loan. People and their financial situations can be complex and unique, each with their own qualities and compensating factors. Our objective is to identify a borrower's reasonable ability to repay a loan while mitigating risk for the end investor. Often the answer is overwhelmingly obvious that the applicant is worthy of a loan and thus the interest rate, fees and terms offered are very reasonable. Unconventional income is often better in terms of proper evaluation. This decision is centered upon the verification of the income documents provided by the borrower.
