Thank you for your interest in Capstone Fund 5. Below are the top 12 Reasons to Invest
- Return on Investment = Yield
The projected yield to investors of Capstone Fund 5 is 9% to 14% with an 8% preferred yield to investors and a 50/50 split of remaining available cash between investors and the manager. If the average loan interest paid to the fund is 14%, it would result in an 11% return to investors. If the fund then retains some minimum leverage from a bank line, the return to investors increases.
- Capital Preservation = Managing Risk
The maximum Loan to Value for any loan in Capstone Fund 5 will be 70% of As-Is appraised value. Capstone retains the same appraisal management services used in normal FHA/Conventional consumer lending. Borrowers and brokers are not allowed to interact or choose their own appraisers so there is decreased opportunity for an appraisal to be inflated by an borrower's opinion. Capital Preservation is of extremely high priority.
- Transparency = Monthly Reporting
Capstone Financial and Capstone Fund 5 uses nationally licensed and rated Clear Spring Loan Servicing out of Dallas, TX for all loan servicing and collections. Clear Spring issues a report each month for all prior month's collections, pay-offs, and other loan activity. These reports are available to all Capstone Fund 5 investor upon request to help them monitor and track fund performance. Each month Capstone will also send each investor a 1 page, easy to read, statement with their interest payments.
- 3rd Party Loan Servicing = Collections
Clear Spring has a full collections department integrated with its loan servicing platform. This allows all normally scheduled loan collections and default loan collections to be managed on the same platform. This integration helps keep the timelines between when a borrower misses a payment and when a default resolution or borrower reinstatement payment being collected to a minimum. Borrower defaults will always occur. Part of keeping Capstone investor's capital secure while providing a attractive return is managing these defaulting borrowers effectively. In every case in Capstone's history, a loan in default has resulted in extra revenue and a higher return on investment for Capstone on that particular file. Defaults are a revenue opportunity if managed correctly.
- Deployment of Funds = Less idle time for your Cash
Some investors involved with private lending have historically participated by a single loan at a time. However, when that loan pays off the investor is left with no yield until those funds are put to use again. Capstone Fund 5 addresses this problem by continually rotating its capital through loans. On any idle capital, investors are still paid a 2% preferred return beating any depository institution. The projections for Capstone Fund 5 to have idle capital is roughly 5%, keeping placement and returns high.
- Liquidity and Leverage = Using Bank Money
Capstone has met with several lending institutions and has a 2:1 equity to debt target. The use of some limited and conservative debt will help keep Capstone Fund 5 returns in the double digits while still reserving some liquidity to fund new loans, or liquidity for early investor exits when life events create the need.
- Geographic Diversity = More Managing Risk
Capstone Fund 5, and Capstone Financial have a heavy emphasis on the Western region for placing loans. However, Capstone uses a national wholesale program to further diversify its assets geographically. As with any capital preservation strategy, some types of diversity are needed to reduce risk. As discussed, Capstone gets full 3rd party valuations and credit reports on every borrower to help identify quality files for funding in all geographic markets.
- Licensed Loan Originator = Compliance with Dodd-Frank/CFPB
Capstone Financial is a licensed Mortgage Bank. With this licensing and working with rated servicer Clear Spring, Capstone makes every attempt to follow federal and state guidelines set by Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Board.
- Standard Underwriting = Appraisals and Credit Checks
Each file Capstone Financial and Capstone Fund 5 funds has a full 3rd party valuation and credit reports from all 3 major credit agencies. This helps Capstone evaluate each property, and each borrower, for every loan file. These requirements are a minimum, frequently Capstone requires borrowers to supply historical banks statements and tax returns to help support due diligence efforts. These additional items help ensure a borrower has the ability to make monthly payments on their loan while it is in Capstone or Capstone Fund 5's portfolio.
- Experienced Team = We have never lost any principle
As mentioned, Capstone Financial has never lost any principal amount in any default scenario. The Capstone Fund 5 management team has extensive experience in selling bank owned properties and has access to a national network of other experienced real estate professionals to manage the same process profitably when needed.
- 1st Lien Position = Be the bank, Be more secure
Capstone Fund 5 will always be in 1st position on any collateral for a loan. Capstone will not lend above 70% Loan to Value on any of these 1st position liens. While real estate 1st position liens do not guarantee against any capital loss, as proven by the last real estate crash, a conservative valuation approach combined with a conservative Loan to Value limit help ensure reasonable security in Capstone's collateral positions. There will be no 100% loans, no 90% loans, no 80% loans,...70% of retail value MAX!
