Black Box Lending

Black Box Lending® is a term we use for hands-off investing in Ablrate loans where investors funds are managed through a regulated  Experienced Investor Fund.

Black Box Lending is for expert investors and is not covered by the Financial Conduct Authority but through a regulated fund in Gibraltar. Ablrate does not operate the fund and is not remunerated by the fund.

What is black box lending?

ASMX Fund PPC Limited is a regulated Gibraltar EIF (experienced investor fund) fund which manages investors funds in order to achieve a target rate of 8% underwriting loans on the Ablrate platform and providing liquidity to the Loan Exchange by buying and selling loans. The fund will be able to invest in loans that need to be completed quickly or are a larger than normal.  The fund earns interest on the loans it is invested in and also shares in Ablrate’s income from loans it has underwritten.


*Black Box Lending is currently available for those who meet the criteria as a professional, sophisticated or HNW investor with €50,000 minimum, if you have taken advice from a regulated financial advisor, or €100,000 if you have not. Your capital is at risk.

The fund does not have enhanced rates, any profit over the target rate is shared 50/50 with the investor and the fund owners. I.e if a return of 11% is achieved, the lender will receive 9.5% and the fund will receive 1.5%. Ablrate does not receive any income from the fund.
