  • Private and conditional. Unauthorised distribution strictly prohibited. ©2013 Symfonie Capital LLC 7 Key Risks • Deterioration of Credit Quality – During recessions default rates are likely to increase. We try to manage this risk by diversifying the portfolio among many countries, many borrowers, varying the range of credit profiles in the portfolio and by increasing weighting in relatively safer, more liquid assets. • Poor Credit Scoring Models – A service provider that errs with the credit scoring model risks mis-classifying clients by systematically over estimating or under estimating the probability of default. We manage this risk in the due diligence and monitoring processes, where we evaluate each provider’s credit scoring model. We also track and monitor each providers overall portfolio statistics so we can observe changes over time. • Poor Service Provider Quality – The Peer to Peer and Microfinance lending processes hinge on the quality of the service provider. We manage this risk through due diligence on providers and by diversifying among many providers • Reinvestment Risk – Peer to peer lending is becoming a more attractive investment vehicle. At times the service providers may have a queue of investors waiting to put cash to work. We manage this risk by diversifying among websites and by having the flexibility to invest in other fixed income assets.
  • Private and conditional. Unauthorised distribution strictly prohibited. ©2013 Symfonie Capital LLC 8 Scoring & Reporting – Basis for Credit Risk Models • Consumer credit scoring agencies exist in most countries around the world • Multinational consumer credit scoring agencies include FICO, Experian, TransUnion, Equifax, • Key variables include: – Payment history – Amount owed – Length of history – Credit utilisation – Number of credit lines open – New credit enquiries Consumer credit registries operate in most countries around the world. Banks and credit providers transmit and receive credit data regularly. Standard practice among P2P marketplace providers is to present each borrower’s credit report detail and credit score. The providers offer not only data from a nationally recognised agency, but also their own credit score calculation.

Unauthorised distribution strictly prohibited. ©2013 Symfonie Capital LLC 17 Loan Default Rate Overview •Loan losses rates are based on total monetary issuance to date • Prosper, Lending Club and Zopa have the longest history and the biggest loan pools • Lending Club reports having made about 21,000 class C loans with since 2009 with an average annual interest rate of 14.5%, of which about 3.6% charged off. • Prosper reports having made about 6,000 class C loans since 2009 with average annual interest rate of 20% of which about 3.1% have been charged off. • Symfonie estimates that as many as 10-15% of the higher risk category loans are charged off over a period of 3 to 5 years. The combination of high interest rates among peforming loans and payments of principal and interest between origination and the time to default in the non-peforming loans compensates, accounting for positive investment performance over the life of the loan pool.

  • Private and conditional. Unauthorised distribution strictly prohibited. ©2013 Symfonie Capital LLC 18 Investment Methodology - Loans • P2P Provider Governance – we analyse each market provider’s corporate structure, rules, policies, procedures prior to committing funds. • Credit model – we evaluate each P2P market provider’s credit scoring model prior to committing funds. • Disposable Income vs. Credit - we review borrower credit metrics and focus on overall debt level, debt/income ratios, monthly payment/disposable income, residential and employment situation. • Secondaries -– most P2P market providers offer secondary trading in loans to enable lenders to find liquidity. We exploit opportunities to buy performing loans from secondary market listing that trade at discount and offer higher yield. • Relative Value – we compare default losses across credit score categories and identify favorable risk/reward ratios. • Credit Deterioration – where we believe credit quality in particular class of borrowers is likely to deteriorate we look for exit opportunities in the secondary market. • Low return potential – we avoid the thin margin, premium loan segment, where risks of underestimated default rates are high. • Relative Value – we compare risk/reward in P2P loans versus other credit opportunities. Where P2P loans don’t reflect good value, we focus on classical credit securities. BUYS SELLS All things equal, Symfonie prefers to invest with P2P marketplace providers that facilitate liquidity by organising secondary trades in P2P loans. There can be no assurance, however, that the fund will have the ability to liquidate its investments through secondary trading.

  • Private and conditional. Unauthorised distribution strictly prohibited. ©2013 Symfonie Capital LLC 20 Investment Methodology - Bonds • Credit Worthiness – with in-depth research we select issuers based on their ability and willingness to pay interest and principal. • High yield – we focus on bonds with relatively high yields. • Capital gain potential - we look for bonds whose credit quality is likely to improve over time. • Relative Value – we look for bonds that represent good relative value we feel the market has not fully priced in. • Special Situations – we look for bonds priced at deep discounts to par that offer substantial prospect of capital gain. • Credit Deterioration – where we believe credit quality is likely to deteriorate we sell. • Low return potential – where we believe a bond no longer offers adequate return we sell. • Capital loss potential - when we decide there are significant downside risks we sell. • Relative Value – when we decide a bond represents poor value relative to other opportunities we sell. BUYS SELLS The bond market offers credit investment opportunities that may offer better value and better liquidity than the P2P loan market. The Fund will have an allocation to government and corporate bonds either to complement the core P2P strategy or to exploit particularly attractive opportunities to hold bonds of companies that are performing and improving in credit quality.
