ThinCats borrower, Clearwell launches second bond with CODE Investing

Clearwell Capital Group is a growing business which specialises in providing funding to property developers. The business has borrowed £4.6m of senior secured debt via ThinCats and CODE Investing (16 loans and one bond issue), and has recently launched their latest bond with CODE – Clearwell Bond Two.

Since May 2013, Clearwell has provided £7.77m in finance to support the construction of 265 homes in 29 separate projects across the UK [1]. Of these projects, 13 are now complete, with development works completed on a further three totalling 124 new homes built. Clearwell advanced £3.4m of funds on these 13 projects and received £4.6m in return. This represents a total profit of £1.2m and a money on invested capital of 1.35x or 31% IRR [2].

After successfully raising £448,000 with the Clearwell Bond One, they have launched a second bond with CODE Investing. Clearwell is seeking to raise between £250,000 and £1,000,000. The finance raised will provide further funding to small developers.

Bondholders will receive a 10% (gross) annual interest payment* for three years. The Clearwell Bond Two will be secured by a debenture on the assets of the bond issuer. The bond ranks equally with the previous and future bonds. Debt to ThinCats is owed by a separate group company, with over £2 million already repaid to ThinCats investors to date [3].
