Our pool of funds is provided by high net worth individuals, trust funds, family office funds as well as corporate and institutional funds. We act as the direct custodian of these funds provided by our clients who request that we operate with the utmost of privacy and discretion. As a result we normally fund individual projects starting from US$1 million well into the $500 million dollar range.

To make an informed decision to proceed, we will need to receive your business plan, Executive summary, or prospectus that you can send to us, that would be a good place to start.

Looking forward to your response.

Why is this a loan scam?
- It was sent from a totally different email address to the one that you are asked to reply to.
- The email address used is on a domain that was anonymously registered.
- The email was mass-mailed to many recipients using BCC.
- The email gives no indication of who is offering the loan, where they are based or who they are regulated by.
- The ridiculous upper amount of loan being offered.
