Please consult your tax professional for any personalized tax information.
The displayed and advertised target return for all offerings on the CorvoDirect platform are net of our management and listing fees.
CorvoDirect collects an on average 1-2% management fee on all offerings from investors annually. These fees are disclosed on the individual offering pages for each investment opportunity.
There are also flat annual fund expenses investors are responsible for per investment (these are paid from initial interest distributions from your investment) that vary slightly depending on the legal structure of the offering (either SPV or BPDN structure).

CorvoDirect provides investors access to alternative investments, typically with low correlation** to the stock market. Previously, investments of this kind have been reserved for hedge funds and large institutions.
We work with experienced originators who provide a loan for a project (or need) that is collateralized by an underlying asset from the associated borrower, such as a real estate property, assets or credit backed assets.
Our offerings currently focus on a number of alternative asset classes, including Real Estate, Credit, Commercial and Consumer Finance, and Venture. You can learn more about each of our asset classes in our Resource Center.
*CorvoDirect offerings provide typically low correlation to the broader markets, meaning that they tend to be largely unaffected by whether the stock market is rising or falling
While the majority of our offerings have predefined payment schedules, i.e. monthly or quarterly payments, some investments distribute interest and principal based on the occurrence of certain events. The anticipated payment schedule is always outlined on the offering page of the investment offering as well as the Series Note Supplement or Investment Memorandum.
Offerings with predefined payment schedules pay at regular intervals (monthly, bi-weekly, quarterly, etc.). The offering page of each investment details the exact payment schedule. The offering page also outlines whether investors can expect principal payments throughout the duration of the investment or at maturity of the deal. It is important to understand that a monthly or bi-weekly payment schedule does not necessarily mean that payments will be made on the first and fifteenth of each month. Check out this infographic for more information.
Some offerings are structured with an event-based payment schedule. Event-based payment schedules are commonplace for portfolios of pre-settlement litigation advances. An event-based payment schedule means that investors receive payments as soon as individual cases within a portfolio settle.
Payment dates and amounts cannot be pre-determined because the timing of the settlement of the underlying cases is uncertain. Given that these investment offerings are made up of multiple underlying cases, an investor can expect to receive multiple payments throughout the term of the investment. For litigation finance investment offerings with one underlying case, you can expect to receive one payment of principal and interest upon final settlement.
Payments are not guaranteed and may be subject to delay or total loss. See the risk factors for each applicable offering for more details.
Currently, for most investments, you don’t need to pre-fund your CorvoDirect Wallet. Once you submit an investment allocation, an ACH draft from your external bank account will be initiated if there are not enough funds—or no funds—in your account. This ACH transfer will be initiated at the time of your investment request or if you select to delay, 2 days after making the request.
You can choose to prefund your CorvoDirect Wallet ahead of making an investment request. Pre-funding your Wallet will shorten the time it takes to process your investment request, which means you will start earning interest sooner.
