Welcome to SELFA

SELFA was founded to serve as a trade organization to represent and promote the interests of European-regulated Secured Lending Funds. SELFA aims to educate sophisticated investors, private bankers and wealth managers across Europe concerning the advantages of European regulated secured lending funds as an alternative to traditional fixed income instruments as a source of attractive, consistent, non-correlated returns for investors

Our Mission

To lead
the secured lending fund industry efforts to educate investors about the benefits of secured lending investing as an alternative to traditional fixed income to achieve attractive, consistent, non-market correlated returns for investors.

Objective

SELFA´s objective is to become the organization of reference for investors worldwide seeking curated, reliable, unbiased, objective information from a non-profit organization concerning the benefits of secured lending investing as well as information concerning the various available alternatives within the full scope of secured lending.

Wealth Managers are immersed in an existential crisis. Quantitative easing has driven yields on high quality corporate bonds to near zero, and those of many sovereign nations to negative values. Traditional fixed income, while offering liquidity, under current interest rate conditions adds credit and duration risk compensated by almost no return, or indeed a negative return.

Private Debt is an alternative that wealth managers cannot afford to ignore.
Secured Lending Funds offer attractive, consistent, non-correlated returns that investors are seeking as an alternative to traditional fixed income or opaque and expensive hedge funds.

The Secure Lending Fund Association is a point of contact between Europe´s leading Secured Lending Funds and wealth managers, private bankers and professional income investors who are willing to escape the liquidity trap, in order to capture the very significant premium for investors seeking attractive, consistent returns as an alternative to traditional fixed income through self-liquidating instruments within the private credit universe.

Model Portfolio

SELFA´s Model Portfolio is designed as an example to help Wealth Managers to preserve and grow their client´s financial wealth through investing in a carefully selected portfolio of European-registered, secured lending SICAVs to achieve reasonable returns on their savings. We emphasize a range of asset-backed lending-based investments anchored in the real economy that offer investors predictable, attractive returns month after month independently of the performance of the global stock and bond markets.

The underlying funds achieve their returns through a highly-diversified selection of asset-backed loans in areas such as UK invoice finance, UK agricultural business loans, aircraft leasing, trade finance lending, European real estate commercial bridge financing backed by first mortgage claims, as well as senior secured loans of European mid-sized companies.
