Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL QUESTIONS

About integratedCAPITAL

What is the role of integratedCAPITAL?

integratedCAPITAL is a provider of lending systems, fintech services and funding from some of Australia's Richest 250 Listed Individuals and Family Offices.

We provide approved borrowers access to direct funding not available through traditional lenders and Rich Listed High Net Worth Individuals and Family Offices access to greater returns on their capital.

Our role is to deliver both finance and technology as a complete fintech solution using our E2EFiPLATFORM™.

What is E2EFi™?

E2EFi™ is short for ‘end to end’ finance. It is a form of finance that does not rely on a single central financial intermediary such as a bank and instead utilises software to achieve internal control and trust. It refers to traditional financial transactions which can co-exist from start to finish on open source distributed networks. E2EFi™ is the overlaying of smart contract technology onto legacy systems.

What is divisia?

‘divisia’ is a word we use for the state reached by the smallest number of participants necessary to embed internal control into a financial transaction via division of duties. Division of duties is the concept of having more than one person required to complete a task so as to prevent fraud and error and to build trust.

A ‘divisia’ on our system is a consortium of parties to financial transactions who can achieve internal control through agreement of the terms, conditions, roles and tasks necessary to complete those transactions from start to finish.

Our software platform maps and encodes the division of duties inherent within traditional financial transactions into a set of processes to be completed end to end (E2E) to achieve ‘divisia’.

How does integratedCAPITAL make a profit?

integratedCAPITAL is currently a profitable platform built without external funding. Progress to date has been achieved entirely from revenue derived from licensing transactions.

Who operates integratedCAPITAL?

integratedCAPITAL is owned and operated in Brisbane, Australia and is a member of the integrated CAPITAL Group. Richard McKeon is the founder and director of integratedCAPITAL. He is a Chartered Accountant with extensive experience arranging and managing finance for some of Australia's 250 Rich Listed Individuals and Family Offices.

What are smart contracts?

Smart contracts are contracts whose terms are recorded in a computer language instead of legal language. Smart contracts can be automatically executed by a computing system, such as a suitable distributed-ledger system.

What are loyalty rewards and points?

We issue iCAP Points as part of our licensing system. Some of these points are released as a reward once a transaction has been completed as planned. For example, repaying a loan on time should more than cover due diligence and loan preparation costs for a subsequent loan of similar size. iCAP Points can be used for any services available on any of our websites.
Registration and Identification

Why do I need to be identified?

Digital execution of legal documents and the use of e-conveyancing systems requires verification of identity. Additionally, integratedCAPITAL must verify the identity of its clients to comply with Australian anti-money laundering and counter terrorism standards.

How does the identification work?

integratedCAPITAL uses WebVOI, a verification of identity (VOI) service provided by InfoTrack. WebVOI employs technology driven validation such as facial recognition and Document Verification Service (DVS) to confirm identity. Completing a WebVOI takes 3 easy steps and can be done remotely from anywhere with an internet connection.

BORROWERS

General

What are the advantages when borrowing through integratedCAPITAL?

The advantages are that the sources of capital are deep and capable. They will settle when they agree to fund a transaction. In addition, our E2EFiPLATFORM™ is transparent and built to eliminate unnecessary risks which is advantageous for both borrowers and lenders. Finally, we have a loyalty rewards and points system which results in free due diligence and loan preparation costs for subsequent loans when the original transaction completes as planned.

How can I become a borrower at integratedCAPITAL?

integratedCAPITAL is only accepting new borrowers by invitation at this time. If you are interested in becoming a borrower, please refer to our Private Lending Guidelines for more information.

Can I take out a loan for any reason?

We assess applications for business and investment purposes such as property developments and ventures. We do not offer any funding which is required to be regulated under the National Consumer Credit Protection act.

How does the credit assessment process work?

We evaluate all borrowers to establish creditworthiness. This may include credit inquiries or searches of the borrower or any of their associated entities.

What type of facilities does integratedCAPITAL offer?

integratedCAPITAL offers senior debt finance up to $50 million per facility (additional funding considered on a case by case basis). All loans are secured by 1st registered mortgage over property. We offer funding for the following approved purposes.

What transaction costs and outlays must I pay as a borrower?

Borrowers incur the costs associated with arranging and managing their first loan. This includes lender fees, divisia licensing and other professional fees such as legal or certification costs. For subsequent loans, these costs can be reduced to zero using our loyalty rewards and points system.
Applying for a Loan

Who will finance my loan?

Your loan is financed by high net-worth individuals and Family Offices who would rather lend their money directly to borrowers than to take out term deposits with Banking Institutions which are returning historically low interest rates.

How does the application process work?

Applications are submitted on our Proposals platform. To begin an application, you will need to be registered as a user and then submit the following information:

  • Company name
  • Property address
  • Finance Synopsis
  • Feasibility study or business case
  • Breakdown of proposed funding requirements

We match this information with our Product Term Sheets and provide you with a selection of funding options for your application.

If your application submission is acceptable and complies with one of the Term Sheets selected, we will issue a conditional Letter of Offer.

Upon acceptance of this Offer, we will commence due diligence on the information supplied. We may contact you during this time to request additional information.

The Letter of Offer will specify an estimated amount required to cover due diligence and loan preparation costs and will be payable prior to commencement of these activities.

The completion of the application process will result in the issue of facility documents and scheduling of funding and loan origination.

How is my interest rate determined?

Your interest rate will be determined on a risk assessed basis. It will typically be aligned with our Private Lending Guidelines and product term sheets, ranging from 5.5%-9.0% p.a. depending on the Loan to Value Ratio (LVR).

What information is shared with third parties?

Once you have accepted the conditional letter of offer, the details of your loan will be shared with service providers such as lawyers and engineers as well as prospective lenders.

Can I engage finance professionals to prepare my application?

As a borrower, you are welcome to use your finance broker, accountant, solicitor or consultant to prepare and lodge a loan application. Any costs associated with the application process will remain the responsibility of the borrower. You can elect to have these disbursed when the loan settles.
Loan Repayment

How do I repay my loan?

Interest on your loan accumulates as specified in your facility documents up to but not exceeding the facility limit. Repayments will be required during the term should the loan balance exceed the facility limit. Your loan must be repaid within the term. You are generally obliged to apply project revenue toward repayment of the loan. Repayments are to be made directly to your lender’s nominated bank account unless otherwise agreed.

What happens if I fail to repay my loan within the term?

If the loan is not repaid within the term, an event of default occurs. This attracts the higher interest rate specified in your loan documents. Prior to this, you may apply for an extension to the term. However, fees and charges may apply. Please be aware of your obligations under the terms of all facility documentation.

Can I pay my loan back early?

You may pay your loan back at any time. Some facilities may include minimum interest charges or may be renewed on an ongoing basis but in general, we encourage borrowers to return funds as soon as they are able.
Transaction Costs and Outlays

Which services are free?

Creating, comparing, verifying and submitting a loan proposal is a free service.

How do I pay transaction costs and outlays?

Your initial payment deposit is credited to your loan account and used to cover due diligence and loan preparation costs. Transaction costs incurred once the loan has commenced are charged to your loan account to be repaid with the rest of the balance. For subsequent loans, these costs can be reduced to zero using our loyalty rewards and points system.

LENDERS

General

How can I become a lender at integratedCAPITAL?

Our primary sources of capital are some of Australias 250 Rich Listed Individuals and Family Offices. integratedCAPITAL accepts new lenders by invitation only at this time. If you are interested in becoming a lender with integratedCAPITAL, please contact us.

Why must I submit bank account details when registering with integratedCAPITAL?

We need to know the lender, the name of the lending entity and the bank account from which funds will be transferred when loans are funded. Your funds never leave your account unless you authorise the transfer, you are completely in control of your funds.
Risk vs Return

How does integratedCAPITAL manage risk?

Our E2EFiPLATFORM™ removes systemic risk from transactions and embeds internal control by detecting, correcting and preventing errors.

Is there a minimum loan size?

$1 million is generally the minimum loan size. integratedCAPITAL does not assess applications for smaller loans unless they are part of an ongoing arrangement.

Is my commitment to fund a loan binding?

Yes. Once facility documents have been signed, you are obliged to provide funds in accordance with the terms they contain.

What facilities are offered and are they fully dispersed?

We offer the following facilities and dispersement will vary depending on the product type. Some facilities are drawn down progressively throughout the duration of the approved purpose (e.g. Development Finance) while others are fully disbursed at settlement (e.g. Residual Stock Finance). Please refer to our product term sheets for more information.

How do I receive interest and capital repayments from borrowers?

Interest is capitalised, meaning there are no regular interest repayments. Both interest and principal accumulate within the facility limit and are repaid using revenue from the borrower's project. The borrower is generally obliged to apply revenue to the repayment of their loan.

Could I lose my capital?

Senior debt is serviced as the highest priority and can usually be readily recovered. However, as a sophisticated investor, lenders should be aware that loss of capital is always a risk. Lenders must be satisfied with the representations and warranties made by the borrower before they agree to provide a loan.

What happens when a borrower fails to make payment or pays late?

If a borrower fails to repay their loan during the term, an event of default will occur. This attracts the higher interest rate specified in your loan documents. Borrowers may apply for an extension to the term, in which case the terms of the original agreement will expire and a new one will be negotiated. If an event of default is not remedied, you are granted the right to seek repayment of the loan by controlling the mortgaged property or other assets of the borrower.

How does a high level of diversification affect my earnings?

As a funder you should allocate your capital to as many loan projects as possible, creating a diversified portfolio.

What happens to my funds in the event integratedCAPITAL no longer exists?

In our absence, the loan documents and mortgage which secure your funds will remain. Your loan is still on foot and the rights and obligations of the parties do not change. Administration of the loan will need to be agreed upon between you and the borrower.
Transaction Costs and Outlays

What transaction costs and outlays must I pay as a lender?

Lenders incur zero fees on their capital. All transaction costs and outlays are charged to the loan account of the borrower and repaid with the rest of the loan when finalised.

Please note that for subsequent loans, these borrower costs and outlays can be reduced to zero using our loyalty rewards and points system thereby incentivising loan repayment within term.

What services are free as a lender?

Lenders do not usually incur any share of costs and outlays.

Loan agreements are generally worded such that the borrower will absorb all transaction costs and outlays. All services rendered for administration of the loan including legal document preparation and platform licensing are paid by the borrower.

For subsequent loans, these borrowing costs can be reduced to zero using our loyalty rewards and points system.
