Diversify Your IRA with Private Credit and Percent

In today’s unpredictable financial landscape, investors are increasingly looking beyond traditional asset classes to strengthen and diversify their retirement portfolios. One such opportunity lies within the burgeoning sector of alternative investments like private credit. 

This asset class, once only accessible to the ultra high net worth and institutional investors, is experiencing rapid growth and is projected to become a $3.5T market in five years. Percent unlocks the potential of private credit for individual accredited investors, inviting you to diversify your IRA (Individual Retirement Account) with this dynamic asset class.

What is private credit?

Private credit, also known as non-bank lending, encompasses lending activities that occur outside the traditional banking system. Private credit investments involve providing loans to businesses or projects of various sizes, often with terms tailored to their specific needs.

Why consider private credit for your IRA?

  • Enhanced Yield Potential: Private credit investments have historically offered higher yields than traditional fixed-income assets, making them attractive for boosting your retirement savings. 
  • Diversification Benefits: Incorporating private credit into your IRA helps create a well-rounded portfolio by exhibiting low correlation with traditional stocks and bonds to enhance retirement investment diversification.
  • Exclusive Opportunities: Percent gives you access to a world of private credit deals previously only available to institutional investors. Diversify across borrowers, sectors, deal types, and geographies to capture unique investment opportunities.
  • Transparency and Efficiency: Percent brings public-market-like ease and transparency to private credit investing, providing clear insights to help you make informed decisions.

Percent: Your Gateway to Private Credit Investing

Percent is at the forefront of private credit, having facilitated more than $1 billion in transactions across more than 80 borrowers and hundreds of deals. Our platform offers:

  • Attractive Historical Returns: Percent’s deals currently offer a WA APY of 18.53% (as of Feb 29, 2024), with a lifetime WA APY of 13.45%.

  • Broad Diversification: Across deals spanning numerous asset classes and geographies.
