In addition, the Company also obtained a senior security loan covering all assets acquired by SW Land & Development, with the understanding that Carlton James’ Borrower - SW Land & Development would seek to increase its portfolio of assets in order to mitigate the Company’s risk.
SW – WATFORD
Launched in January 2015, this was the second of the Company’s investments with SW Land & Development. Located in Watford, North Dakota, Carlton James’ Borrower - SW Land & Development developed a site for a 112-room hotel and conference center that secured the Company’s funding position. The project was unique in as much as the wetland parcel of the site could be adjusted to increase the useable acreage. This meant that even with the downturn of the local oil economy, the site has increased in value since acquisition.
Also, the Company has been further protected by the supplemental collateral provided by its security interest in aspects of SW Land & Development’s other properties. To date, investors in Shares that were secured by the Watford project have been paid a 15% return per year since inception.
