A Joint Venture Funding Structure
FLOCK Specialty Finance uses an off-balance sheet structure for funding portfolios.
Portfolios that FLOCK funds are placed in a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that is controlled by our clients. Our legal documents create a structured agreement between FLOCK and our partners that:
- Aligns our interests
- Creates an opportunity for favorable tax treatment
- Creates collateralization for future purchases

Maximizing Our Customers’ Profits:
The Power of Leverage
Terms and investment expectations are collaboratively determined between FLOCK and our client.
The cash flow, net of servicing fees is returned pari-passu to FLOCK and our client until principal and preferred return are achieved – after which the payment priority switches to a profit share, greatly increasing our client’s ROI and IRR.
