WDC Credit Fund, LLC and WDC Qualified Credit Fund, LLC

Here is a brief description of this strategy… Think “Visa” but with a little less risk. This is unsecured consumer credit where we focus on elective healthcare procedures where patients require follow-up visits, such as braces or orthodontics. The follow-up visits are what give us greater comfort that consumers will continue to pay and why we think of it as being a little less risky than regular old Visa. Essentially, most elective healthcare offices are only serving about 20-40% of their market because 60-80% of the population struggle to afford a $5k procedure and doctors can only balance sheet so much on their personal books. We have partnered with a family group who has been lending into this market for almost 10 years, to more than 1 million patients, financing about $1.9B in procedures. Together, we work with the largest regional groups in the country to provide an affordable solution to the 60-80% of the population that could not previously obtain access to several elective healthcare procedures. WDC Credit fund targets an unlevered IRR of 24.5% and the Qualified Credit fund is slightly better.

WDC credit fund will begin to kick out quarterly dividends in Q1 of 2025; and WDC Qualified Credit fund is designed specifically for retirement accounts where taxes are deferred, and will not be paying dividends for the first 3 years so as to maximize the compounding benefit to investors.
