What is the difference between a first and second mortgage?
The main difference between a first and second mortgage is debt seniority.
In the event of a default, both first and second mortgagees have the right to foreclose on the property and sell it on the market for repayment. However, the first mortgagee is at the first position to get the proceeds; and the second mortgagee will be entitled to the remaining amount. Since second mortgages are behind the first mortgage, they are considered more risky and therefore demand a higher return.
How does Ginkgo invest your funds?
Ginkgo invests your funds into a diversified pool of mortgages and the yield to investors is generated by the borrowers’ interest payments
