Quanloop Usaldusfond, the Borrower, is a limited partnership fund registered according to the Investment Funds Act of the Republic of Estonia.
A limited partnership fund may manage its own assets or enter into a management contract with a fund manager. Only a fund manager which has received an activity licence pursuant to the Investment Funds Act or which has been issued an activity licence of a UCITS or alternative fund manager in another EEA Member State or which has registered its operation with the Financial Supervision Authority may act as a limited partnership fund manager or a general partner of a limited partnership fund which manages its own assets. A limited partnership fund which manages its own assets shall not be regarded as a self-managed fund for the purposes of Directive 2011/61/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council.
Quanloop Usaldusfond is managed by Bondkick AS, a public limited company registered as a limited partnership fund manager with the Financial Supervision Authority of the Republic of Estonia. Bondkick AS registration is valid, as disclosed on this page.
Business lending, being the Quanloop Usaldusfond business activity, is run under its fund manager supervision and its license to operate as a financial institution. Bondkick AS has a valid operating license no. FFA000250, as disclosed on this page.
Consumer lending is not being offered; should Quanloop Usaldusfond decide to offer consumer lending, where a consumer is a natural person who concludes a transaction not related to independent economic or professional activities, as stated in § 1 (5) of the Estonian Law of Obligations Act, it should apply for an authorisation to operate as a creditor as outlined in the Creditors and Credit Intermediaries Act of the Republic of Estonia. As of today, Quanloop Usaldusfond has no plans for consumer lending; otherwise, an authorisation will be applied.
The Investor and Quanloop Usaldusfond enter into the Loan Agreement according to the Law of Obligations Act of the Republic of Estonia as follows: the Investor makes an offer to enter into the Loan Agreement for the term of 24 hours, the annual interest rate of their choice and the principal of one (1) euro, and Quanloop Usaldusfond may, if the proposal fits their need and expectation, accept to enter into the Loan Agreement with the Investor. With reference to the Law of Obligations Act of the Republic of Estonia, accepting the debt financing offered by the Investor, being the primary source of capital for Quanloop Usaldusfond, is not a licensed activity for the fund, and offering the debt financing to the fund the Investor is not a licensed activity for the Investor. No Act nor a Directive limit the number of Loan Agreements signed by Quanloop Usaldusfond, nor the total capital sourced.
Quanloop AS acts as the introductory service for the Investor and Quanloop Usaldusfond, ensuring the parties get familiar with each other before making and accepting an offer to lend money. Quanloop Usaldusfond does not in any way receive money from the public for the purposes of depositing or to receiving repayable funds in any other manner or does not make any public proposals to receive money from the public for the purposes of depositing or to receiving repayable funds in any other manner. The money transferred by the Investor is thereby a property handed over for the performance of the mandate for the purposes of § 626 of the Estonian Law of Obligations Act. The respective amount of money in the bank is, by its nature, a claim (against the bank) that Quanloop AS has acquired in its name but on behalf of the Investor and only with the purpose of using it for the performance of the mandate. Quanloop AS shall have the right and obligation to make transfers, deductions from and inclusions to the Investor's account on the Platform to perform the Investor's obligations arising from the General Terms, the Loan Agreement and other agreements entered into by the Investor. The Investor hereby irrevocably authorises Quanloop AS to debit and credit the Investor's account on the Platform as outlined in the General Terms, the Loan Agreement or any other agreement concluded via the Platform.
