4.     Why would I sell my book?

  • Changing aggregators
  • Cashing for retirement
  • Leaving the industry
  • Accessing working capital
  • Accessing capital to expand their business or pay down debt

Or it may be as simple as they want to take up new opportunity. Selling your trail books allows you to trade what is effectively a diminishing cash flow for a single or series of payments now. It takes away some uncertainty of income and allows you to access funds now rather than waiting for monthly trail receipts.


5.     How much can I get for my trail books?

It depends on many variables that can affect the value you could obtain, which include, among other things, the size of the book, the age of the loans, the types of loans, and the amortisation rate.
