The above evaluations were made by using The Forge prices as reference.
Due to the lack of performance data, lack of collateral and large size of the investment, the Auditor classifies this investment as high risk.
Please notice how “high risk” does not mean “unsafe”. It’s two different concepts. Talking about high risk of bad performance, risk of real life complications etc. is one thing, the ever present chance of scam is another. The latter cannot be prevented by an audit, which only acts as first line deterrent.
Indy Corp Alpha as a whole seems competent (skills wise and player wise) enough to deliver on their statements and have past positive records. Their business is in a growth phase.
Basically, the Investee looks like having the ability to successfully honor the IPO. Notice how an audit may only evaluate the ability or potential of an Investee to succesfully honor a bond / IPO.
The Auditor suggests perspective Investors NOT to invest their full capital on this venture but to offer what they could eventually afford to lose.
