Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
Investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.
The Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The prospectus (and summary prospectus, if available) contains this and other important information about the investment company, and it may be obtained by calling 844.569.4750. Read it carefully before investing.
The default history for marketplace lending is limited and future defaults may be higher than historical defaults.
RiverNorth Marketplace Lending Corporation is distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC. RiverNorth Capital Management, LLC and Quasar Distributors, LLC are not affiliated.
NOT FDIC INSURED • NO BANK GUARANTEE • MAY LOSE VALUE
Pursuant to Rule 23c-3 of the 1940 Act, the Fund must make a quarterly repurchase offer of at least 5% of the Fund’s outstanding shares. The Fund’s Board of Directors will set the actual level of the quarterly repurchase offers. It is possible that a repurchase offer may be oversubscribed, in which case Shareholders may only have a portion of their shares repurchased. Subject to the above, quarterly repurchase offers and liquidity are limited.
Distributions may consist of income, capital gains and return of capital.
Daily subscriptions are subject to caps per management’s discretion. There are many differences between 1940 Act Funds and Private Funds. Private Funds are subject to lock-ups, which generally limit liquidity. 1940 Act Funds provide more frequent liquidity. RMPLX will provide quarterly liquidity. Private Funds generally have higher fees than 1940 Act Funds because they typically charge performance-based incentive fees in addition to the Management Fee. 1940 Act Funds do not charge incentive fees. Private Funds have certain tax benefits that 1940 Act Funds do not have.
Unlike marketplace lending assets, other traditional fixed income assets represented are traded via the over-the-counter markets. In terms of risk of default, high yield has a greater risk of default than high grade. AAA-rated ABS bonds have a low risk of loss. US Treasuries are guaranteed by the US Government. All assets are listed as taxable in the US. US Treasuries are exempt from state and local taxes.
Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a fixed income investment to a change in interest rates. Duration is expressed as a number of years.
Coupon is the annual interest rate paid on a bond/loan.
Yield is the income return on an investment. This refers to the interest or dividends received from a security and is usually expressed annually as a percentage based on the investment's cost, its current market value or its face value.
Annual percentage yield (APY) is a normalized representation of an interest rate, based on a compounding period of one year.
IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION
Investing in the Shares involves certain risks, including loss of principal, that are described in the “Risks” section of the prospectus, including the following:
The Fund’s Shares will not be immediately listed on an exchange and it is not anticipated that a secondary market for its Shares will develop unless the Shares are listed on an exchange. Thus, an investment in the Fund is not suitable for investors who might need access to the money they invest for several years or longer.
The Fund may decline to accept any subscription requests for any reason regardless of the order in which such subscription request was submitted to the Fund in a particular subscription period.
If a borrower is unable to make its payments on a loan (defined as Marketplace Lending Instruments in the Fund’s prospectus), the Fund may be greatly limited in its ability to recover any outstanding principal and interest under such loan, as (among other reasons) the Fund may not have direct recourse against the borrower or may otherwise be limited in its ability to directly enforce its rights under the loan, whether through the borrower or the platform through which such loan was originated, the loan may be unsecured or under-collateralized, and/or it may be impracticable to commence a legal proceeding against the defaulting borrower.
The Marketplace Lending Instruments in which the Fund may invest will not typically be guaranteed or insured by any third-party and will not typically be backed by any governmental authority.
Prospective borrowers supply a variety of information regarding the purpose of the loan, income, occupation and employment status (as applicable) to the lending platforms. As a general matter, platforms do not verify the majority of this information, which may be incomplete, inaccurate, false or misleading. Prospective borrowers may misrepresent any of the information they provide to the platforms, including their intentions for the use of the loan proceeds.
Marketplace Lending Instruments are not rated by the nationally recognized statistical rating organizations (“NRSROs”). Such unrated instruments may be comparable in quality to securities falling into any of the ratings categories used by such NRSROs. Accordingly, certain of the Fund’s unrated investments could constitute a highly risky and speculative investment, similar to an investment in “junk” bonds.
The Marketplace Lending Instruments in which the Fund may invest may have varying degrees of credit risk and the Fund will not be restricted by any borrower credit criteria or credit risk limitation. There can be no assurance that payments due on underlying Marketplace Loans will be made.
At any given time, the Fund’s portfolio may be substantially illiquid and subject to increased credit and default risk. The Shares therefore should be purchased only by investors who could afford the loss of the entire amount of their investment. Investors should consider their investment goals, time horizons and risk.
The Fund's fees and expenses may be considered high and, as a result, such fees and expenses may offset the Fund's profits. For a summary of certain of these and other risks, please see the "Risk Factors" section of the prospectus.
