Our Team
“We believe risk must be analyzed on a loan-by-loan basis. In 2008, we created a database that maps every one of our investments: who the bonds traded to, what the coverage was. Today, Kore has a database with millions of records. By looking at every loan, every payment from every borrower, we can track payment history and delinquency. We take nothing at face value and nothing for granted.”
