Hey everyone, jumping in to provide more clarity on the Skin-In-The-Game philosophy at FS. As @jomni has pointed out, we do have related parties that invest in the notes we issue. However, they are not afforded any special privileges and they follow the same benefits offered to our investors in our loyalty program (SG-only, at the moment) according to the relevant tier they are in. To further ensure no special privileges, the same information is available at the same time to investors and related parties who are also queued on Auto Invest.
We exclude team members from the credit and risk assessment team, who hold crucial information regarding issuers, from investing altogether, as well as from sharing extraneous information (beyond what's on the fact sheet) on issuers, to other teams.
