How do the profits get taxed?

We are not qualified to discuss tax issues. You should speak to an accountant about this. We can also speak with your accountant should you wish us to clarify any questions.

Do all projects have senior debt?

The debt is the responsibility of the developer and is agreed before we launch a project to our pool of investors. In case personal guarantees are required to secure the loan, they are the responsibility of the developer
