About

Our Mission

Our mission is to become the premier investment destination for alternative fixed-income investing. We are searching for the most innovative forms of direct investment in the marketplace, eliminating the middle layer of our bloated financial system. We aim to enable our clients with new opportunities for public market exposure by creating a diversified hub for alternative fixed income

nickelThe NSR Platform was the first of its kind in the industry, and our team aims to honor that legacy. To do that, we strive to expand our offering with new platform integration in the alternative lending space while maintaining the standard of performance established over the past 10 years.

Our heritage dates back to November 2010, the date our co-Founder Peter Renton wrote his first post at Lend Academy, the definitive news and information site for marketplace lending insiders.

In 2012, our former co-Founder Jason Jones had the brilliant — if somewhat brazen — idea to create the world’s first online lending-focused conference. LendIt is now the premier conference for the global online lending industry, and every year thousands of executives and investors alike gather to discuss the trends in online lending. LendIt now operates events on three continents, creating a year-round virtuous cycle of sharing industry knowledge.

In 2014, we became a Registered Investment Advisor and brought two to market innovative financial products: a private fund and individual managed accounts.

In 2015, we continue to build on our heritage as a nexus of the marketplace lending industry.

NSR Invest has been in close continuous contact with Prosper to ensure inventory is available to NSR clients.

In 2020, Michael Earlywine joined our company as a cofounder to bring extensive investment experience in both public and alternative asset classes to expand NSR’s focus into various investments. Our goal for this expansion is to evolve into the primary hub for investing in the alternative fixed income space.

We are working to integrate emerging platforms in real estate investing and consumer inventory factoring, identifying their unique yield and risk characteristics.
In parallel with these efforts, the NSR team is focusing on building model portfolios based on publicly traded securities that will augment the alternative fixed income space. These model portfolios aim to provide yield, diversification, and market exposure, while our trading platform puts our clients’ money to work in other optimized alternative fixed income portfolios. This will make NSR Invest a valuable and diversified alternative investment destination.

Team

Part of our magic is that it’s really, really great to be a member of the NSR Invest team. We love what we do, and it shows. Every day we wake up on fire to accomplish our mission, and every night we return home satisfied that we have moved boulders. We attract highly talented and driven people and provide them with the resources to unleash their awesomeness on the world.
