📆Fixed Term USD Vaults

Learn more about the Lending Mechanics and Flow of Funds behind Fixed Term Vaults in OpenTrade's Treasury Management & Yield Product.


Each Fixed Term USD Vault consists of thirteen (13) 4-week fixed term loans each year where Lenders can make secured loans in USDC to OpenTrade SPC and earn returns in USDC as those loans are repaid. Lenders can automatically roll loans, withdraw early, or take repayment on the loan maturity date.

Fixed Term Vault Mechanics

Making Loans

Lenders can issue loans into a Fixed Term USD Vault by connecting a whitelisted wallet and depositing USDC into the Loan Vault.

➡️Making Loans

Loan Collateral

All loans in Fixed Term USD Vaults are fully collateralised with US Treasury Bills, USD, and USDC. Lenders hold a fully perfected security interest in the loan collateral through the Security Trustee.

The Borrower is restricted to use loan proceeds only to buy eligible collateral and is prohibited from moving collateral outside of the accounts that the Lenders, through the Security Trustee, have a fully perfected security interest in.

Interest Rates & Fees

Interest Rates

Each loan pays fixed interest rate to Lenders over the term of the loan. This is called the Confirmed Loan Fee Rate, which is set for each loan on the Loan Commencement Date.


The Borrower pays fees to the parties supporting the product. These include Advisory Fees (payable to the Investment Advisor, Five Sigma), Platform Fees (payable to the Platform Provider, Open Trade Technology Ltd.).

Early Withdrawal Requests

Early Withdrawal Request can be made by Lenders at anytime and processed on business days during banking hours. Lenders are repaid the net sale proceeds of the collateral behind their loan, less an Early Withdrawal Request Fee.

Automatic Loan Rollover

By default, all Loans will have be set for Automatic Loan Rollover, whereby at the end of a Loan Cycle the principal and interest will compound and roll over into a new loan.

For more information on Loan Rollovers and Rollover Termination Notices, please see:

🟢Loan Rollovers & Rollover Termination

Withdrawing USDC

When a Lender would like to withdraw their USDC, they must first issue either a Rollover Termination Notice or Early Withdrawal Request. Once the loan has been repaid by the Borrower by depositing USDC into the vault, the Lender can redeem their vault tokens for the corresponding amount of USDC.
