Greenleaf Capital has benefited greatly from our referral sources since
our beginning. Most of Greenleaf Capitals brokers are collection agencies that
collect accounts for their clients on a straight contingency basis. A few axioms regarding
todays marketplace bears mentioning: First, nearly all collection agencies collect
on a contingency basis they make money only when monies are collected. Second,
collection agencies collect only a portion of the accounts assigned to it. Therefore, the
majority of the accounts assigned to collection agencies go to uncollected and the
collection agency (as well as the client) does not receive any monies. Normally, these
accounts are put in suspended status or closed and the client eventually writes off the
account. Instead of taking a complete loss, many collection agencies will refer those
uncollected and closed accounts to Greenleaf Capital for a finders fee.

increasing number of collection agencies are beginning to use this referral framework as a
last-resort source of recovery.
This is a "win" "win" situation for all parties:
- Greenleaf Capital will receive a steady flow of accounts;
- Client will receive a recovery on accounts that could not be collected and will
otherwise be closed and written-off. Also, Greenleaf Capital is responsible for paying the
collection agencys contingency rate in the form of the finders fee.
Greenleaf Capital will pay up to 25% of the purchase price of the
accounts sold as a finders fee.
- Collection Agency will receive a finders fee for accounts that, for whatever reason,
it could not collect an otherwise would not be entitled to any compensation. Also,
referral to Greenleaf Capital to these uncollected accounts is a valuable resource for the
client and further strengthens your relationship with the client as an all-service
