Recourse is a type of loan that allows the lender to recover against the personal assets of a party in the event of default by the borrower to the extent of the shortfall between the amount recovered from the underlying asset and the amount owed.
For example, if an investor has a $1,000,000 recourse loan against a property which is foreclosed upon and the lender is only able to sell the property for $750,000, then the lender may seek personal recourse against the investor to the extent of the deficiency, in this case, $250,000. With a full recourse loan, a lender can typically pursue all assets of the borrower up to the full amount of the debts. A recourse loan could alternatively be structured as partial or limited recourse, in which case, the lender may generally only pursue assets specifically listed in the loan documents, and/or collect up to a certain percentage or dollar amount. For instance, if the above example had limited recourse of $100,000, then the lender would only be entitled to collect $100,000 from the borrower personally, even though the deficiency amount is $250,000.

Investing in alternative assets involves higher risks than traditional investments and is suitable only for sophisticated investors. Alternative investments are often sold by prospectus that discloses all risks, fees, and expenses. They are not tax efficient and an investor should consult with his/her tax advisor prior to investing. Alternative investments have higher fees than traditional investments and they may also be highly leveraged and engage in speculative investment techniques, which can magnify the potential for investment loss or gain and should not be deemed a complete investment program. The value of the investment may fall as well as rise and investors may get back less than they invested.
