We developed the HansonEP Score in order to help our investors easily compare important aspects of each of our deals. When analyzing each asset we take into account all of the qualities below and weigh them together in order determine whether or not we want to pursue an opportunity.

The HansonEP Score allows investors to visually analyze each aspect of an asset quickly, while also giving them a quick overview of our opinion on the opportunity. If you would like to receive more information on the specifics of why we ranked each quality of an asset the way we did, Contact Us Now to learn more
