TRACY MABONE, Chief compliance officer
Ascenta Finance corp.
Tracy Mabone has over 20 years of experience in the legal and financial industries. She ensures that Ascenta Finance meets all compliance regulations and is the key contact for investors and facilitates the closing of financings for the firm.
“Ascenta’s business to date has primarily been the offering of high risk public equity opportunities to an accredited investor audience. The bond offering from Yesterpay is different - both from the fixed rate of return perspective and that investors have the flexibility to choose one, two or three year terms. Also, because the bonds are issued under an Offering Memorandum, they are available to a much broader range of investors and investors can participate for as little as a $1,000 investment.”
