There is an investment where I give money to a certain club. This club lends money to people, Jew or non jew for interest.I’m not doing the lending. I receive 5-10% return on my money. I can choose the amount of risk. Is there any way I can do this Hachically? Can I get a shtar iska, ect. Any way lchatchilaa.

Answer:

Being that the vast majority of borrowers are non Jews, you may lend through this forum, as long as you are not aware of the borrower being Jewish. A Heter iska may be difficult to put into effect, however if possible you could approach the people running the club and ask them to agree that any loans involving Jews should work with a heter iska.
