End-of-year is usually a busy time for most businesses, and P2P lending firms seem to confirm this rule. Quite a lot of things happened in this area, with many new features being added to several P2P lending websites.
Swedish Krona loans at Mintos
“Sweden-issued loans listed on the Mintos marketplace by Aasa range from SEK 9 700 to SEK 50 000, with repayment period from 6 to 36 months. The average net return to investors will range from 7 to 13%.” (Mintos newsletter)
While the fluctuations of exchange rate don’t incite me to invest in other currencies than Euro, Swedish investors will probably enjoy this diversification opportunity !
Auto-invest feature for Crowdestate
“Starting from November, Crowdestate’s investors have access to a new, automated investing function – just enable Autoinvest, ensure that there are sufficient funds on your account and an investment order will be made into any opportunity matching the parameters.” (CrowdEstate newsletter)
I updated CrowdEstate review in order to mention this useful feature.
Google 2-step verification for CrowdEstate
“Ever had trouble receiving the SMS code necessary to verify an investment order? Now there is an alternative way – Google Authenticator.” (CrowdEstate newsletter)
Note that activating this feature will also require you to use Google Authenticator at login.
Mozipo Group adds personal loans from Denmark to Mintos
“Denmark-issued Mozipo Group loans listed on the Mintos marketplace will range from EUR 65 to EUR 945. The repayment period will be up to one year. Investors can expect an annual return of 11%-13%.” (Mintos newsletter)
As usual, don’t forget to update your auto-investment settings accordingly !
TWINO reaches €200 million milestone
“This month we have reached an important milestone, EUR 200 000 000 in loans funded through TWINO Investment Platform.” (Twino newsletter)
While I’m not crazy about Twino, it’s great to see them growing. Increased competition between platforms can only be positive for investors !
One million euro milestone reached by DoFinance
“It is my pleasure to announce that DoFinance has attracted an investment of one million euros” (DoFinance newsletter)
I appreciate DoFinance’s simple ofter and enjoy seeing that they’re doing great
Mintos offers ability to filter automatic and manual investments via the originator’s risk category
“(…) you can now tailor your investments according to loan risk categories which are based on loan originators’ unique internal scoring models. Risk categories link expected annual bad debt rate with the interest rate offered to investors on Mintos” (Mintos newsletter)
With this another additional filter available (although currently only for DEBIFO and Capitalia originators), Mintos enhances even more our ability to control our investments.
New Spanish issuer for Mintos
“EuroOne loans available for investment on the Mintos marketplace will range from EUR 300 to EUR 1 000, with a repayment period of up to 30 days. The average net annual return to investors will range from 11 to 13%.” (Mintos newsletter)
Don’t forget to update your auto-invest settings in order to add this issuer !
Mintos offers GBP loans
“Mogo loans available on the Mintos marketplace for investment in GBP will be the same as Poland-issued loans already listed on Mintos in PLN. Loans will range from GBP 254 to GBP 7 350, with a repayment deadline of 6 to 48 months. The annual net return to investors will range from 8.5% to 13%.” (Mintos newsletter)
I was actually surprised to read this announcement as I believed that GBP loans were already available. Just like the investments in Swedish Krona, that’s yet another diversification opportunity for investors
“Next time you log in you will be greeted by a new account Overview; a reworked Auto-Invest Portfolio functionality; identification document upload functionality along with several overall user experience improvements.” (Swaper‘s Facebook page)
Details about the changes can be found here. I’ll soon update Swaper’s review on Alternative Investments in order to reflect these changes. I’ll also check if this removes the need to create several auto-invest portfolios in order to have all the funds invested
