P2P Investments Watch List

Platforms on which We Made New Investments

Green means go

P2P platform that started in November 2017 with loans provided by Aventus Group that has a 10-year track record on the lending market. You can invest in loans from Czech Republic, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Poland, Russia, and Ukraine. We have made our first investments in February 2019. So far, we think this is one of the best platforms to start your P2P investments. A full review of the platform is expected during the 2nd quarter.
Latvia based profitable P2P platform with lenders from Sweden, Latvia, Romania, Poland, Czech Republic, and Spain. Available loans are heavily focused on Latvia. First investments have been made in January 2019 and we plan to publish a full review during the 2nd quarter. (Note: if you plan to invest, be sure to look at the special tax rules for investments in Czech Republic and Spain.)

Platforms in Which We Aren’t Fully Confident

Yellow means caution

Founded in 2016, Iuvo-Group is one of the newest P2P platforms and we think it still has some things to prove. Heavily oriented towards loans offered by Bulgarian EasyCredit. We put our investments on hold in March and have now started to withdraw some funds.

[ Review ]

Irish market place for small or medium sized business loans. Robust credit checking process. Transparent. Volumes are, however, very low. Not a single loan available in January. The typical loan runs for 36 months, which may be too long for many investors. We don’t plan any new investments on this platform at this point.

[ Referral link – Get 0.5% ]

Latvia-based P2P investment platform, real estate loans as well as other loans. Low volumes. Most of the time there are no available loans at all.

P2P Platforms In Which We Don’t Invest

Red means stop

Market leading French company offering SME loans. Recent name change from Lendix and low returns (2.5% – 5%) are major reasons for our team members not to invest at this moment.
Bondora is a P2P lending marketplace offering investments in consumers loans from Estonia, Finland and Spain. 10-year track record. Automated tools for investments that are different than many other sites. No buyback guarantees and high number of defaulted loans make this market less ideal.
Crowdestate is an Estonian real estate crowdfunding marketplace. It includes a few SME loans as well. Sign-up process became a wet blanket and killed all interest in this platform.
While initially impressed with the simplicity of the Fast Invest Platform, we stopped investing in December 2018 and started to withdraw funds due to lack of company transparency, concealment of loan originators, and evading answers from support. We left the platform first week in April and have withdrawn all funds.

What is P2P Investments Watch List?

P2P platforms are one of the fastest growing segments in financial services today. Like any other lucrative business, it will attract opportunists.

The team behind P2P-investments.org try to evaluate and review the most common and most popular platforms on the European market today. The purpose is NOT to give financial advice or recommendations, but to share our experiences and findings.

Even when our own investments are at stake or referral programs are in place, we stay unbiased and try to express our honest opinions.

All opinions expressed by P2P Investments on this website are strictly the views of our team.

Some P2P Sites May Come with a Risk

We recognize that some P2P sites can come with a higher risk than others. Sites where no investments are made by the team or our freelance writers are normally not reviewed. These sites include companies with a short track record, low volumes, or low transparency. Such sites end up on our watch list.

Note: appearance on this watch list does not mean that we have decided that a site or platform is less safe for investments.

What Does Green, Yellow, or Red Signals Mean?

Green means “Go”. A site may offer good P2P investment opportunities, but we have not yet made investments or reviewed it. It may be in the pipeline for investments in a near future.

Yellow means “Caution”. We don’t feel comfortable investing on this platform at the moment. Passive entry on our watch list. We may also have postponed or stopped investments for different reasons.

Read means “Stop”. We will not consider this market place for investments or we may have stopped investing and withdrawn all funds.
