Grupeer is a relatively new peer to peer lending platform in Europe with very good returns. Grupeer registered in October 2016, and the platform itself launched in February 2017. 1 year later we decided to give it a try and invest a little bit of money at this peer to peer lending platform. Here we are with our review, listing the pro’s and the cons about the platform
Right now, Grupeer is offering business loans and mortgage loans with interest rates ranging 14% to 15%. Grupeer is a marketplace of loan offerings, which means there are other loan originators offering their loans on the marketplace, competing with each other.
- Mortgage loans are secured with collateral.
- Buyback guarantee: When loans turn 60 days late, they will be purchased back by the loan originator. This minimizes the risk to the investor. There is however still exposure to lose capital if the loan originator happens to go bankrupt. To prevent this, diversification is key.
- Interest rates of 15% above alternative peer to peer lending platforms average.
- Employees of Grupeer can be looked up on LinkedIn.
- No crazy attempts or heavy marketing to grow fast. Overall a very stable platform.
- No late loans or defaults after investing for 1 year.
- Mintos is a more mature platform, although with lower returns.
- All loan originators seem fairly new. Most of them registered mid 2017.
There nearly no track record of any of the loan originators, which makes the future of the Grupeer platform questionable. Although, overall, the peer to peer lending communities seem to be in favor for investing at Grupeer.
