Prague, 8 November 2021 – Thanks to the savings during the pandemic, households have an unprecedented amount of money saved on their accounts. Many of them are therefore thinking about how to protect their savings from inflation and are looking for investment opportunities. One way is investing in secured loans, which is becoming increasingly popular. This is also shown by the data of the Czech FinTech company Bondster, through which people have already invested more than € 80 million.
Bondster surpasses the € 80 million mark
Bondster.com is a Czech investment platform founded in 2017 which mediates online investments in loans. By doing so, it offers an alternative to traditional investing. In order to decrease risk, the loans can be secured by, for example, real estate, personal property or the buyback guarantee. This year, investors have invested about 70 million crowns through the platform each month, with the total amount of money invested through the platform since its inception until now being more than € 80 million. The total number of investors on the platform currently exceeds 13,600. Together, they have earned over € 3,4 million in interest.
“We are very happy that together with our investors we managed to exceed the milestone of € 80 million. What also played a role was the interest offered on loans, which averages 13.9% in our country and is thus significantly higher compared to traditional investment instruments. We believe that in the coming months we will be able to at least maintain the current trend and that we will exceed the €120 million mark in the first half of next year, which means an increase of 50 % in growth,” ” says Bondster’s CEO Pavel Klema.
Loans secured by Bitcoins
Investments secured by Bitcoin contributed significantly to the growth. Until recently, Bondster has been the only platform of its kind to offer such a unique product in the field of P2P investments. These differ from other loans, which are usually secured by, for example, real estate or movable property, in the form of collateral. There was unprecedented interest among investors in the first Bitcoin-secured loans that Bondster offered on its platform, and they attracted the necessary investment in a single day. Bondster has now placed new ones on the platform and is continuously updating its offer of these loans.
“Loans secured by Bitcoins have aroused interest not only among our current investors but also attracted a number of new ones. In the last two months, we have seen almost a two-digit growth in the number of new investors,” adds Bondster’s CEO Pavel Klema.
What attracts investors to P2P?
What investors from the general public mainly appreciate about P2P investments is the possibility of hedging against inflation. For many of them, however, it is also very important that everything is done online and from the comfort of their home. Furthermore, they often praise the fact that P2P brings them the possibility of stable passive income that many of them are planning to use to improve their retirement. Many investors also say investing is fun. They enjoy checking their investment account almost every day to find out how much they have made by keeping the money they have earned reinvested on the platform.
