Mintos marketplace for loans now has more than 35 000 registered investors from 64 countries. Mintos states that approximately 2,000 new investors join Mintos each month. The growing pool of investors has allowed Mintos to help fund loans worth more than € 325 million through Mintos in two years since its establishment.
Mintos provides retail investors with an easy way to invest in loans originated by a variety of alternative lending companies around the world. Investors can earn returns on a diverse pool of assets within a single marketplace, while loan originators gain access to a flexible funding model.
“All of these numbers mean a lot to us. Creating a global marketplace where retail investors gain access to a new class of assets is our main goal,” said Martins Sulte, CEO and Co-founder of Mintos. “We believe investing should have no borders, and are excited for each step that takes us closer to this vision.”
According to Mintos, over € 200 million has been funded in 2017 alone, approximately € 1 million in invested each day on the platform. Mintos says it is the market leader in continental Europe with a 40% market share.
On the supply side of the marketplace, there are currently 27 loan originators from 13 countries. The first loan originator from Africa just joined the marketplace, making it the third continent from which Mintos offers loans.
