The growth scopes
Since its launch in 2016 the company has shown sustainable growth, aiming to ensure the comfort of both loan originators and investors. In 2018 iuvo listed two new lending companies on its market (bringing the count to five) and expanded the list of types of offerings with personal, business, car and mortgage loans. Most popular among the investors are the mortgage loans that are secured with property of the borrower.
An important note is that all the listed credits in iuvo have Buy-back guarantee, meaning that in case of default the loan originator pays back the invested amount to the investors. This significantly reduces the risk for the users. Another of the marketplace’s benefits is that 95% of the listed credits come from EU regulated companies.
