The smalest investment in any single loan is 5 Eur. We recommend investing each loan in small portions. This means that you do not have to finance whole sum of a loan that borrowers apply for. We advise investing each loan in small amount of money. Thus, if borrower defaults a lender will experience less damage to his loan portfolio. We advise to start lending small amounts of money, evaluating and understanding the principles of FinBee operation as well as investment risk and only then start lending significantly larger amounts.

All investors’ funds are held in Clients’ Money Account (CMA) in Citadele bank.

Borrowers also pay their monthly installments to this CMA account, so all monthly installments will be transferred to investors according to payment schedule in case FinBee goes bankrupt.

The AutoLend facility is designed to enable lending on a larger scale and with more sophistication than is feasible by manually searching and selecting loan requests, and borrowers, and then manually placing bids on those loan requests. Via a lending portfolio, AutoLend enables automatic bidding. AutoLend will automatically place lending bids on loan requests selected according to the lending portfolio parameters. Up to five different lending portfolios may be created by the lender each configured by different available AutoLend parameters. This enables lenders to lend on a portfolio basis setting borrower credit ratings, borrower ages, interest rates and lending amounts. This enables lending in larger volume and in a more structured manner than is feasible making manual lending bids on specific loan requests.

Each portfolio is designed to provide proposals  into one loan only once, but if the loan request is in the line with several portfolios created settings, all portfolios will start to lend to the same loan.

You can choose from two different types of AutoLend:

  1. Bids with target interest rate
  2. Bids with your present interest rate

More about AutoLend settings here.

This is a facility which is designed to automatically replace a bid that has been bumped-off via another lender’s underbid. The lender has the facility to specify a number of parameters controlling how the replacement bid/s will be placed.

In the secondary market you can buy existing loan parts from other lenders. This way you can start earning interest right away and spread the risk in your loan portfolio across more borrowers. As a buyer you are paying for the right to take the repayments due to the seller at the same nominal rate originally agreed with the borrower. You can also sell your loan parts in the secondary market.

No. Once you have confirmed your investment, you cannot cancel it. But you can always use the secondary market to sell your loan parts.
