Our crowdfunding service operates on the market-based auction principle. The interest rate of a loan is based on the offers from investors to a borrower. The investor decides the rate he is willing to lend and the borrower the rate he is willing to accept the loan offer. Thus, the loan terms are decided between the investors and the borrower. The market-based auction principle ensures that the borrower will be presented always the lowest offers. The lowest offers will then be consolidated as a single loan offer and even though the loan is funded by several investors, the borrower will have only one loan to repay. Fellow Finance manages all administration between the parties and takes care that interests and capital repayments are distributed to the investors.
Large companies have had the opportunity to apply for funding by emitting bonds for years. Now, Fellow Finance enables this option for smaller companies as well by maintaining a marketplace where companies can apply for loan-based crowfunding directly from investors. In other words, a creditworthy company, regardless of its size, can access a market-based funding channel nowadays. This gives to companies one more alternative when applying for funding.
At our marketplace, any individual or company can start investing in consumer and business loans and by doing so, access an investment option that has previously been only available for banks and insitutional investors. Fellow Finance idenifies and evaluates loan applicants. As an investor, you can choose whom you are willing to lend and at which terms. Monthly interests and capital repayments can be easily re-invested to new loans, which allows investors to benefit from compound interest. As returns from investing in consumer and business loans does not correlate significantly with the stock or bond market performance, investing through Fellow Finance serves as an excellent option for diversification of assets.
