Fellow Finance combines the demand and supply of money without traditional intermediaries digitally and safely. Both lenders and borrowers decide on which loan terms and conditions they are willing to lend and borrow money. We are a part of the fast growing sharing economy industry.
Investor sees always the up-to-date situation of his portfolio and cash flows. We are also offering investing tools for a comprehensive portfolio analysis including an unique access to real-time data of the marketplace's profits, interest rates and credit losses.
The return on consumer and business loans does not correlate significantly with the stock or other interest rate markets. This means that loan investments are a good addition to your overall investment portfolio. The historical average annual return has been around 10% after credit losses.
Credit risk of loans are limited in agreements with collection agencies where Fellow Finance sells loans after 90 days of delinquency to a collection agency. Business loans include at least an entrepreneur's own personal guarantee and often a collateral such as real estate or enterprise mortgage.
The most advanced secondary marketplace offers investors an opportunity to sell and buy loans easily. The secondary marketplace enables to withdraw investments from the service quickly by selling loans to other investors if the invested capital is needed somewhere else.

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.
For years, large companies have had the opportunity to apply for funding by emitting bonds. 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 much with the stock or bond market performance, investing through Fellow Finance serves as an excellent option for diversification of assets. The investing is free-of-charge and the credit loss risk is capped. Fellow Finance team has a long and proven track-record in successful credit risk analysis.
