Statement from Grupeer

My personal Grupeer review 2020

Personally, I have invested 4 times now. I really like the Grupeer platform and the company behind it. 

I use an auto-investment setup with a 100% buyback guarantee.

Frequently I update my Grupeer review to make sure the content is up to date.

Let’s look into it ūüôā

What is Grupeer?


Grupeer platform

Grupeer is a fastgrowing European P2P lending platform where you can invest money into loans and earn interest every month. 

They connect investors with more than 41 loan originators from countries like Norway, Sweden, Latvia, Estonia, etc. 

Basically, you invest in loans and receive ongoing interest every month. Just like passive income!

My personal Grupeer investment strategy and the platform itself…

How to get started?


The signup process


When you sign up you just need to provide basic information about yourself.

They also need a picture of your¬†personal identification document¬†such as your passport.¬†They don’t approve driving licenses as ID.


To use the platform you must be 18 years old and they only accept money transfers from bank accounts from Europe (also Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland).

Transfer money to Grupeer

Transferwise

Before I transferred money to my Grupeer account through Transferwise. They give you the best exchange rate (no markup or hidden fees).  The transfer was completed on the same day!


Unfortunately, Grupeer has chosen to stop this option and therefore you can only make regular bank transfers
(SEPA transfer).

My auto-invest setup


Inside the Grupeer platform, I have one auto-invest strategy (They only offer one setup).

In general, I always use an auto-invest setup with a buyback guarantee. 
The entire platform has a buy-back guarantee which is very good.

The opportunities in their auto-invest are limited but sufficient enough.

 

This is my settings:

 

  • Loan Type: All
  • The maximum investment in one loan: ‚ā¨ 50.00
  • Currency: ‚ā¨ (EUR)
  • From 13%¬†annually
  • Remaining loan term (months): 1 – 36
  • Reinvest: Yes
  • Strategy Auto-invest unlimited: Yes
  • Buyback Guarantee: Yes
  • Remaining principal amount: All (Not possible to change)
  • Loan status: Current (Not possible to change)
  • Repayment type: Non-amortized and amortized
  • Country: 49 (Albania, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta,¬† Netherlands,¬† ¬†New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom)

Alla Kisika Grupeer CEOThe platform is 100% owned by the founder Alla Kisika
. She started together with Viktor Kirchgaessner but bought all his shares in the company.

They started in October 2016 and the company has +13 employees already. 

 

The platform has a very minimalist design and easy to understand interface.

Overview of the platform:

The P2P lending investment


The interest rate offered is up to +14-15%.

The platform has mostly development and business loans (usually between 6-12 months).

You must invest a minimum of EUR 10 in one loan. When the money is in the account you can start invest immediately.  


All loans have a buyback guarantee¬†in case of borrower’s payments is delayed for more than 60 days.
(If the lender can’t pay, the loan company repurchases the debt).

No risk rating is available, but they provide great information and pictures about the borrower or the investment project. 


The availability of loans is fine but with rising investors, they should have more available loans
.¬†That’s also why I invest EUR 50 in each loan instead of for example 10-20 EUR.¬†About 40 loans were available when I looked around last time.¬†My investment is reinvested immediately the same day.¬†

There is no secondary market yet but they started to develop this feature.

Grupeer sends no information to any Tax Agency or deducts taxes. You must do it yourself in your country. Remember that.
