Since when do you invest in P2P? How about iuvo?
I began investing in P2P around March / April 2019 and IUVO was the company I started with.

Can you share with us your most favorite “hack” to earn a better return rate with iuvo?
Not really a hack but I took advice from iuvo on how best to set up my investment plan. Can you give me any hacks? 😉

Do you diversify your portfolio by investing in other kind of investments? If “yes”, share with us.
Currently I have a mix of cash / P2P and stocks as investments. I am moving away from cash as the interest rates are so low.

What do you prefer – manual or autoinvest? Why?
Autoinvest, I can relax knowing that my investments are being automatically invested without any manual actions

What is your personal investing strategy and what kind of return rate you manage to earn by using it?
According to the dashboard, I am currently earning around 14% per year. 

How do you decide how much money to invest – do you dedicate a part of your monthly income for investing or do you have another strategy?
I have been adding lump sum amounts to date but may soon month to regular but smaller monthly amounts

What is the best advice you can give to our P2P newbie investors?
Understand what the definitions / wording used is as this will ensure you make the best decisions, and if in doubt – ask someone

What functionality in iuvo’s platform do you use most often?
The dashboard for sure, it gives all of the information that I need in one place

What would you improve оn iuvo’s platorm?
I honestly think it is great as it is. I also invest smaller amounts in other P2P companies but your platform is by far the best I use.
