Our investors at iuvo purchase parts of loans, issued by registered non-banking financial institutions. In return, they get up to 15% annual return – much higher than interest levels on bank deposits.
All funds invested through iuvo are secured with buy-back guarantee by the originator.* It means that the investments in each loan that is more than 60 days delinquent will be repaid 100% to the investor.
When you look at it this way, the investment in iuvo sounds like the perfect deal. Each investor must be asking himself: am I missing something? Why a financial institution would share its return with me and would cover the losses from my bad investments?
Where’s the catch?
There’s no catch, only pure math.
Imagine that you run a non-banking financial institution – you’ve covered all criteria of your national bank, you have the required capital, the necessary processes, and expert personnel and you are registered as a non-banking financial institution. Now you’re in the lending market, and you’ve gained the trust of clients that were deemed too risky for the banks. Your risk assessment is right; people are happy with your service – they take loans and pay on time – your business is growing.
At one point the demand for your loans is higher than the money you have at hand. Unlike banks, who can always attract more deposits to fund their lending, non-banking financial institutions can only use their funds. It means that to finance their business, they have to count on the money of their owners (equity) or debt funding (through banks, institutional investors or physical persons).
It is where iuvo comes into the equation. By investing through the platform, our investors inject “fresh money” into the lending business of the originators. In return, they get part of the return from this loan.
The interest that the originator is ready to pay for this financing is higher than returns from bank deposits. And still, it is more attractive than the interest (and all other fees, collaterals, covenants, etc.) that they would have to pay if they finance themselves through a bank loan or issuing of bonds to the public.
It is why the loan originators have the incentive to keep clear and positive relations with the investors on the platform, including covering the risks of bad loans because in this way they maintain their source of funding which helps them to develop their business further.
It’s a win/win situation for both sides that iuvo connects. This the reason why the peer-to-peer model of financing is so successful throughout Central and Western Europe and is gaining momentum in the Eastern part of the continent as well.
