Since the launch of the new strategies on 13 August, we’ve received and taken into account the feedback from many investors, and we’re introducing 2 updates:
13 August 2020
About a year ago, we introduced Mintos Invest & Access, a new way of investing that combined attractive returns with increased liquidity. And the last months showed it can provide additional liquidity even in difficult market conditions: on average, cashouts for current payments are being complete in 5:44 hours.
While 50% of our active investors created an Invest & Access portfolio since launch, they also gave us a lot of feedback. To further improve our product offering, we listened and analyzed investor behavior, and one common theme emerged: Investors wanted more choice when it came to investing preferences. We identified the most popular preferences and distilled them into 3 new Mintos strategies that replace Invest & Access: Diversified, Conservative, and High-yield.
With this change, creating a strategy that matches your preferences is easier than ever before. New investors will be able to get started quickly with a diversified portfolio according to their chosen profile. And experienced investors can use this opportunity to reduce the complexity of running multiple custom strategies.
The Diversified strategy will give you the highest diversification and is the most similar of the new strategies to Invest & Access.
The Conservative strategy invests in loans from lending companies with the best portfolio quality.
The High-yield strategy invests in loans with the highest interest rates.
Introducing investment limits
To further improve diversification and limit investors’ exposure, the amount the 3 new strategies invest in a single loan is capped:
|Strategy target or sum of invested amount and available balance (whichever is smaller)||Investment per loan|
|< € 5 000||€ 10 – 10|
|€ 5 000.01 – 10 000||€ 10 – 25|
|€ 10 000.01 – 15 000||€ 10 – 50|
|€ 15 000.01 – 20 000||€ 10 – 75|
|> € 20 000.01||€ 10 – 100|
Getting started with Mintos strategies
Mintos strategies are a fully automated way of investing. To get started, you just select the amount you want to invest. You’ll get a portfolio of loans that is diversified according to each strategy’s priorities. Your exact portfolio mix automatically adjusts to the market.
Mintos strategies also offer additional liquidity: If you want to access your money sooner, they come with a cashout option that lets you access your money faster (subject to market demand).
Please note that Mintos strategies are only available for investments in EUR.
Auto Invest and manual investing become Custom strategies
We will continue to support both Auto Invest and manual investing on the Primary and Secondary Market. Investors will be able to find both options under Custom investing when creating a new strategy, or under Custom automated strategies and Custom manual investments respectively on the Invest page.
