Alexcredit on Mintos
Ukraine-issued short-term loans from Alexcredit are listed in EUR on Mintos and range from EUR 50 to EUR 325 with a maturity of 25 days. You can expect an average net annual return of up to 13%.
All Alexcredit loans are secured with a buyback guarantee. This means, should a loan be delinquent for 60 days or more, it will be repurchased by the loan originator. Furthermore, in order to keep its skin in the game, the company will keep 10% of all loans placed on the marketplace on its balance sheet.
To obtain exposure to Alexcredit loans, investors will be able to invest in loans issued by Mintos Finance to Alexcredit, where repayments depend on the borrower’s payments. Each loan issued by Mintos Finance to Alexcredit will be pegged to a respective loan issued by Alexcredit to the final borrower. Mintos Finance is a Mintos group company. A detailed description of the new structure is available in the Mintos Finance loan agreement and assignment agreement.
