The investment opportunities on Mintos continue to multiply, as you can now invest in car loans issued in Spain for the first time! This is because we have a new member of the Mintos family – Lendrock, a car loan provider based in Spain.
Established in 2015, Lendrock provides fast and flexible funding for borrowers who are purchasing low-cost cars, that is, cars under EUR 10,000. Lendrock is the only end-to-end financing platform which specialises in financing low-cost cars in the country.
This means, Lendrock not only helps out the borrowers of the car but also the car dealership. Because of this, the company has created partnerships with more than 500 car dealers in Spain. Lendrock covers all aspects from origination through to servicing, including registration of the vehicle. Since its inception, the company has received more than 13,000 loan requests and financed more than 1,000 borrowers.
Quick, fast and accurate – Lendrock’s promise
Lendrock provides its loans through a mobile phone app. It uses alternative data to determine customers’ creditworthiness in regards to not only their ability to pay the loan but also in terms of income and expense stability. This process allows the company to make decisions on loan applications in only 3 seconds for 80% of all potential customers.
“We are excited to join Mintos, which is in our view the leading marketplace for alternative consumer finance, to further diversify our funding sources and support our growth as we help more car dealers sell more cars and get consumers into the car they need,” says Ventura Pobre, the Co-founder and CEO of Lendrock.
Lendrock is backed by three years of operating experience. During this time, more than 1,000 cars have been financed. More than that, the company offers a unique proposition to all stakeholders: car dealers, consumers and investors. Lendrock is backed by leading private and institutional investors.
