Mintos Risk ScoreTo help you make informed decisions about investing in Notes, we evaluate investment risk with the Mintos Risk Score. The Mintos Risk Score for Notes is calculated from 4 subscores assigned to the underlying loans, based on the lending company’s loan portfolio performance, the efficiency of loan servicing, buyback strength, and legal setup between the lending company and us.
How the Mintos Risk Score works
Subscores grade four aspects of loans available for investment as Notes. The Mintos Risk Score is calculated by weighting points from the subscores: 40% loan portfolio performance, 25% loan servicer efficiency, 25% buyback strength, and 10% cooperation structure.Learn more
Mintos Risk Score
The Mintos Risk Score rates the risk level of a particular Note on a scale from 10.0 (low risk) to 1.0 (high risk). The calculated score is rounded to 1 decimal place.
The Mintos Risk Score can be withdrawn if one or more of the subscores is not available, and this is expressed with the value “Score Withdrawn” or (SW).
When the Mintos Risk Score is shown for a particular Set of Notes, the lending company providing the underlying loans is "Active".
Status Suspended (S) means that all activities on the Primary and Secondary Markets for Notes backed by loans from a specific lending company are stopped on the platform, until further notice.
The lending company can become Defaulted (D) based on predefined criteria. This means that no new Notes backed by loans issued by this lending company will be available for investment, and existing Notes will be removed from the Primary and Secondary Markets.
