Investments in loans issued by Ukrpozyka and Dinero – listed as Finko Ukraine on Mintos – has a parent company guarantee

Updated 30.12.2019

Investments in loans on Mintos marketplace may come with a number of risk mitigation factors. One of them is a corporate guarantee where a third party, typically the loan originator’s parent company guarantees the fulfilment of the loan originator’s obligations, including buyback obligation. It means if a loan originating company cannot fulfil its contractual agreements towards an investor on Mintos, the parent company of that loan originator has to step in and meet the loan originating company’s obligations towards the investors.
EAG Finance A.S., the parent company of two loan originators – Ukrpozyka and Dinero, also a member of the Finko group, covers parent company guarantee to loans issued by both loan originators. Both are listed under the name of Finko Ukraine on the Mintos marketplace. Some of the equity investors of EAG Finance and Mintos overlap.

This means, that in case Ukrpozyka or Dinero fails to fulfil any monetary claims arising from loan agreements, EAG Finance A.S. is obliged to fulfil these obligations on behalf of the loan originators.

For example, if a loan with a buyback guarantee is late for more than 60 days and the loan originator is not able to buy back the loan, EAG Finance A.S. will have to buy it back.

Also, to answer a question some of the investors shared with our Investor Service team, both loan originators are different legal entities, yet both belong to the same parent company, making the parent company guarantee of both loan originators equally effective. If you are an Auto Invest user, this is also the reason why, when selecting Finko Ukraine loans in Auto Invest, you would invest in both of these entities.
