LendSecured real estate crowdlending platform overview

LendSecured is a real estate crowdlending platform, based in Riga, providing only real estate backed business investment opportunities.

LendSecured was founded by two entrepreneurs, who have built a successful secured lending business in Latvia, specializing in real estate backed lending to businesses. The return they have brought to stakeholders of their business was on average 10% annually. The emergence of technological solutions has inspired the founders to build an investment platform and offer the same lucrative investment opportunities for a wider public.

LendSecured platform was created in 2017, as a private tool for investors, enabling them to monitor their loan portfolios. During these years, the platform has been developing its core business (mortgage lending), gathering experience and building loan portfolios.

Since 2017 the platform was accessible exclusively for high net worth investors, but now they are opening it for the public.

The core pillar and philosophy for LendSecured is to minimize the risks. LendSecured feels responsible for their clients and believes that if investors have trusted them with their funds, then it is their duty to offer the safest possible investment opportunities. In order to minize the risks, LendSecured publish investment projects with low LTV (Loan to Value ratio). The lower the ratio, the lower the risk.

LendSecured benefits from debt collection license (Loan MGMT Ltd.). Besides that, LendSecured is the member of European Crowdfunding Network since 2020.

In order to ensure the security of the clients funds LendSecured has partnered with the prominent payment solution provider Lemonway, which is a Fintech founded in 2007 and regulated by Banque de France. Lemonway is obliged by the regulator to hold all money received on behalf of its clients on a separate account, which is held with BNP Paribas (the largest bank of France by value of assets), thus investors of LendSecured can have a peace of mind, as their funds are held safely on a segregated bank account monitored by French Central Bank. This fact totally excludes the chance of fraud, which recently has occured on other platforms in P2P sector.

Moreover, Lemonway is doing all compliance checks, KYC & AML procedures of all funds credited to LendSecured’s account. This helps LendSecured to speed up the investment process and be assured that they comply with all the latest regulations set up by the EU.

If you invest for the first time at LendSecured don’t forget that you can get  a 0.5% cashback bonus for the investment amount.

Who can invest at LendSecured?

Anyone who is above 18 years old can become a client. To register, you need to submit a copy of your passport or ID document and wait until our team completes your identification process. Once all KYC and AML procedures are done, you can invest!

Every investor must have an opened bank account in the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA).

Investment deals on LendSecured platform

Lendsecured accepts projects with Loan-to-Value (LTV) of 50% on average, maximum reaching 70%. The lower the LTV, the smaller the risk to an investor. The LTV of 50% means that the value of a real estate is as twice as high as the loan amount. This means that in a situation, where the loan ought to be recovered from the sale of the real estate, the value of the real estate will be more than enough to cover the amount lent.

All mortgages can be monitored online on the Land Register of Republic of Latvia: www.zemesgramata.lv.

There are three repayment types that are featured on LendSecured:

  • annuity– where interest is paid monthly together with the loan principal amount spread over the life of the loan.
  • bullet repayment type, the most common type, where borrower makes interest payments monthly, but principal repayment is made in one full payment before the end of the loan maturity.
  • full bullet where there is no interest, nor principal payments during the life of the loan. The sum consisted of entire interest and principal is repaid at the end of the maturity date.

The minimum investment amount on the LendSecured platform is 50 EUR and the average loan term is 12-18 months.

The “secret” to reaching the first 1000, 10000 and 100000 EUR / USD

Compound-interest

Most people get stuck until they reach the first 1, followed by a few zeros of  earned /saved/invested money, and they stay in the “start” area for the rest of their lives, taking it over and over again from the beginning.

This is why most people do not become financially independent and do not truly achieve financial prosperity.

The first 1000 EUR invoiced from the new business;
The first 10,000 EUR invested on the stock exchange;
The first EUR 100,000 in the personal portfolio;
The first studio for rent;
First salary / bonus etc. of EUR 3000 (the example is relevant, even if it does not start with 1)

The effort to reach the first 1, followed by a few zeros, is enormous and many give up along the way. What they don’t know is that after you hit a 1 followed by a few zeros (2,3,4 etc.), the rest of the zeros are much easier to reach.

After 10 years of struggling to reach a portfolio of 100,000 EUR, most likely up to 200,000 EUR could take you much less, up to 300,000 EUR less and so on.

The same applies to investments. You can constantly invest 200 EUR per month, without seeing a big difference in the portfolio, until, at a certain moment, the compound interest intervenes and your portfolio grows rapidly.

 

The graphic result is more than clear:

Calculator_initial

200 EUR invested monthly for 20 years at 10% interest

The result is:

Calculation result

Result after 20 years

The graph “speaks” for itself:

Balance after 20 years

Balance after 20 years

So don’t get lost on the road, but continue at maximum acceleration, until you reach that goal of 1 followed by a few zeros.

After that point, things will become easier, automated, routine.

So the “secret” is that there is no secret: all that is needed is discipline, patience and time.

What to do: pay off the credit or invest for passive income?

Pay off the credit or invest for passive income?

I saved a certain amount of money and I manage to keep saving month by month, what do I do? Do I pay off my credit or invest to generate higher income in the future?

Probably many of you have at least one mortgage loan and/or one or more consumer loans (if you read this article) and at the same time you have started to accumulate some financial reserves and may have thought or even started to put the money to work. In this context, you may also think about the fact that interest rates may rise, a crisis may occur at any time and at the same time you can see the good profits that have been made and are made from real estate investments, stock exchange, cryptocurrencies and business.

In all this context, it is normal for the answer to the question to pay the credit or invest the money to be complex, with many variables and uncertainties, but also so important. Basically the answer can guide your financial strategy for several years.

Let’s begin!

Before I should ask myself if I pay the credit or invest, there are some things we have to check:

  • If there are debts from credit cards and overdrafts with interest rates above 15% -20%, those should be paid before we think about investments;
  • Consumer debt, car etc. – we should focus on them and pay them in advance before investing;
  • We fail to save constantly – focus first on building this habit;
  • Reserve fund to cover living costs for a period of 6-12 months.

Before you have all the above checked, you should not even think about starting investing.

Any consumer credit used for the acquisition of liabilities should be paid as a priority. Real estate and investment loans (those used to purchase assets) are the ones we can doubt whether we will pay them in advance or not.

We will talk specifically about real estate loans, to simplify and make the analysis relevant, but we can have the same analysis process in the case of a non-real estate investment loan.Well, now the question that remains is: Do I pay the real estate loan or do I use my future reserves and savings for investments?

Economically speaking

From an economic point of view, we will compare the actual effective interest rate of the loan with the expected net return on investments.

For example, we have an interest of 5% on the mortgage loan and

a  return estimated by us of 10% of the investment in shares (historical average yield)

or

we find an apartment at a very good price and with a rent yield of 8%

or

bonds with 9% interest

and so on….

So we have on one hand a 5% safe interest vs. a yield estimate of 10% or 8% or 9%.The decision may seem obvious – at such a yield differential, in 20-25 years you pay the property 2 times.

But the decision is simple just at first sight and it becomes more complex when we go deep. Why? Because the interest rate on credit is safe (if it is 5%, it is 5% no matter what I do) while the return on investments is always an estimate.

Estimate because:

  • The stock market may no longer perform in the next 10 years as in the past or you catch a very weak interval;
  • The yield on the rental property may decrease, or it may not be at all, unless you have a tenant or you find a structural problem of the construction;
  • The issuer of the bond can go bankrupt and you lose all the money.

There are risks that you must take into account to adjust the returns on investments with the percentage of risk. Professionals always calculate their adjusted return on an investment. The calculation is very complex and has many variables. But for the sake of simplification we can estimate a differential for the degree of risk. For example: -1.5% for a very good real estate, -2.5% for small and medium-sized companies bonds and -3% for blue chips shares.Thus, we now have a comparison between + 5% credit payment and (10% – 3% = 7%) for shares; (8% -1.5% = 6.5%) for real estate and (9% -2.5% = 6.5%) for bonds.

Now it’s a little clearer. We know that up to a loan interest rate of 6.5% or 7% we can invest without problems, but if the interest exceeds these levels it becomes more profitable to pay the credit.

Of course, the calculation is relevant depending on how well we made our estimate of future profits.

Many investors and business owners maintain their long-term loans, knowing that they can generate higher long-term returns with the same amount of money. This is the case of many smaller or larger entrepreneurs, it is the case of those who invest professionally or even those who invest passively in the long term.

Obviously, a solution would be to make more risky and / or more active investments that can bring higher returns, but in this case you really should know what you are doing.

Important is to make your calculations as well as you can, because, after all, nobody knows the future.

Psychologically

The need for survival/safety is lower (and stronger) on Maslow’s pyramid than aspirational needs. From here comes a degree of stress that will make you quite conservative in investments when you have unpaid loans.

Emotions are not good in investments.

To make a decision:

  • Do your calculations – see economic analysis above;
  • Calculate your risk profile;
  • What decision would make you unable to sleep at night?;
  • How would you feel about paying off your debts? But what if you didn’t pay them?
  • How would you feel if you invested in passive income? But what if you didn’t invest?
  • How would you feel if you paid your credit with 5% interest and the stock would have a 50% yield that year, which you would not benefit from? But if you did not pay your credit and invest in the stock market, and the stock market would fall by 50% that year? Which of these 2 options would most disturb you?

When choosing whether to pay your credit or invest/accumulate reserves you must take into account both the economical and psychological aspects. Both are important, but more important are the psychological ones, because they have the power to sabotage you.

Finally, if you are still not cleared how to proceed, you can choose the middle way and use the amounts saved according to the formula: Invest = (10 – Credit interest rate) and with the rest pay the credit. That is, if the credit interest is 4% and you save 1000 EUR per month, you pay in advance (or you set aside to pay in advance) 400 EUR and you invest 600 EUR.

Simple, right?
