Why you should consider investing in Bondora Go and Grow

Bondora Go&Grow

Bondora Go And Grow

Bondora was founded in 2008 and is one of the oldest and most trusted peer-to-peer platforms on the market. Until a couple of months ago, the only way to invest your money with Bondora was by investing in consumer loans directly through Portfolio Pro or their Portfolio Manager.

In May 2018, Bondora released Go & Grow. The big advantage of Go & Grow compared to other crowdlending offers is that you can access your money at any time, which is not possible if you’re lending your money out on other platforms (although you might be able to sell loans on the secondary market). Bondora automatically invests your money into a well-diversified bucket of tens of thousands of different loans across all credit ratings (AA-HR).

If you invest for the first time at Bondora don’t forget that you can get € 5  signup bonus for your first investment, more details HERE.

What is Go & Grow?

Go & Grow works as easily as (if not easier than) traditional investment methods whilst giving you an impressive return of 6.75% p. a. You simply add money to the account, then you can view and track your return on a daily basis. What’s more, there is no minimum term to hold your investment— meaning you can liquidate your account with ease.

A fundamental difference between Go & Grow and the products of other peer-to-peer lending platforms is the liquidity. If you’re looking for a short-term product in which you can liquidate your investment quickly, this is difficult to do with other existing platforms.

Reasons to use Go & Grow

The P2P industry has gained enormous popularity over the past few years. However, some investors have felt excluded from the incredible opportunity due to thinking they lack enough experience. No matter your experience level, Go & Grow offers market-leading benefits for all:

  • 6.75% p.a. return
  • Faster liquidity, meaning you can cash out your investment with minimal effort
  • Lower risk than other existing products, achieved via a diversified portfolio of investments backed by advanced and reliable technology
  • You only pay taxes when you make a withdrawal over your initial capital investment
  • There is a flat withdrawal fee of €1, regardless of the size of the account
  • No annual management fees
  • Share your account access and invest with people you trust to achieve a common goal
  • Ideal for beginners, as no previous investment experience is necessary
  • Automated features

A very important aspect for Bondora Go & Grow and which is not explained very clearly is that INTEREST is added DAILY to your account, so you do not have to wait a certain amount of time to benefit from the growth. This way, within a short period of time, you can clearly see the progress you are making towards your goal and how much Bondora has contributed to your total progress.

Other features of Bondora’s Go&Grow

  • Invite the people you trust: you can invest in cooperation with your friends and family members. To add authorized users to your Go & Grow account, click on the blue arrow in the upper right-hand corner of your account next to the settings wheel. You will then see the option “Invite to Go & Grow” appear. Once you click on this, enter the name and e-mail address of the person with whom you want to start investing. You can also select whether you want to grant this person the authority to withdraw from the account. You should only enable this feature for the people you trust.
  • Sub-accounts: you can create multiple accounts within Go & Grow (or “sub-accounts”) which will be independent of one another.
  • Setting goals: you can set goals for each sub-account within Go & Grow. You enter your starting capital amount, the amount you plan to invest monthly, and the duration of time for which you plan to invest. Bondora then combine this with the offered return rate to give you the “potential gain” figure.

They can see all relevant information on the borrowers: occupation, income, amount being borrowed, preferred interest rate, etc., and, therefore, make an informed decision of where to invest.

Unlimited e-money institution licence and Supervised by the Lithuanian FRA, the Bank of Lithuania

NEO Finance is the first and, so far, the only Lithuanian P2P platform operator to hold the unlimited e-money institution licence which allows operations in entire European Union. This ensures constant company’s supervision by the Bank of Lithuania. The supervision obliges NEO Finance to present the Bank of Lithuania with audited financial and statistical reports on a yearly and quarterly basis, respectively. NEO finance is also mandatorily audited by an external auditor at least two times per year.

New high-yield Envestio project – Production of Sawn Timber – part 2

Envestio logo

Envestio informed today that a new investment opportunity is available at the portal to all registered participants.

The project is presented by the Investment Project Owner that is already familiar to Envestio participants – Latvian company NDINAMIKA SIA. By investing in the project “Production of Sawn Timber – part 2” it is possible to participate in the financing round for the production cycle of sawn timber products by a representative of European woodworking industry.

The loan is fully secured by commercial pledge and personal guarantee of the main beneficiary of NDINAMIKA SIA.

You can invest any amount starting from 1 EUR. Minimum deposit to the investment account is EUR 100.

If you invest for the first time at Envestio don’t forget that you can get € 5 and a 0.5% cashback bonus for the investments made in the first nine months (270 days), more details HERE.

Investment opportunity

  • High-yielding investment in woodworking sector, factoring-type financing for a sawn timber production/wood pellets trading company.
  • Secured debt, 20,5% planned annual return.
  • Investment principal buyback is available at 5% penalty rate.

Project description

The company NDINAMIKA SIA is a Latvian company that is successfully acting on the market of production and sale of sawn timber to local and international customers. Established in the year 2013, NDINAMIKA SIA is a well-known and experienced player on the Latvian woodworking market. Besides production of sawn timber, the company is also engaged into sale and delivery of wood pellets/biomass fuel to Latvian households, small agricultural complexes, and other consumers.

Sawn timber is being produced from the raw round timber, purchased directly from the owner of the forest sites. NDINAMIKA SIA has concluded long-term agreements with a number of companies and private individuals that ensures operational flexibility.

A standard production cycle includes:

  • Inspection of the site, marking the trees
  • Cutting down the trees in agreed volume using company’s equipment and vehicles
  • Transportation of the raw round wood to the company’s warehouse, preparation for further processing
  • Production of sawn wood using specialized tools and equipment
  • Post-production treatment, packing, sale

The funds, attracted with the help of Envestio will be used for the purchase of raw round timber, financing the production process, and covering the time gap before the final payment is received from the customers.

Market

In the first half of 2018 the overall situation in the sphere of supply of round timber has continued to improve. At the same time, assortment prices remain high, thus indicating insufficient supply of wood for further processing. As the “Forest and Wood Products Research and Development Institute” notes, the rapid increase in the prices of round wood in ports has reduced the availability of technological wood in the regions of Latvia.

Roundwood prices have risen noticeably not only in Latvia, but also in the Baltic neighbour states and Sweden. It should be noted that the increase in prices for pulpwood and saw logs in Sweden has not been as rapid as, for example, in Latvia.

The limiting supply of round timber and the high demand for wood due to climatic conditions, as a result of the increase in the prices of round timber, has affected the export performance of the industry.

In the 5 months of 2018 the amount of wood products exported from Latvia exceeded the indicator of the previous year by 21%. The value of exports of slab and plywood exceeded last year volumes by 4%, the export sales of sawn timber products remained at the same level, the volume of exported granules decreased by 14%. The export value of round timber climbed by 90%, firewood and chips – increased by 12%.

The loan is fully secured by mixed commercial pledge and personal guarantee of the main beneficiaries of “SRR” JSC.

If you invest for the first time at Envestio don’t forget that you can get € 5 and a 0.5% cashback bonus for the investments made in the first nine months (270 days), more details HERE.

Investment opportunity

  • High-yielding investment in logistics industry, financing of technical inspection and repair/renewal works for freight containers.
  • Secured debt, 21% planned annual return.
  • Investment principal buyback is available at 5% penalty rate.

Project description

The JSC SRR was established in Riga, Latvia in the year 2007. JSC SRR is a member of FIATA, LAFF, LTBA, CCTP, holds ISO 9001:2008 certificate, and employs 64 people.

Company’s key assets include 950 x 20’ and 450 х 40’ containers as well as 825 railroad platforms.

The main fields of company’s activity are:

  • Multimodal transportation and integrated railway solutions for metallurgical companies and industrial manufacturers
  • Handling of container trains
  • Optimizing use of rolling stock and providing own containers
  • Warehousing of various types of cargo
  • Regular feeder container line Rotterdam-Riga-Ust-Luga-St. Petersburg-Rotterdam

The company is looking to conduct a round of technical inspection and repair/renewal works for all its containers, used for freight operations. The total cost of the project is estimated to be EUR 650,000. Envestio participants will have a chance to finance this project in several tranches of moderate size, according to the number of containers submitted for inspection and further proceedings in a single batch.

Market

Consolidated figures show that during the year 2017 the global market for transportation of goods using freight containers increased by more than 6% in relation to 2016. Last time so high market growth rates were observed more than 6 years ago – in the year 2011. Overall demand for China-Europe-America freight routes in 2017 increased rapidly due to China’s GDP 6,9% growth that was almost 0,5% higher than anticipated growth of 6,5%. At the same time, also the freight rates in 2017 swiftly recovered from downfall, experienced in 2016.

Further development of the global market is largely dependent on the extent at which current expansion plans of the biggest container lines are realized as well as on the development dynamics of the international trade. Bearing in mind increasing ambiguity on the global markets, caused by geopolitical shifts combined with high growth rates the key factor for success is the ability to manage both own and freighted assets in the most efficient and flexible way.

From the regional perspective the biggest increase in volumes was achieved in the North America (+12,6%), followed by Latin America (+11,1%), China (+10,3%), and Europe (+4,4%).

If you invest for the first time at Envestio don’t forget that you can get € 5 and a 0.5% cashback bonus for the investments made in the first nine months (270 days), more details HERE.

Investment opportunity

  • High-yielding investment in timber processing sector, factoring-type financing for a sawn timber and wooden pallets manufacturing company.
  • Secured debt, 20,67% planned annual return.
  • Investment principal buyback is available at 5% penalty rate.

Project description

The company PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA is a Latvian venture that is successfully working on the market of producing sawn dimensional timber products and different types of wooden pallets since 2012. The company operates modern production facilities in Riga, Latvia, which allows it to optimize raw products purchasing and logistics costs. Latvia is one of the richest countries in Europe in terms of forest – approximately one half of its territory is covered with woods. A vast variety and wide availability of different types of local raw timber makes woodworking industry one of the country’s most advanced and well-known at different export markets. PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA uses trademark “Made in Latvia” as an additional competitive advantage for its produce.

Flexibility is another key asset of PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA. Dimensional timber it produces has vast amount of different sizes, making it suitable for a wide variety of purposes of use in different markets with diverse standards.

The same refers to the wooden pallets, produced by PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA. Depending on specification of cargos and type of transportation and storage, the company offers pallets of different construction, durability, and area. For the production of separate order of pallets, it is also possible to use clients’ drawings and other requirements. The range of materials, which are used in the production process of the pallets include planks, beams, plywood, OSB, pressed cubes, as well as other materials. Examples of company’s produce can be seen in the pictures below.

PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA is looking to attract factoring-type financing enabling it to accomplish additional purchases of raw timber and increase sales, mainly to the export markets. The PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA currently is actively expanding to new markets (such as Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Scandinavian countries) but additional funds will also be used in order to increase exports to current clients. The main export markets for the company’s produce include Germany (up to 48% of the company’s produce), Poland (16%) Belgium (8%), the Netherlands (7%), and other countries (21%). Advantageous geographical location allows fast delivery of company’s produces both across the Europe and also to the Eastern direction by land or sea.

Market

Wood is the most preferred material for pallets across the globe, as it offers huge advantages in terms of response time and low startup cost for customized designs. Wooden pallets sometimes end up with sharp splinters causing injuries or protruding nails that damage food packaging. But due to the low costs, wood pallets will continue to dominate product sales in most areas across the globe. However, wood pallets these days are largely being replaced with plastic pallets. As food safety compliance and reusability is a growing attraction among manufacturers, they are looking for sustainable material handling options and thus, plastic pallets will continue to gain acceptance in a range of industries including foods & beverage, pharmaceuticals, groceries and automotive.

With a huge incremental opportunity, the global pallets market is projected to grow at more than 5% CAGR during the period of assessment.

During the period 2012 – 2016, the global pallets market expanded at a CAGR of 4.7%. However, during the forecast period – that is between 2017 and 2025 – the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% owing to increasing demand for better and safe transportation coupled with the rise in demand for pallets from various industries like food, agriculture, chemicals etc. The global pallets market is projected to represent incremental opportunity of more than US$ 25 Bn between 2017 and 2025.

Sample repayment schedule

Envestio participant’s investment – EUR 1 000.00
Payments:

  • 29.11.2018 – EUR 17.56
  • 29.12.2018 – EUR 16.99
