New To P2P Investing? Start Here.

You’ve probably heard about Peer-to-Peer (P2P) lending  as an alternative investment.

What Is P2P Lending?

P2P lending allows investors to earn attractive interest on their money by lending it to businesses with growth potential and plans.  Returns come in the form of regular repayment of interest and principal. For any given loan, there could be hundreds of investors who put up the money and share the risks and returns of the investment.

Peer-to-Peer lending is enjoying increasing interest and participation in Singapore for a few reasons.

#1 Higher Returns Than Traditional Investment Instruments

P2P loans could yield returns in the region of 10 to 14% per annum, which is very attractive, given the low interest rate environment.

#2 Short Investment Time Horizon

Compared to other investments than require you to hold an investment for years before seeing a substantial return on investment, yield from P2P investments can start to stream in months after the initial investment.

#3 Huge Capital Not Necessary To Invest

For as little as $100, you can begin to invest in P2P loans. This makes it ideal for young people who do not have alot of cash to spare and beginner investors.

#4 Relatively Simple Investment Mechanics

Investing in P2P loans do not require knowledge of technical analysis, performing stock valuations, or an advanced knowledge of finance. For each P2P investment, investors can examine a comprehensive factsheet that spells out vital information about the company and the terms of the loan. You can then decide for yourself if the returns promised is worth the risk will be taking on.
