These are the crowd investing platforms I like the most.
I’ve studied how they work and invested in them. Until now, the results didn’t disappoint me.
When I’m investing in a new platform, I look at the following:
- is the platform regulated in any way
- where are my funds kept and what happens if the platform goes bankrupt
- does it have any fees? if yes, are they low enough to justify an investment there
- what securities they offer for my investments: mortgage, buyback or payment guarantee, provision fund
- can I diversify enough my investments on the platform in order to reduce risk
- does it have an auto invest tool so I don’t need to log in every day
- what types of investment they offer and where do they come from
- how are they handling borrower bankruptcy and late payments
I don’t send too many updates, but from time to time I find interesting things investment related that might interest you.
