What is the mission of BeeLend?
BeeLend is a digital platform to facilitate direct lending between individuals. It connects investors, creditworthy borrowers and – optionally – guarantors to strike the best available loan deals amongst themselves.
Can you describe BeeLend in numbers?
Currently, the platform has more than 16 000 active users. The number of borrowers is close to 14 000, whereas there are close to 2 000 investors (lenders) and close to 1 000 guarantors.
Can you give us the history of BeeLend?
After 2 years of development, the system went live in the first half of 2018.
How does BeeLend generate passive income to investors and guarantors?
Investors lend money to borrowers and earn interest on these loans. Guarantors are paid the fee of the guaranty.
What are the risks for investors and guarantors on Beelend, how can they protect themselves from these risks?
The main risk is the late payment or the default (bankruptcy) of the borrower. If the loan was guaranteed the investor can also turn to the guarantor for immediate recovery. The guaranty is limited to the amount set by the guarantor and only covers the principle that comes due under the loan agreement. If in the event of the borrower’s default the guarantor has made a payment to the investor then the borrower is required to reimburse the guarantor.
Investors are encouraged to engage in multiple loans at a time because diversifying their investments help them minimize losses on individual loans.
What kind of credit checks does BeeLend do on borrowers and guarantors?
BeeLend assigns a Risk Rating to each of the borrowers (guarantors) based on their personal, professional and financial details published on their BeeLend profile. A credit check is only a preliminary assessment of a borrower’s solvency and is based on data that is provided by the borrower. If the investors find fake data on a borrower profile in the verification process then they should also question the borrower rating. The same applies to guarantor ratings.
How do the statistics of repayments from borrowers and guarantors reflect these risks?
What is the success rate of returns from default?
