7.Choosing a peer to peer lending

The research link below from seedly is a very good comparison on the peer to peer platform in Singapore

Link:https://blog.seedly.sg/p2p-comparison/

Summary
  1. Require only minimally $100 for investing
  2. High-interest rates (this mean that it comes with higher risk as...
  3. The loans are for SME companies in Singapore which may default on payment(this is true as I already have one of my SME loan in the delinquent status)
  4. The platform all charge an investor service fee
  5. Always invest in the minimal amount(money that you can lose)
  6. Funding societies have a default rate of 1.48% and moolahsense has a default rate of 3.48%
However, The #1 Reason on why I used moolahsense more frequently than funding societies...

Because funding societies do not reveal the name of the companies that you can invest in compare to moolahsense(I am unable to provide a picture for proof due to confidentiality of the companies but you can see the review below)

But!funding societies loan campaign is definitely filling up faster than moolahsense and it's often hard to invest in a funding societies campaign as they are often fill up quickly and because its default rate is lower compared to moolahsense, so I would say both platforms are good to try out

Anyway, if you would like to know more about my moolahsense and funding societies journey do stay tuned for part 3(I don't really like writing a long post)on learning how to read financial statements and a summary of my moolahsense loan!
