The InvestUP Crowdfunding brokerage has been established to alleviate this problem by enabling investors to distribute their capital across many P2P hosts using just one account.

Last post: Dec 6, 2019

  • Profit-Loss-Risk

  • Choice-Loans-P2P-Lending

    Peer-to-Peer lending means that instead of borrowing from one lender/institution, you borrow from many smaller ones who have clubbed together to raise your money. It differs from Crowdfunding as you are not giving away any equity. The process is arranged by a central agency (the crowdfunding platform) and you deal with just them and they in turn manage all your individual lenders. To qualify you must be trading at least 2 years, be profitable and have a good credit record.
