“The third year of PeerBerry operation was special for us. Despite all the challenges that a pandemic brought to the world, this is a year of great opportunities for us. First of all, the recent developments in the market have highlighted our strengths. The challenges of this year helped us to show and to prove who we are and how good our partners are. Today, our investors see us as one of the most reliable and transparent alternative investment platforms in Europe. For this, I am grateful to my team, business partners, and, of course, investors for their trust in us” – says Arūnas Lekavičius, CEO of PeerBerry.

“Investment security is our number one priority, and we will continue providing stability for our investors. Our business partners accumulate a reserve of 10% of the total loan portfolio in cash, which ensures that our partners can settle with investors if this needs to be done more quickly and in a relatively short time, and larger volumes. It is a very important security layer in these challenging times. The share of overdue loans on the PeerBerry platform currently is around 15%. And this is one of the best indicators in the entire P2P market. This shows that even in the most difficult market conditions, our partners can manage risks professionally” – explains A. Lekavičius, CEO of PeerBerry.

Highlights for November 2020

PeerBerry partners are preparing for the upcoming Christmas season and plan to issue about 30% more new loans in the coming months. It is good news for you, our investors, as higher lending volumes will lead to a higher need for our partners to borrow through PeerBerry, and for you, it will bring a higher investment return.

PeerBerry will continue to monitor the market and negotiate with its business partners for more attractive terms for investors. Interest rates were reviewed twice in October. There is a probability that interest rates may increase slightly in November too.
