Visit to Crowdestate

I visited Crowdestate this fall, in the Estonian capital Tallinn. I intended to publish this report earlier, but I was still awaiting more detailed answers to some questions I asked during my visit. And of course I wasn’t too busy to forget it (ahum..). My guess is that Crowdestor has the prettiest office location of …

November 2019: stable above 900 euro

This is the fourth month in a row where my interest income is around 900 euro or above, a good indication that it may stay this way. Somewhere next year I hope this will go over, and stay above, 1,000 euros per month. Investors in The Netherlands need to write down the sum of their …

October 2019: vacation update

In this monthly update I’ll show you the returns and results of my crowdfunding and crowdlending investments. It is a bit shorter than usual, because I’m currently on vacation. Diving under water has higher priority right now than diving in the world of P2P 🙂 A second P2P platform in trouble, after Lendy in May. …

Visit to Bondora

In Tallinn, Estonia, I visited the Bondora office. The office building is located a 15 minute drive outside of the old historical town center. I talked to Temmy (Temiloluwa Adetola), Investor Relations Associate at Bondora. I used Bolt to get to Bondora, and it is similar to Uber. It was an awesome experience. You use the …

Visit to EstateGuru

Last month I visited EstateGuru in Tallinn, Estonia. Here I talked to Bert Reila, the Affiliate Marketing Manager. The EstateGuru office is located within walking distance of the historical old town centre. This was convenient, as I stayed in a hotel in the middle of the old town, and the walk took less then 15 …

September 2019: portfolio update

This month my income from P2P lending is below my first target again. Last month was the first time I reached that goal, but that was caused by a large interest payment for a project: the interest for the first 6 months was paid after that period. But to be honest, I thought this month’s …

August 2019: first target reached!

I have reached my first target, wow! More than 1,000 euro interest in a single month. One of the projects at Crowdestor paid the interest for the first 6 months at once, so next months a will be a lot lower. Hopefully it won’t take long before it stays above this target! This month I …

Visit to Kuetzal

Last month I had the chance to visit the Kuetzal office in Riga. The appointment was at 9 o’clock in the morning, and Romans Antonovs (the project manager) was so kind to pick me up at my apartment. After a cup of coffee I talked to Alberts Cevers (CEO and co-founder of Kuetzal) and Romans …
