In what currencies can I make an investment?
Currently investments are accepted in EUR.
Can I cancel my investments?
Unfortunately, approved investments cannot be cancelled. To get your funds back you need to wait until the loan agreement is closed or a Buyback Guarantee is activated.
What happens in case of borrower late or non-payments?
If the loan secured with the Buyback Guarantee is late for more than 30 days, the loan originator will repurchase particular loan at the nominal value of outstanding principal plus accrued interest income.
Do I also receive interest if the loan is extended?
Yes, you will always receive interest for the whole period when your funds are invested in the loan - actual loan term as well as delayed period and/or extension period (if such).
What are loan types available on the platform?
Currently, VIAINVEST lists 3 types of loans:
Short-term loan - fixed-term consumer loan with a maturity that varies between 7 to 30 days. The borrower is required to repay the full loan amount within the set loan term or to extend the loan term. In the case of delay, the Buyback Guarantee comes into the force on the 31st delayed day. VIAINVEST lists short-term loans issued in Poland, Czech Republic and Spain.
Instalment loan - a consumer loan with a maturity that varies from 3 to 12 months. The borrower is required to repay the loan within the set term by making constant monthly payments. In the case of delay, the Buyback Guarantee comes into the force on the 31st delayed day. VIAINVEST lists short-term loans issued in Latvia.
Credit line - a consumer loan with an open-ended agreement. The borrower may choose the repayment terms - either to repay the full loan amount after 30 days or to make monthly payments until the full amount borrowed is repaid. For VIAINVEST investor this means that in case of full repayment after 30 days everything happens the same as with short-term loans, but if the borrower makes monthly payments, the investor receives a part of the invested principal and earned interest every month (with every payment the borrower has made). The borrower may also raise the loan amount during the repayment process. In the case of delay, the Buyback Guarantee comes into the force on the 31st delayed day. VIAINVEST lists credit lines loans issued in Latvia.
Regardless of the loan type, investor can also exit his investment after 120 days since the investment date.
