Merely seven months after the launch, peer-to-peer lending platform VIAINVEST has reached a milestone of 10 million EUR loans funded through its platform. Listed consumer loans issued by the alternative financial services provider VIA SMS Group in Czech Republic, Poland, Latvia and Spain were funded by investors from more than 30 countries.

Peer-to-peer lending platform VIAINVEST was launched in December 2016 and has grown significantly since then. “We are excited to be a part of a continuously growing peer-to-peer and fintech community,” says Eduards Lapkovskis, CEO of VIAINVEST. “Success of VIAINVEST shows that we have set the right goal – to deliver outstanding investor support service and bring added value instead of focusing on quantity. Currently, VIAINVEST offers unique investment portfolio and provides a solution to help investors manage tax issues arising from investing in the platform.”

While Germany remains the capital of peer-to-peer investors amounting to 44% of the total number of investors registered on VIAINVEST, Latvia and Estonia has also proved their interest in fintech and ranks, respectively, second with 11% and third – with 9% of the total number of investors. The average deposit on the platform is EUR 4136, and to date, VIAINVEST has paid out almost EUR 85 000 in interest.

In the nearest future, VIAINVEST is planning to expand its investment portfolio with new loan originators as well as developing several features to make investing more convenient, even when using mobile devices.

VIAINVEST is a part of the alternative financial services provider VIA SMS Group operating across Europe. VIAINVEST offers both private individuals and legal entities to invest in consumer loans originated by VIA SMS Group subsidiaries in Latvia, Czech Republic, Poland and Spain.
