Kuflink review: What I have experienced so far

Firstly, some words about opening account at Kuflink. For me it was easy process. However, Kuflink accepts only investors with UK bank account.

I’ve used many P2P platforms over the years and have continued to rapidly increase my investments in those that perform year on year. I’m only a few weeks in and it’s the tangible ROI in 12 months that will dictate if that rating improves or not. Simple set up is to be commended. Bi-directional communication has been prompt and accurate to date. A customer interface via an app that allows for finger print access would get you aligned with competitors.

All in all, Kuflink has a lot experience in p2p lending industry. They issued more than €50 million in loans, has a big amount of investors and offers to them attracting returns. Moreover, the platform has user-friendly and intuitive dashboard and nice portfolio management tool. Kuflink is supervised by the FCA (and that is a big advantage compared to other unregulated P2P platforms in Europe).
