PeerBerry review: What I have experienced so far…

Firstly, some words about opening account at PeerBerry. For me it was easy process, all I needed was to click Register and fill personal information. And that’s it. Later you can deposit funds to Paysera account (can take up to 2 working days) and start investing.

Secondly, some facts about my experience when using PeerBerry investment opportunities: as an investor you can choose to invest manually or do it in automated way. Both ways offers enough loan opportunities. I always try to use manual investment strategies because you can look more deeply into the loans when just by leaving everything to auto invest tool. The good thing about short-term loans is that you can easily access your money as the maturity of loans is around 30 days plus all loans have a 100% buyback guarantee (that is one the things that attracts P2P investors). However, there is not risk rating, and that is why I have chosen manual investment strategy in order to evaluate information provided at PeerBerry: such as loan amount, interest rate, term, country of issuance, and borrower details – age, gender, number of loans taken, the date when borrower became a customer of the loan originator. There is no secondary market, however there is no need for that as all loans are short term.

Thirdly, Peerberry do not send information to Tax Agencies or deducts taxes. So, you have to do it yourself.

All in all, PeerBerry is a young P2P marketplace, however they have already issued more than €59 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 autoinvest tool. On the other hand, PeerBerry operates in Latvia, where P2P lending market is not regulated (you have to take that into consideration). Overall, PeerBerry so far offers good returns and Buyback guarantee and this attracts P2P investors.
