Monthly comments

Interest payments in January was fully in line with our expectations.

Current loans represented 76.1% of the value of the portfolio at the end of January an increase of almost 2%-point during the month. At the same time loans 60+ days late increased slightly.

In January, an auction related to a delayed property loan unfortunately were not settled and the property will have to reauctioned. Staying with our cautious approach we have taken provision of 0.02%.

The return for the month of January 2021 was 0.60%.

Since inception, Quantrom P2P Lending has given a return of 34.09% and outperformed the long-term return target by 7.36%-points.
