Howdy. We're open during all alert levels, operating remotely and our advisers are ready to help. Take care out there!
At Squirrel, we're known as one of the largest mortgage brokers in New Zealand. But what you might not know is that we are also a lender, which means we can make a portion of those loans available as investments for retail investors. This gives investors better opportunities for their cash funds.
We haven’t published a case study for a while, so here are two that will provide an overview of the borrowers and loans you’re investing in.
There’s been a lot happening here at the Squirrel garage and lots of movement in the financial world, so here’s an update on quite a few things.
Earlier this year we launched our P2P Home Loans and Business Property Loans that give investors access to residential first mortgage investments with returns of up to 5% p.a. As interest rates have fallen, investors are looking for better returns.
An update on Investor activity, interest rates, how our borrowers are tracking with the current economy and a general overview of our platform.
One of the common things we’ve heard from our Investors is that they want to keep their money working as hard as possible at all times. One of the features we offer that helps with this is Recurring Investment Orders which is like a 'set and forget' auto-investing function.
As mentioned in our first case study, we’re providing some case studies of our borrowers and this time we’ll look at one of our Business Property Loans, the second new investing class on the Squirrel platform returning 5% p.a.
As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency for our investors, we're sharing a couple of case studies about the type of lending we are doing in our new investing classes: Home Loans and Business Property Loans. We were confident in approving these loans and what their characteristics are, and by sharing this we hope to pass some of that peace of mind to our investors.
It’s day 12 of the Covid-19 lockdown in New Zealand. The world is still feeling uncertain and whilst we don't have a crystal ball, what we can do is give complete transparency about how our P2P platform is doing.
