What are my benefits as an investor?

Investors can invest individually in different credit projects with very attractive risk-return profiles (credit rating grades). Further, investors are able to support borrowers and their projects. CreditGate24 links investors and borrowers directly; due to our online strategy, we avoid the large amount of overhead costs experienced by traditional credit suppliers. Investors and borrowers benefit equally from our cost-saving strategies. The security of our investors' investments is CreditGate24’s top priority. We guarantee this security through the following measures:

  • Every credit project must go through a strict and elaborate credit risk check
  • In case of death, the residual debt balance (up to CHF 100'000) is ensured for all rating categories and will not be transferred to the heirs.
  • We practice loan default pooling, wherein the effect of a loan default on single investors is minimized by distributing the effect of the loan default to all investors within the same rating grade
  • Strict supervision of all payment streams and systematic claims management.

Despite these efforts, the possibility of risk remains.  Therefore, we recommend you split your investments into projects with different credit rating grades.

What is a credit project share (CPS)?

CPS refers to the investors' quota in a current loan project. A CPS is defined by the amount, term, interest rate, and credit rating.
