P2P lending is the only high return instrument to fetch monthly cash flows with interest payments. Unlike other/ traditional investing instruments, cash flow is not tied to maturity and starts immediately after the investment.Start Investing
Traditional instruments such as equity, forex, commodity etc. have high volatility inherent to them, resulting in notional or actual losses. P2P lending is unique in that way, which offers zero volatility with expected returns.Start Investing
Diversification of lending amount among many borrowers is default risk mitigation.
Optimal diversification can vastly improve the performance of your P2P investments. As a widely accepted practice, investors diversify their investment portfolio across various instruments to ensure that the collective performance of the portfolio sufficiently eclipses the losses of individual instruments. Similar principle is applied to P2P lending as well. For instance the performance of an investment amount of Rs. 10 lakhs divided into 20 borrowers (Rs. 50,000 each) could be majorly affected by even one default. Whereas, if a similar amount is divided between 500 borrowers (Rs.2,000 each), a couple of defaults won’t affect the collective returns of your portfolio in a big way. Optimal diversification ensures high returns.

The borrowers on our P2P lending platform come from a large demographic pool, primarily consisting of salaried individuals. Every borrower goes through a 5 step LenDen screening mechanism where borrower’s personal, professional and financial information is scrutinised by our digital verification mechanism and physical verification checks. On successful verification and confirmation of the borrower credentials, the profile is processed by our proprietary S-Algo (Screening Algorithm). The borrower is listed on the platform once the comprehensive sets of S-Algo criteria are met. We also visit each of the borrower’s house before his loan amount is transferred to his account. This ensures lesser borrower defaults and easy tracing of borrowers if at all he/she defaults.
We verify all personal details of the borrower including reference verification, residence verification.
Our credit team also verifies the professional details of the borrower, including office reference check.
Our field executives verify the professional and personal address of that borrower by doing surprise visits.
Borrowers financial details are verified by doing a thorough check of salary proof and bank statement analysis.
