    Right now Monestro has some of the highest interest rates among all peer to peer lending platforms. According to data provided by Monestro the average is 20% interest rate, which is just extremely high. As Monestro connects borrowers and lenders directly, this is one of the reasons why interest rates for lenders are higher at Monestro than in other platforms.

    Not that Monestro has commissions, it has a small commission for each withdrawal we make (in this case 40 cents), small commissions for purchases and sales in the secondary market … and for each Auto Invest that we activate from the third, we will have to pay … 5 euros! … so do not have more than 3 Auto Invest activated at the same time.

    In 2016, Monestro obtained the intermediary lender license by the Estonian Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA).

    Unlike other platforms of this type, in Monestro they are not loans pre-financed by the originator, but directly links the investor with the borrower.

    Like the majority of loan marketplaces among people like Bondora or Finbee, Monestro has NO Repurchase Guarantee on its loans , a fact that it tries to compensate by offering a gross return of starting higher than normal, (an average around 26 %)

    Loans are put up for auction, where investors make bids on loans based on real market conditions for given risk profiles. Investors can ask additional questions from the borrowers to make sure the risk is acceptable for them. Investors may also configure an automated bidding tool "Autoinvest" to help save time and to better diversify their portfolios.
