The process to invest on the Mintos platorm is relatively easy and not that complicated. Once you have transferred some funds into your account you can choose between either investing your funds manually or you could use the auto-invest option.
You can choose to invest manually or use the auto-invest option
I have chosen myself to use the auto-invest option. This is the most easy way of investing and I recommend to use this method when you do not want to invest too much time in selecting manually loan investments by yourself.
When you decide to go for the auto-invest option, you need to make a few choices to set-up the auto-invest options. I decided myself to use the following options:
- Loans with interest rates between 10% and 15%
- Loan terms between 3 months and 36 months
- EUR 10 investment in each loan
- To invest only in loans that provide buy-back guarantee
The option to invest in loans with buy-back guarantee is a very attractive feature that is offered by Mintos to manage the risk of your investments. The buyback guarantee means that if a loan is delayed by more than 60 days, the loan originator will repurchase the investment for the nominal value of the principal and accrued interest till the date of purchase. This happens automatically and it will not require any additional effort from the investors’ side.

Hence, I would definitively recommend you consider to use this option as well. In general, loans with a buyback guarantee come with a lower interest rate than loans without it. Having said so, you can still build a nice investment portfolio that is yielding between 10% and 15% if you decide to select this option.
I have currently invested €1,500 on the Mintos P2P platform. My current account balance amounts to €1,592.85. This means that I have achieved a total profit of €92,85 up till today with a net yield of 11.83%.
Based on my experiences so far on this platform, I am very positive about Mintos. This P2P consumer lending platform is offering highly attractive returns combined with a fun and user-friendly website user interface. Overall, mintos is currently one of my favorite peer-to-peer lending platform. I definitively plan to expand my investments further on this platform in future.
