People can borrow to renovate or build a property, buy a car or acquire consumer goods. You can best compare it with “old-fashioned” mortgage deeds with different types of collateral.
Investing in Quantrom is done by subscribing to of profit participation notes, which is a financial investment where the noteholder gets a share of the profit each month. Our profit participation note is accumulating, which means that the profit of each month is added to the value of the note.

Quantrom Peer-2 Peer Lending DAC is an investment company that invests in tranches of peer-to-peer loans predominantly in Eastern Europe. It is an investment vehicle managed by Quantrom Ltd.
In Eastern Europe, the need for financing for both private individuals and businesses is in high demand leading to the fact that interest rates are typically higher than in Western Europe.
Our main focus is on investing in consumer loans, business loans, car loans and property loans.

Doran + Minehane conducts an examination and screening of all our investors into Quantrom P2P Lending DAC, to ensure that Quantrom P2P Lending DAC does not participate in any money laundering activities or terrorist financing.
You invest in a product or vehicle that invests into selected P2P loans from selected loan originators on selected platforms in the European P2P lending market. Quantrom has developed a selection process to find the most appropriate P2P platforms that cooperate with financially stable loan originators, which place P2P loans on these platforms.
As with all types of investments there are risks associated with them. We have developed a selection process to find the most suitable P2P loans in the EU market and we monitor our portfolio’s performance in line with our Risk Management Policy and Investment Guidelines.
Obviously, the main risk of investing in P2P loans is the risk that the borrowers do not repay their loans. We have taken the following measures to reduce this risk: All loans are established according to a set procedure by the platform or loan originator, which must have assessed the borrower’s repayment capacity.
For certain types of loans (e.g. mortgages and car loans), collateral is provided that can be applied in the event of a default on the loan, which reduces the risk of capital loss of our investment.
For certain types of loans (e.g. corporate loans) other credit enhancements are carried out, including suretyship from the business owner.
For the majority of the loan portfolio, however, loan originators have committed themselves to repurchase the loans in the absence of interest and repayments over a period of more than 60 days.
Finally, Quantrom strives to have a very large diversification of P2P loans, across different countries, borrowing purposes (or sectors), various platforms, financially sound loan originators and individual borrowers to further secure your investment.

Peer-to-Peer, or P2P, lending is a new investment solution that had its start during the financial crisis in the United States and UK.

Loan originators may be regulated and supervised by each country’s financial supervisory authority.
The investment is at your own personal risk and investors must be aware of and understand the risks associated with the investment and that you can lose parts or all of your investment in Quantrom.
In fact, investors are not subject to any financial compensation scheme from a public authority.
How liquid is the underlying investment?
Investing in Peer-to-Peer, or P2P, loans is a long-term investment. Signed loan agreements cannot be terminated from the lender and therefore P2P loans are illiquid by nature. There is sometimes a secondary market where loans can be traded, however, it is not particularly liquid.

There are two types of loans: 1) loans with collateral and 2) loans without collateral.
For loans with collateral, the collateral can be in the form of properties, cars or for corporate loans production equipment.
Consumer loans are typical loans without collateral.
How is the collateral assessed?
The value of the collateral is assessed by an expert within the category of the loan. It can be a property expert regarding real estate financing or an “in-house” expert in the field of e.g. car loans.
What happens if the borrower does not pay?
In cases where the debtor/borrower does not pay his interest and installments in a timely manner, the platform or loan originator will contact the borrower with a commemorative letter (can also be in the form of SMS and/or mail).
If payments continue to be missed, the platform or loan originator will try to find a solution if necessary by extending the maturity of the loan to enable the borrower to meet his/her payment obligation. As a last resort, the claim will be handed over to the legal debt collection and, where appropriate, the collateral sold to cover all or part of the outstanding loan amount.
