About Grupeer

Grupeer is a p2p lending platform where you can invest in business and real estate loans across worldwide countries (e.g. Finland, Denmark, Spain, Russia, Philippines). You will lend money to borrowers in exchange for monthly interests.

All investments come with BuyBack guarantee, which means that if a  borrower doesn’t pay you back your investment, this feature will kick-in to give you back your investment. In this platform case, it happens after 60 days.

When selecting an investment, information are provided such as the borrowing company information, investment description, ROI, repayment plan). Mostly projects provide you monthly interests and you receive back your invested amount (principal amount) at the end of the investment term.


Grupeer offers returns of 13.5% average (which is more than the 12% p2p lending market average) with loans ranging typically from 10% to 15% ROI.

How it works?

Here is how Grupeer works:

  • The credit companies (that we commonly call “loan originators”) receive an application from people that need to borrow money for example for a car, real estate, business or for personal expenses.
  • The Grupeer Marketplace displays open loans to investors once they have been risk-assessed (solvency) and validated by the credit company.
  • Investors (private or companies) view in the marketplace the list of open loans for investment and select the ones they want to invest in
  • Once the investor buys a share of a particular loan, a cession agreement is issued to the investor including the loan collateral (The collateral is an asset that a lender accepts as security for a loan. If the borrower defaults on the loan payments, the lender can seize the collateral and resell it to recoup the losses.)

how works grupeer

The figure below represents the structure between the three parties of the Grupeer business model: the loan originators (that generate new investment loans), the Grupeer platform that displays the new loan offers, the investors that lend money in return of interests.

grupeer loans process


Here is how it works if an investment defaults:

  • Given that all loans agreements are guaranteed by a BuyBack condition
  • If a borrower withholds a payment for more than 60 days
  • Then the related credit company (loan originator) has to buy back from the investor his share in this loan
  • Loan originators are required to invest at least 5% in the loans they issue, to mitigate risks. Technically we call it a 5% skin in the game.

How works Grupeer

Step 1: Deposit money

Transfer money from your bank account to your Grupeer account. You will have to indicate your Grupeer account ID in your transfer comment (the comment system is supported by all banks.). You must send your deposit from a EURO account. It usually takes 3-4 business days to receive your money. It is advised to first send a small deposit (e.g. €10) to make sure your transfer information is correct, and then to execute the “real” deposit.

Step 2: Choose the project to invest

Grupeer provides a nice search tool to find your ideal investment. Filter by investment type (mortgage, business or development loan), interest rate (usually 12 to 14%), investment term (usually 6 to 12 months), country, loans originator and LTV (loan ratio of total value).

You can also click on the loan ID to view a lot of additional information about what you are investing in.

Step 3: Select the investment amount

Once you have located the loan you want to invest it, decide how much you want to invest. You need to select at minimum €10. It is advised to do smaller investments and diversify them across multiple projects, loan originators and countries. You have the possibility to do that with this platform.

Step 5: Earn interests

You will receive monthly incomes from your investments. So you can expect to start receiving interests after 30 days after your first investment. Some of the investment also give you back a proportion of your invested money monthly, but most of them give it back to you at the end of the term.
