Is my funds safe in KoinWorks?
Lenders’ funds are stored and operated in a separate bank account dedicated solely for our customers. KoinWorks only runs transactions on that account based on our customers’ instructions on the platform. Customers can always access their funds through their KoinWorks account.
Who are the Borrowers?
At KoinWorks you lend directly to real people and real businesses, not in abstract financial paper products. Our borrowers apply for loans for constructive purposes, such as growing their business, getting their finances into a better shape, education and health.
All KoinWorks borrowers must complete several screening and verification processes to get a loan. They will be also put through a credit analysis process that include borrower’s credit reports, loan applications and our proprietary algorithm to evaluate their credibility and ability to service the loan. Keep in mind that our loans have different grades, categorized based on their different levels of risk.
How does it work on lenders side?
We cut the costs and inefficiencies prevalent in traditional banking and give more values to borrowers and lenders. Creditworthy borrowers are connected to Lenders who look for better returns.
After borrowers applications get verified, evaluated and KoinWorks determines the credit scoring and interest rate. After that the loan request is presented to lenders for open bid.
How do you manage risk?
Defaults is a part of a reality in lending activities as there are always risks that borrowers cannot repay their loans. We advise that lenders read the information here and in other sources so that they thoroughly understand the risks associated with lending their money.
Given these risks, KoinWorks manages risk in a number of ways:
Quality and Rating
We use Big Data to complement or replace conventional methods and run our proprietary algorithm. Only qualified borrowers are approved.
For qualified borrowers, we assign credit grades on loans that pass our credit assessment. Loans are graded from A to E based on their risk level with 5 subgrades each. Riskier loans are assigned higher interest rates to compensate the lenders for taking more risk.
As part of our commitment to protect Lenders, KoinWorks sets aside capital to set up the Fund and will forego part of our revenues to continue adding to it. The fund is dedicated to limit the losses from our Lenders in the event of borrower default.
Because our Platform enables you to fund loans in small increments, you can spread your funds into various allotments of loans with different risks, interest rates, lengths, industries and other differentiating features which will fit your lending goals.
We work with great partners to ensure better-quality underwriting of loans and to provide a better experience for our members.
