i2iFunding is much more than P2P market place. Apart from providing end to end loan servicing, i2i diligently evaluates the credit risk of each of the loan projects, post which it assigns risk category and recommends an interest rate for that project (a borrower can borrow at an interest rate which is higher than or equal to this rate). This helps the borrowers as well as the investors to have a benchmark interest rate. In the process, the investors get an opportunity to earn higher 'risk adjusted returns' while the borrowers get an opportunity to get funded at the lowest cost possible as per their risk profile and market based demand. We also provide legal and recovery support to investors in case of default by any borrower. On top of that we also have, Principal Protection in place for investors to ensure we have our skin in the game.
i2i is all set to change the way in which financial transaction s are being currently carried out. Traditional financial systems due to their high operating costs such as high office rentals, high employee costs etc. are unable to diligently assess each of the customers as per their risk profiles. Therefore, they consider the retail loans (i.e. loans offered to individual persons) as 'flow' business which results in customers with varying credit quality getting bucketed together. This is not only unfair to borrowers with high credit quality but also leads to inefficient utilization of financial resources.
