Genuine investors seeking to lend to genuine borrowers
i2i is a peer to peer lending (P2P lending) market place which for the FIRST TIME provides the investors an opportunity to lend to retail borrowers at an interest rates up to 30%, thereby earning high returns on investments, earlier available to banks, NBFCs etc. This is coupled with Principal protection to provide additional security on your investment. Extent of protection depends on the borrower risk category as given below
|Risk Category||% Protection|
i2i has an in-house underwriting team which assesses the credit risk of each borrower using i2i’s proprietary Credit Score Model based on 50+ parameters apart from CIBIL Score (or other such credit score). It assigns an i2i Risk Category from A – F to each of the loans, A being the category with the strongest credit profile and F being the weakest. Along with risk category, i2i also recommends an interest rate (i2i Recommended Interest Rate) for each loan. A borrower can borrow at an interest rate which is higher than or equal to this rate. Higher the borrower's interest rate above i2i Recommended Interest Rate, higher is the 'risk adjusted return' for the investors. Please note that an investor should invest in multiple loan projects to mitigate risks associated with a single loan. "More diversified is the portfolio, lower is overall risks and investors have better chances to make high returns".
i2i takes care of the tedious and complex task of controlling and assessing the credit quality of loans. Each loan undergoes a thorough selection process by i2i's in-house team.
