What is Profitus?
Profitus is not exactly a P2P platform, but a peer-to-business crowdfunding platform from Vilnius, Lithuania, founded in 2017.
The platform offers P2P loans that real estate developers use to finance their projects.
Since its inception, the platform has brokered more than €96 million worth of loans, making it one of the smaller P2P platforms in Europe.
How does Profitus make money?
Profitus makes its money through the commissions it charges real estate developers.
Otherwise, there are no significant income opportunities, as the platform is free for investors.
Possibly there would be the sales fees on the secondary market, but these are probably of little importance.
Who owns Profitus?
The owners are Viktorija Cijunskyte and Mindaugas Vanagas, who founded the platform using only their own capital.
How safe (reputable) is Profitus? Is Profitus legal?
As mentioned above, the platform is officially supervised by the Lithuanian Financial Market Authority.
Moreover, Profitus has successfully funded loans in a large enough volume, which undoubtedly speaks for a serious and legal business model.
Therefore, we have no doubts about its safety.
How does Profitus work?
To invest on Profitus, you first need to register online and then deposit money via a bank transfer.
With your first deposit via a standard bank transfer you also confirm the bank account to which withdrawals can be made.
After that you can invest directly in the offered credits.
There is a minimum investment amount of 100 € and you can invest manually or automatically.
When investing, you can use the primary market (first issue of loans) or the secondary market (loans from other investors).
How can I invest on Profitus?
You can choose any loan you want to invest in on the platform.
This makes sense, among other things, if you are just starting to invest and do not want to wait for Auto Invest to invest for you.
Or if you want to invest in the secondary market, because you cannot automatically invest in the loans on the secondary market.
With the Auto Invest automatic investment feature, you can specify which loans you want to invest in within a short time.
The following settings are possible:
Investment per loan,
We like the Auto Invest from Profitus* because it makes a tidy impression and has all the important settings in our opinion.
Within minutes, you can specify which loans you want to invest in.
