Revolutionary: CreditGate24 launched the secondary market in the Switzerland as the first peer-to-peer-platform

Rüschlikon, 22.12.2016
The online credit specialist CreditGate24 offers its investors a secondary market from January 2017: Investors can now sell their existing loans whenever they need liquidity.

In the peer-to-peer model, individual loans are directly financed by investors. Previously, investors were bound by the agreed terms of the loans. Due to the secondary market, investors are able to get their money back before the end of the term. Registered investors can benefit from numerous advantages of the secondary market thanks to the innovative and unique CreditGate24 service in Switzerland:

  • Higher liquidity thanks to the opportunity to sell before the end of the term
  • Credit projects can be sold at a premium or a discount
  • Additional investment opportunities for buyers on the secondary market + Shorter terms with potentially lower credit risk
  • The secondary market is offered with no additional fees

Clever solution for investors

According to Teddy Amberg, Partner and Head Business Development at CreditGate24, an exciting innovation for investors at CreditGate24: „Our investors finance loans with terms of two or three years within a few days or hours. In the case of longer terms, private investors are sometimes reluctant, because they do not want to bind their money so long. The secondary market can solve this situation for investors and provides liquidity before the end of the term.“

Higher returns and greater flexibility

„CreditGate24 has financed more than 340 credit projects over the last two years - without a single default. Our model offers private and institutional investors attractive investment opportunities with fixed income returns between 4 and 7 percent. With our new service of the secondary market, investors are now even more flexible and can also finance shorter terms. CreditGate24 offers investment solutions for private and institutional investors and cooperates with banks and insurance companies." Christoph M. Mueller is CEO and founder of CreditGate24.
