Cumulative recovery rate rises for the 11th month

It’s always encouraging to see recovery rates rise, and that’s precisely what happened in November. The total recovery rate from 2014 to 2020 rose slightly from 40.83% to 40.87%. This came from a rise in recoveries from missed payments in 2014 (49.30%) and 2019 (50.39%). As for the most recent year, the recovery rate for 2020 fell by only 0.12% to 42.76%. This remains higher than the seven-year average of 40.87%.

Estonian recoveries are on fire

Another month brought another rise in the Estonian recovery rate in 2020, which climbed by 4.8% to a strong 52.0%. In fact, the recovery rate for missed Estonian loan payments also rose for 2019 (56.7%), 2015 (61.6%), and 2014 (78.2%).

The 2014 Estonian rate surpassed the 2020 rate of recovery in Spain (75.9%) as the highest recovery rate on Bondora over the past seven years. 2020 recoveries in Finland seemed to slide, coming in at 21.9%, which is 1.6% lower than last month. This is the lowest recovery rate for Finnish missed payments since loans were originated in 2014.
