The new year started out well for funding on the Bondora platform. All told, funding remained constant compared to the previous month, with €15,021,055 invested on the Bondora platform over the month. Investment in Portfolio Manager grew once again, up by 12.1% to €2,250,875. Investment in Portfolio Pro also grew, up to €3,131,797, gaining 3.5% on the month. API investment remained relatively consistent, but dipped slightly to €151,758.
Growth in other products cannot overtake Go & Grow
Portfolio Manager and Portfolio Pro both grew for the fourth consecutive month. Portfolio Pro jumped 2% to 21%, while Portfolio Manager totaled 15% of all Bondora investment, a 3% increase from December. Go & Grow remains the leading Bondora product with 63% share of all investments on the Bondora platform.
Will the trend continue?
It is now four straight months that investment has shifted out of Go & Grow and into Portfolio Manager and Portfolio Pro. Still, Go & Grow remains the most widely used product on the Bondora platform, but with this continuing trend, investors are clearly opting for more control of their investments through these other Bondora product offerings. It is unlikely Portfolio Manager or Portfolio Pro overtake Go & Grow as the most widely used product on Bondora, but their growth does point to a more well-rounded user base that is willing to adopt new p2p investment products over time.
