Investment by product
Reaching a new record-high, investments rose by 12.6%, equaling €23,256,640. Go & Grow received €23,204,495, increasing from €18,652,183.
Due to the closure of Portfolio Manager and Portfolio Pro, these two products will not get any future new investments and will not be included in this graph.
On the other hand, the API remains open and saw a growth spurt from €10,655 to €51,712. We can expect this growth to continue, but Go & Grow will likely have the overwhelmingly largest share of investments.
Naturally, after the closure of Portfolio Manager and Portfolio Pro, their shares of investments are now virtually 0. And as a result, you’ll mostly see Go & Grow’s 99% share. The API makes up the remaining share:

In Spain, we made internal risk-scoring calculation changes and are consolidating C and D-rated loans into E and F-rated loans. This process is still ongoing and will give you a more realistic picture of our portfolio.
In the Netherlands, only A-rated loans are currently originated, taking a 1.6% total share, up 0.6% from February.
