Slight shifts, as the overall trend remains

There was a slight shift in investment out of Portfolio Pro and into Portfolio Manager, as Portfolio Pro’s total share dropped to 19%, while Portfolio Manager garnered 16% of all Bondora investments on the platform.
Will the new trend last?
In the last year, Go & Grow has steadily climbed to becoming the most widely used product on Bondora. If the past few months are any indication, Go & Grow has supplanted its place as the tool that Bondora customers feel most comfortable using. This is because of its stability, solid returns*, and automated nature which makes it easy for anyone, no matter what their financial knowledge, to invest.
At the same time, Portfolio Pro and Portfolio Manager options still give investors the opportunity to customize their investments based on a specific investment strategy or preference. This gives Go & Grow customers other options to explore when they are ready.
