PRINCIPAL RECOVERY RATES ACROSS MARKETS

As the Bondora platform has developed we’ve enacted more stringent collection strategies. For example, we hand over the overdue loan cases to debt collection agents just one week after the borrower misses a payment. Additionally to in-house debt collection, our partnerships with external debt collection agencies and legal entities in Estonia, Finland and Spain have all helped us track down debtors more efficiently. We believe these reinvigorated efforts will yield improving results over time. In fact, we initiated many of these practices in 2016 which may explain the total improved recovery averages jumping from 44% to nearly 60% from 2015 to 2016.
