WHAT IS BOLDYIELD?

BOLDYIELD is a peer-to-business crowdfunding platform, which allows everyone (individuals and institutions) to invest in high-quality real estate and cash-flow projects that are secured by collateral.

WHAT IS CROWDFUNDING?

Crowdfunding (CF) is the practice of raising funds for business development through the online platform from a large number of people. Crowdfunding becomes more and more popular for companies worldwide as a way of raising capital because it allows companies to reach funding easily and anyone to invest in selected businesses, industries, and regions.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

If you are a company that requires funds for the development and are ready to secure the loan, submit your offer to the platform and we will evaluate it, assign an overall risk level, and put it on the platform if it meets the requirements and we consider your project as safe. If you are an investor, you sign-up, login, get verified, and invest. When the project is finished you receive back your principal plus interest earned.

WHAT TYPE OF PROJECTS DOES BOLDYIELD OFFER?

Our focus is on real estate and cash-flow business financing. In future we plan to open the opportunity for the Investors to invest in the alternative investment funds and provide other type of projects.

WHAT DOES THE STATUS “OPEN” OF PROJECT MEAN?

The status "open" means that at this moment the project is in the process of funding and it is possible to invest in the particular project.

For Investors – the registration and use of our platform are free of charge. Our business model is based on providing intermediation services between Investors and Companies and all costs are imposed on Companies. More detailed fees can be viewed in our Pricing section.

WHAT IS EU CROWDFUNDING REGULATION?

Crowdfunding (CF) Regulation was implemented to protect investors, it introduces several requirements for platforms that must be fulfilled. It will come into force on November 10, 2021, and will harmonise the EU CF market - it will allow licensed CF platforms in one country to provide crowdfunding services across the EU and at the same time impose strict rules to protect Investors. BOLDYIELD is in the process of completing all of the requirements even before the regulation will come into force.

HOW MY INVESTMENT IS PROTECTED?

Before project listing on the BOLDYIELD, the thorough review, including risk scoring is done by our professional team and only most reliable projects are accepted. In the period of active investment, BOLDYIELD ensures regular monitoring of borrower business activities and results, industry and market trends and consider, if any changes have taken place, what measures need to be taken. It should be noted that each project is secured by collateral, meaning that in worst case scenario, you will receive your money back when the collateral is realised. Investor protection will be improved by the implementation of the Regulation on European Crowdfunding Service Providers requirements. BOLDYIELD is already following most of the requirements.

HOW DOES RISK SCORING WORKS?

Our professional team evaluates the project and its applicant, according to the risk level the points are assigned to several indicators in three categories: financial health, creditworthiness and company's record. According to the number of points obtained, the project is given an Overall risk rating from A-D, where A is the group of projects with the lowest risk. Projects with a risk rating D are not published on the platform. More information on risk scoring is available in the project description pages.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT THAT CAN BE INVESTED?

The minimum investment amount in BOLDYIELD projects is EUR 100. However, it can vary from project to project. Information in more detail is available in the description of each project.

HOW CAN THE CALCULATOR HELP?

With the calculator it is possible to determine the provisional return. The calculation is based on your preferred investment term, amount (EUR) and BOLDYIELD historical weighted average interest rate that includes all historical projects.

HOW IS THE WEIGHED AVERAGE INTEREST RATE CALCULATED?

The weighted average interest rate is calculated based on the interest rate of each historical BOLDYIELD project that has been funded and the money borrowed (project weight). By giving weight (the importance) for each project’s interest rate, the total weighted average interest rate is calculated.

HOW IS THE RETURN DETERMINED FOR EACH PROJECT?

The return is a risk-adjusted interest of the invested capital. It is determined by our risk assessment that consists of three pillars – Company’s financial health, creditworthiness and history. The evaluation takes into account the project, market situation, the borrower, experience of the management of the borrower and other criteria.

HOW IS THE RETURN CALCULATED?

The interest is calculated from the outstanding balance of the Loan Amount principal for each day from the disbursement date of the Loan Amount (included) up until the last day of the Loan Period (excluded). Interest calculation is based on the presumption of 365-days a year and the actual number of days a month.

WHEN DO I RECEIVE RETURNS?

You will receive return according to project details – interest is usually paid on a monthly or quarterly basis or at the end of the term. You will receive the principal at the end of the term, thus granting higher interest income.
