What is Swisspeers?

Swisspeers runs a direct marketplace lending platform, which means it operates the "traditional" or "pure" P2P lending model and serves as an online space where borrowers can apply for loans and investors can fund projects. Swisspeers is operated by Swisspeers AG, headquatered in Switzerland. It’s associated with a self-regulatory organisation in Switzerland - Association for the Quality Assurance of Financial Services (VQF).

Swisspeers makes it possible to provide funding to business owners by investing in business loans. You can also apply for funding if you are a business owner.

What does Swisspeers offer?

At Swisspeers, you can invest in projects denominated in CHF starting from CHF1,000. You can also set up an auto-invest feature and buy and sell loans on a secondary market.

Swisspeers separates investors’ funds from the platform company assets but doesn’t have a wind-down plan in place to ensure minimal damage in case the platform goes out of business. It discloses statistics about its funded loans on a dedicated public page and shares its monthly funding volumes with P2PMarketData.
