Following the recent suspension of Rapido Finance on the Mintos Primary and Secondary Markets due to the loan originator’s failure to make timely payments to investors, there has been no new progress in payment transfers from Rapido Finance to Mintos investors. In the meantime, the management of Rapido Finance didn’t show any considerable effort to solve the matter. Such circumstances enable Mintos to take further steps in securing our investors’ interests.
As a result, Mintos has issued the loan originator a notice for the event of default. The notice states the default of Rapido Finance’s obligations that are described in the Agreement of Cooperation between Rapido Finance and the Mintos Marketplace.
The payment transfer dynamics to Mintos investors with active investments in loans offered by Rapido Finance will remain interrupted until the most suitable solution is put in place for the investors’ payment recovery. Investors with Rapido Finance loan investments will be regularly informed about the developments, as we aim to solve this issue as soon as possible.
We are thankful to our investors for their patience and understanding while we work on this matter.
With this notice, Rapido Finance Mintos Rating is downgraded to D. The rating change will be updated on the Mintos marketplace during this week.
