Why Go & Grow works: It’s all thanks to…

Nothing beats Go & Grow when it comes to simple investing. Released to investors a little over two years ago, it’s our most popular product, and used by all kinds of investors. From beginners looking for a simple, hands-free experience, to more seasoned investors who want to diversify their portfolios and be hands on with their investments. It’s a one-size-fits-all solution that is loved by over 92,000 happy investors.

But what exactly is it that makes Go & Grow work so well? What’s the ‘secret formula’ that makes it investors’ preferred way to grow their money? It’s all thanks to portfolio distribution. In this post, we’re breaking down and explaining all the details of the Go & Grow portfolio, so you can understand exactly where your money is going, and how it’s growing 🌱

Bondora risk ratings

Diversification is Bondora’s middle name. That’s why Go & Grow spreads its claims across eight different risk ratings—ranging from AA to HR.

At the moment, HR is the rating with the lowest representation (2.2%), followed by A (3%) and AA (5.8%). The largest distributions are in E and F rated loans (27.1% and 26.6% respectively), followed by D (17.3%) and C (11.9%) rated loans.

🧩 Did you know that Go & Grow consists of over 109,000 loan claims? That’s what you call next level diversification.

Distribution by country

Estonia continues to gain territory, holding the largest share of the loan origination total with 44%. Finland is only 3% behind, taking second place with 41%. Spain accounts for the minority of the distribution, with 15%. However, we expect Spain to take on a much more prominent role in our originations in the future.

What are people investing for?

We’ve used the data from the investment goal feature to determine what people are investing for. 59.8% of investors aim for extra income, but seeing as this is our default goal option, these numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. The second most popular goal is Investing for a Rainy Day (11.4%), with Retirement (11.1%) coming a close third.
