FMPP vs other fixed-maturity investment options

In this blog, we shall take a look at why LenDenClub’s FMPP is a better alternative to traditional fixed-income asset classes. To begin with, we shall understand the entire mechanism of how P2P, in general, and FMPP, in particular, offer a resolution to challenges with the traditional investment avenues, and then enumerate the benefits of investing in FMPP.

Challenges with traditional investment avenues

The investment market is replete with fixed-term, fixed-maturity investment options. After all, term-based investment avenues have their own shares of benefits. They offer fixed returns upon maturity. 

Fixed-term, fixed-maturity investment avenues are great for portfolio diversification. High returns-yielding options, namely market-linked investment instruments, are conditional upon numerous factors on which the market is so precariously dependent. Hence, fixed deposits and recurring deposits, and post office investments are a safe bet for prudent investors. 

The only shortcoming with such traditional investment avenues, however, is that they yield very low returns, so much so that they don’t even outdo the inflation rate. This is because the traditional investment avenues work on an age-old bank-pooled financial model; the facilitating companies, namely banks and the post office, work on a mediator-heavy mechanism. Right from the loan application to the approval stages from the borrowers’ side and right from the selection to the lending stages on the lenders’ side, banks have numerous working heads involved. Most traditional fixed-income asset classes do not yield good returns; the returns yielded do not even outdo the inflation rate. This is because they work on age-old mediator-enabled and thus mediator-heavy financial models. Thus, a huge chunk of potential earnings for an investor, i.e. a lender, to be lost in commission. 

P2P (Peer-to-Peer) lending is the answer to all the problems with the traditional investment avenues and thus is regarded as a new-age investment avenue. 

What makes P2P investment so lucrative?

P2P investment is an answer to challenges the traditional banking financial model is inherent with. A P2P platform like LenDenClub convenes investors who want to earn competitive returns with creditworthy borrowers who want instant loans with convenience. Thus, by disintermediating the financial mechanism, a P2P platform offers higher rates of interest to investors. LenDenClub, the biggest P2P Lending Platform in India, has delivered a consistent portfolio of 10 to 12% p.a.* returns since 2017.

Besides, being a FinTech, LenDenClub makes it easier for investors to go about investing through its fully digital platform. One can either download the LenDenClub app from the Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore or log on to the LenDenClub website, and then create an account and start investing. 

One can even take a look at the dashboard and portfolio performance with few clicks, and track the growth of their wealth. 

FMPP, an all-rounded investment solution

FMPP, the Fixed-Maturity Peer-to-Peer Plan from LenDenClub, has been designed such that it gives returns higher than many traditional fixed-income asset classes. It also overcomes the shortcomings of other P2P investment plans.

Starting with an investment amount as low as ₹10,000, FMPP gives returns of up to 10 to 12% p.a.* The returns’ range comes from the historical performance of the platform and its AI- and ML-enabled nature. The ty comes from the principle of hyper-diversification, which is unique to FMPP. 

All in all, FMPP’s unique algorithm has been devised such that nearly everyone earns the propositional returns rate–a phenomenon called platform-level uniformity; this redefines P2P investment. 

FMPP, owing to its well-balanced nature, i.e. offering inflation-beating returns and being non-market-linked, also competes against share market investments, mutual funds, etc. Whether portfolio diversification or a one-point investment solution, FMPP excels in both.

Things that make FMPP unique

In devising FMPP, LenDenClub has taken numerous factors into consideration. Things like non-market-link nature, compliance, inflation-beating returns proposition, and so forth are at the core of the investment plan. Thus, FMPP offers the following features.

  1. Returns: Stability as a component makes an investment avenue worry-free. P2P, not being prone to market volatility, is inherently not subject to market risks. In FMPP, owing to its unique hyper-diversification principle, the funds are allocated as low as ₹1 per borrower. This means that the returns are risk-mitigated, giving Marginalised NPA. Thus, LenDenClub uniquely offers Systematic Risk Mitigation with FMPP.
  2. Auto-investment: Convenience is at the core of new-age investment avenues. LenDenClub, a leader in India’s P2P lending sector and a prominent player in the FinTech sphere, has ensured utmost convenience to its investors with FMPP. The on-boarding of borrowers on the platform, selection of borrowers for allocation of funds, hyper-diversification of funds for maintaining platform-level uniformity in returns, etc are some features carried out automatically by the platform. This makes investing in FMPP hassle-free. One can even turn auto-renewal on or off for a particular FMPP from the dashboard.
  3. Power of compounding: As pointed above, fixed-term, fixed-maturity investment avenues are known to yield fixed returns consistently over an extended period. FMPP, with its committed-term nature, helps an investor earn compound interest on returns. Hence, it comes with flexible tenures of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 years. For a term of five years, one can earn yield of 12.21 to 15.25% p.a. 

Conclusion

With features like returns that are and high, unparalleled measures of reducing NPA, tech-enabled nature, and high yield at maturity, FMPP poses not only as a strong contender against traditional fixed-income asset classes but also as a great alternative investment avenue.
