Why did you choose SeedIn?
Kevin: I came across SeedIn through their online advertisement. If I remember correctly, I saw an ad which attracted me with some ‘support local SMEs message.’
I clicked through to the ad and found out more about how SeedIn works on its website. It was a sound concept, and as I was looking to diversify my investment portfolio, I decided to just sign up to try investing a small sum. I was hesitant at first thinking that it may be a troublesome sign up process. However the signup was quick and smooth as everything was done online.
Why have you stayed with us?
Kevin: I have been with SeedIn since 2016, and actively investing on the platform’s deals for close to 3 years now. The initial small sums that I ‘experimented’ investing on the SeedIn’s platform have seen stable and good returns. Hence I now consider myself an ‘experienced’ member of the platform. I also like the SMEs that SeedIn curated. So far on my investment journey with SeedIn, I have not experienced any SMEs default. That is one of the major reasons why I’m very comfortable with the platform, I feel like I’m part of the community.
What is your personal view, in general, of SeedIn, the Marketplace Lending Platform?
Kevin: Besides their excellent customer service and investor relation updates that I receive, one thing that I noticed is the ‘community vibe’ of the platform. It feels like we are backing the SMEs when we participate in the loan deals that SeedIn curates. I have attended a few seminars they have hosted and it has made me realise that we do play a key role in helping SMEs, I’ve learnt that they make up 99% of our local enterprises. It gives me a sense of fulfilment that I am able to make a difference, especially being an SME owner myself. SeedIn will continue to be one of the alternative investment channel for me to diversify my portfolio.
