Democracy is not a spectator sport. Join us as we do our part to democratize finance.JOIN COMMUNITY
Well-qualified borrowers use a P2P marketplace to avoid banks and turn instead to individual investors like you.
Instead of investing in an entire loan, worthy invests in fractions of loans in $25 increments. Investing in peer finance is a good way to counter the risk and price fluctuations of a traditional stock portfolio.
Worthy has no fees at all.
You will have to pay taxes on your investment returns like everyone else, but you'll be sent all the documents you'll need for tax season.
You are investing your money into fixed rate 5% loan notes which have a maturity of 1 year (although they can be cashed in anytime for a 1% fee). The bonds bought are purchased in $25 increments so a $25 investment will yield $1.25 over a period of a year. A $1,000 investment for example would earn $50 during that same one year period.
Access the Worthy app directly on your mobile device or computer and complete the short registration process after which you'll electronically deposit $25.00 from your checking or savings account in order to activate your account (this buys your first bond). Once your account is activated, round-ups will happen automatically on your everyday purchases using your credit or debit card and the bonds will be purchased automatically every time you accumulate $25.00 in rounded up “spare change”. But you don't have to wait for rounds-ups — you may also buy additional bonds any time you wish to see your savings grow!
“P2P” (peer to peer) is a term used to describe a new way for borrowers to secure a loan electronically from individual investors through a web based platform instead of a traditional bank. This industry, also referred to as Marketplace Lending, has grown significantly in the last 10 years. It allows the individual investors to benefit from the loan interest paid while the borrowers get their loan proceeds efficiently and cost-effectively.
“Crowdfunding” is a term used to describe a way for entrepreneurs / start-ups / emerging companies / individuals to attract capital using a combination of Internet platforms, contacts within one's social networks and the new regulations through the JOBS Act passed by Congress and signed by the President. The premise of crowdfunding is that it's easier to raise money in small increments from a lot of people rather than a large amount of money from one person. Unlike P2P lending, crowdfunding does not always offer a financial return — sometimes the person contributing money is doing so to “pre-order” a product that will be made with the contributed funds.
