- 29.40% annualized internal rate of return for the crowdlending portfolio.
- -5.08% cumulative performance for the equity portfolio.
- 1 main residence in the course of purchase.
Returning to work after summer holidays has been difficult. And for you? Also the world economy is being undermined by President Donald Trump, result my portfolio equity launch begins with a decline.
But luckily, my crowdlending portfolio is doing well. And real estate, a big project is preparing!
NB # 1: You can find the trick to translate all crowdlending platforms into French on my crowdlending platform selection page .
NB # 2: I opened the comments at the bottom of the articles. Otherwise go to my Facebook page .

3W3 Equity Portfolio
My investment strategy with ETFs is a long-term strategy. It requires confidence and acceptance of market downturns. The max drawdown can be important. Given the consolidation of the current market it is possible that the coming months are negative.
Net value of the equities portfolio
The net value of the 3W3 portfolio is $ 7873.77 .
Monthly performance of the equities portfolio
The cumulative performance is -5.08% .
P2P Portfolio (crowdlending platforms)
Reminder of my strategy
I manage my crowdlending asset allocation as an investment portfolio . That is, rule number one is security. To secure my invested capital I diversify my asset allocation .
On the stock market it is recommended to invest in a basket of shares or ETFs through several brokers. In crowdlending I have been investing in a multitude of projects across multiple P2P lending platforms .
P2P Portfolio Tracking
You can find my full portfolio here .
The net value of the P2P portfolio is 3327.63€ .
The internal rate of return (annualized) with bonuses is 29.40%.
Envestio (here is my Envestio review) is the first peer to peer lending platform in which I have invested. The average interest rate is 18% +. Which makes Envestio very attractive. The projects are financed in a few hours, see in a few minutes for the most attractive ones.
- XIRR: 30.20%
- Value: 2008.00€
- Monthly passive income: 48,28€

I use Fastinvest’s self-investing tool to invest continuously.
As a reminder, the self-investing tool automatically invested the specified capital in accordance with fixed rate ranges and durations. For more info you can read my Fastinvest review .
- XIRR: 11.57%
- Value: 212.75€
- Monthly passive income: 2.28€

Grupeer is also a crowdlending platform in which I wanted to invest from the beginning.
First, all loans are secured with BuyBack Guarantee . This means that if the borrower goes bankrupt, the partner, the originator of the loan, is required to buy back the loan in default and ensure the repayment of principal and interest in full.
Secondly the Grupeer platform offers an interface in French .
As for Fastinvest I use a self-investing tool. More information in my Grupper review.
- XIRR: 12.37% .
- Value: 212.72€

Account opened at Crowdestor in May 2019.
Loan interest rates are very attractive: 18%, 18.5% and 21% . Crowdestor comes directly to compete with Envestio .
The rate of return on the Crowdestor portfolio is down on July and August. This is normal because the timing of interest payments differs depending on the loan.
- TRI: 6.59%
- Investment: 200,00€
- Monthly passive income: 0,75€

Bondora is a little out of the box with its ultra customizable interface in French . It took me a while to get used to it. Bondora is a crowdlending platform that offers 3 investment methods .
To test the platform I went on a Portfolio Pro oriented high performance. Who says high performance, says risk . Loans are denoted D, E and F.
Here are my settings. I invite you not to copy them but to play with the parameters of the Portfolio Pro to get an idea of the risk and the possible profitability.
This portfolio is without the most risky of all. By cons it is very diversified. This is one of the advantages of Bondora, it is possible to invest very small sums .
The next step will probably be to test Bondora’s Go & Grow portfolio.
The internal rate of return has taken off!
This strong increase is due to the bonuses which are important proportionally to the invested capital. It must also be taken into account that the calculation of the IRR here is annualized. However the TRI off bonus (w / o bonuses) is for the moment incredible .
- XIRR: 449.04% .
- Value: 179,18€
- Monthly passive income: 34.76€

2 investments made at Crowdestate.
Crowdestate also offers an automatic investment tool. Personally I do not need it. I do not know yet if I will invest more funds.
- XIRR: 8.24%.
- Value: 205.41€
- Monthly passive income: 1.00€
- Click here to see details of my Crowdestate investments .
After setting up the auto-invest tool, all my capital was invested in 4 projects . Bulkestate offers very interesting interest rates. However, not all projects offer monthly payments.
This makes Bulkestate a good deal for long-term investors who want to block their funds over a period of time.
For my part I prefer to receive passive income every month . My first interest must be paid in September.
- XIRR: 3.70%
- Value: 100.90€
- Monthly passive income: 0,90€

Kuetzal is the latest added platform. I submitted a first contribution in August 2019.
Kuetzal is a very attractive rate offers up to 21% per year. This crowdlending platform finance loans for European projects, companies and start-ups.
The timing of interest payments varies by project. On the other hand most of the projects benefit from Kuetzal Care.
Kuetzal Care guarantees that a certain project will eventually be financed, regardless of the amount of funds invested by Kuetzal investors. If the project does not reach the goal, Kuetzal uses its own funds to cover the gap between the amount invested and the target amount.
Kuetzal has agreements with investment funds, banks and authoritative private investors who are ready to participate in Kuetzal projects at any time. This creates an additional guarantee that each project will eventually be funded on the targeted amount.
Loans are subject to a buyback guarantee, cf quote from Kuetzal FAQ.
How does the buy-back guarantee work?
Investment buy-back is provided by the platform, not by the project owners. Along with them we have personal guarantee from project owners and in some projects collateral (mainly real estate).
10% penalty is taken in case you are willing to cancel your investment before the end of term.
In the worst case scenario, if project announces default, Kuetzal guarantees to cover 100% of investment during next 2 months after default is accounced (for those projects that are supperted with buy-back). This time will be used to initiate the legal process. 2 months is the maximum term, we expect to return funds in 1-2 weeks. In this case there are no fees for investors.
Again want to remind that this is the worst case scenario and it is very unlikely.Kuetzal FAQ
First interest earned in September. Kuetzal starts very strongly with an annualized IRR of over 20%.

Kuetzal has launched an investment campaign which you can still enjoy until the end of September.
After almost 25 visits we found a house in the neighborhood where we are currently renting.
Prices are booming with the arrival of Parisians in the region. Former Parisian myself, I see how much they raise prices by buying a high price without much bargaining.
My good knowledge of the regulation allowed me to do a very good negotiation. Indeed, the house is in heritage zone. By arguing about the consequent work and regulation, I got -31000 € on the price displayed.
We are therefore in the process of acquiring a house house of 53m ² with a barn. The barn will accommodate the parking spaces needed to expand the property. We are planning a wood elevation.
The house has 3 access from the street. The idea is to integrate a rental of about 30m ² on the ground floor. The rental income will allow us to pay part of the monthly loan.
I have to finalize the plans. The next step is to get quotes to validate my forecasting.
The equity portfolio will ask for cold blood in the coming months to not panic and withdraw funds. It is an investment over several years.
The P2P lending portfolio continues to grow. I am thinking about diversifying my portfolio with crypto currencies via the P2P lending Coinloan platform .
The top 3 most successful crowdlending platforms in my portfolio are:
Real estate investment side, big surprise! We buy a main residence … with integrated rental. After all why separate the two! Encryption of the upcoming elevation project in October.
