Breaking news: Kuetzal announcing a wind-down

Dear all,

Unfortunately all Kuetzal Investors have received the following e-mail today;

Dear Kuetzal investor,

Our team wants to apologize for delays in payments and replies to e-mails received.

Unfortunately we have to inform that Kuetzal is announcing wind-down, furthermore the company will only process withdrawals of the funds, the company is no longer accepting new project applications, investors registrations and deposits. Company’s reputation was harmed sufficiently for the past weeks, and Kuetzal management does not see a way to recover investor’s activity, therefore we may not return to usual working process. The mission of the company may not be reached anymore. 

Due to high number of reports, claims and negative messages SEB Bank and PAPAYA (the only two banks that Kuetzal used) initiated the AML check and has temporarily blocked Kuetzal’s bank accounts. Kuetzal is currently unable to perform any operations for undefined period. Kuetzal management is aiming to reestablish the activity of both operational bank accounts and perform buy-backs and withdrawals in shortest terms respectively.

Kuetzal will keep the investors informed.

We have not been able to make Kuetzal a successful player on crowdfunding market. We will however aim to exit the market quietly with minimum repercussion to our customers and the whole crowdfunding market. The website functions furthermore will be limited, only the user area will be kept. All the user area functions will continue working as before.

In case of technical issues with withdrawals or other question we kindly ask to use our contact mail instead of social networks or cellphone to receive the fastest service.

Kuetzal’s e-mail: info@kuetzal.com

I guess it was about time this house of cards came crashing down after the most recent news. I’m sad to see it happen, but guess it was to be expected. I’ve initiated a 3rd reminder on my initial email to them on 25 December. So we’ll see if they actually follow-up well on winding-down respectively as they announced.

This shows the risk involved, 20% returns are almost too good to be true and here is a good example.

I’ll keep you updated about the withdrawal process.

Kind regards,
Ken

 

Edit 14/01/2018 – Kuetzal responded to my e-mail. So far I was able to withdraw €1001,05 from their platform. I still have €100 in the Alborg Petrol project… so still curious to see what will happen with it. I’ll update again when the funds arrives on my bank account.

Review Alternative Investing 2019

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update Dec 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

What can fly but has no wings? The answer is… Time. Time doesn’t wait for anyone, which has already led us into a new year and a new decade. Happy New Year everyone! I enjoyed time with friends and family… or friends who became family. I hope you all had great holidays and I wish you the best in 2020. Especially financially.

For investors, time is usually our best ally. As with time money will make money, even whilst we are asleep. I had to work this week, therefore the update in this new year is a bit delayed. I have however taken all screenshots on the 31st of December. So without further ado, here are the numbers;

Fintech Alternative Investments November 2019

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update Nov 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

Good morning! Always nice to be all relaxed when coming out of bed on a Sunday and write some for the blog. Happy December everyone… already the last month of this year. That just seems too fast.

But hey! I’m not complaining, every month we have interest payments incoming and basically all I have to do is sit back to watch it happen and eventually have compound interest take over. OK sometimes I need to manually perform some actions, but that keeps it fun and is not a chore at all.

As always please allow the numbers to speak for themselves;

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update Oct 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

Good morning! Luckily I have a day off today so I have time to write the blog in a very relaxed state. I hope everyone had a nice Hallows’ Eve. October being my birth month means of course spending quality time with friends and family. Always good to know that whilst I’m spending a bit more than usual on the occasion, a decent amount is also coming in without me having to work for it thanks to crowdinvesting!

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update Sep 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

How is everyone doing? The weather is slowly changing here in Belgium and to be honest I’m not a fan of the cold upcoming months. At work it’s also pretty hectic and busy… But whenever I look at my portfolio I get happy to see that my money is working for me and gaining interest even when I sleep or not working! Got to love that feeling.

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

Envestio Review 2019

Envestio – My experience after 1 full year on this crowdlender.

Envestio was actually my most favourite platform after being only a little while into Peer To Peer Lending. Based on that, it was actually my very first platform to write a review about on the 15th of August 2018.

So exactly one year later I thought it would be a great time to update my opinion.

Is it still my favourite platform in my portfolio? No it isn’t, but that is mostly due to its own success. And to be fair, it is a close second. If they can clean up some of the issues they’ve been having recently, then I have no doubt in a nice future for them as a crowdlender.

Envestio is still the platform I have the most invested in; €3000, with a total value now of €3562,79. I’ve actually started on 02/07/2018 with only €1000 and added another €2000 on 07/11/2018. Which means at this rate I should reach a clean €1000 euro profit during spring of 2020.

I don’t think there are many other forms of investment that can achieve this in such a short amount of time. It’s even still crazy for me when I see those return numbers every month, which is averaging slightly above €50 on only (?) a €3000 investment.

P2P Investments July 2019

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update July 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

Overall I’m happy with the first month of the school holidays here in Belgium. Weather has been great (got to 40 degrees in my town last week) and interest wise it’s going well. On all the Fintech platforms I have invested at least €1000 in, I’ve gotten a return above €10. Double digit monthly returns on that amount always gets me in a good mood.

Either way, I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves:

P2P Portfolio Review June19

Peer to Peer Lending: Portfolio update June 2019

Hello everyone with an Investor’s Mindset!

What a ride it has been so far… one full year into alternative investments and I’m at €25.000 of my own money invested. A special thank you to all of you who have been following my journey for a while now.

In total this equates to €10.000 invested into crowdlending and €15.000 into dividend stocks. For now I’ll leave it at this whilst I save up some more and let compounding take over. If you have any other good investment suggestions, feel free to toss them my way in a comment below so I can start researching. These investments are to help me towards purchasing my first investment property, hopefully in 5 years’ time.

As this blog is mainly focussed around Peer-to-peer lending, please find my June portfolio update below:

Crowdestor Review 2019

Crowdestor – invest in Businesses and Real Estate.

When I took my first steps into Crowdlending, I started investing in 3 different lenders at once. Then I took a few weeks to research my next platforms to keep myself very diversified. Which is what I highly recommend to anyone who would like to start investing.

I got really excited about Crowdestor and included them in my very first blog post about my three initial platforms as part of my top 5. Almost exactly one year ago now, at the end of June 2018, I joined this Peer-to-Peer lender.

From the start, 12 months ago, up until now I haven’t had a single complaint about Crowdestor. Everything went smooth and I hope this can continue for many years to come.
