Mintos will introduce a new rating system so that investors can better assess the risk level of originators in its peer-to-peer lending market.

The pan-European company will give each originator who finances loans through its platform a rating ranging from 10 for low risk to one for high.

Mintos said it would increase lender and lending transparency and replace its ratings which provided a score based on the financial and operational stability of its originators.

The risk score will be calculated based on the quality and performance of an issuer’s loan portfolio, how it collects bad debt, how it handles buybacks and its cooperation with Mintos.

An updated version will follow later in November to appear in the filter options when selecting, investing, or viewing loans.

“Since the launch, we have gained a lot of practical experience with this methodology and valuable feedback from our investors.
