PeerStreet distributes payments every Tuesday, so investors can expect to receive their pro-rata distributions on investments for which they have collected funds between those dates.
How PeerStreet makes money
Their servicing fee is a “spread” between the interest rate payable on a loan and the interest rate you receive as an investor. With this structure, PeerStreet has aligned interests with their investors as they will only get paid when their investors get paid. Generally, this fee should be in the range of 0.25%-1.00% and it will always be disclosed. PeerStreet’s fee structure keeps their investors’ interest at the top of mind. They’ve aligned themselves in such a way that they only get paid when their investors get paid. Loan performance is equally as important to them as it is to users of their platform.
Is it safe?
PeerStreet implements a number of controls to ensure their website is as secure as possible for their stakeholders. All of your interactions with the website take place over a secure and encrypted connection that uses SSL/TLS, the industry-standard security technology used by all banks and other financial firms. Personal data is stored using the latest in public key encryption technology in their data center powered by Amazon Web Services. In addition, their hosting services provider undergoes regular penetration testing and vulnerability assessments to validate the integrity of the platform and maintain the privacy of your data.
PeerStreet also holds loans in a bankruptcy-remote entity that is separate from their primary corporate entity. In the event PeerStreet no longer remains in business, a third-party “special member” will step in to manage loan investments and ensure that investors continue to receive interest and principal payments.
