  1. Well you can be as conservative as you want on the P2P portals but there is always the risk of portal itself. Envestio is a good example.. last i heard the Envestio website/company & peoples money is just gone – poof.

    1. Hi Juri, that is definitely true and although I pulled out in time of Envestio I accept the risk that certain platforms go bankrupt/are scams.
