Loan Originators had submitted the offers to DoFinance for evaluation. As Loan Originators informed previously, as well as it has been presented in blog posts, during the last few months, costs of collection have exceeded the collection inflow itself, therefore according to professional judgment of the Loan Originators and DoFinance, sale of portfolios was economically the best choice for investors.

What does it mean to sell a portfolio
A loan portfolio sale is a transfer of multiple loan assets in one transaction. As DoFinance informed previously, sale of portfolios is economically the best choice for investors. Therefore, Do Finance, acting in the interests of Investors and in accordance with the current Terms of the Agreement on the Use of the DoFinance website, accepted the sale of portfolios by Loan Originators. With the sale of Poland and Indonesia portfolios all sold investments are closed. So, the investment object as such ceases to exist, respectively, all and any payments for such investments have been accomplished until the final transfer of funds as described above.
What does it mean for investors
Despite the portfolios sale being good news, there is one notable detail about it – since DoFinance has also gotten very close to license acquisition, thus, as imposed by the local regulator, in order to provide the aforementioned funds to the current investors’ accounts, a certain AML (Anti Money Laundering) procedure must be carried out. This is a standard practice in all EU and DoFinance urges its investors to cooperate so that the subsequent funds transfer becomes possible and everyone could get their funds without hindrance. Most of the investors have already accomplished this process, but some still remain.
Please read the stages of the refund for withdrawal:
- Only the amount that will be credited after the sale of portfolios will be available for withdrawal and transfer to Investors private bank accounts, because these are funds that have been made available to Dofinance.
- With the amount that is displayed as available on the Do Finance account balance, Dofinance is doing everything that is practically reasonable to collect these funds from Loan Originators. One has to note that Loan Originators have faced far greater direct collection costs in the recent months than incoming funds from collections. As much as will be possible to reasonably collect will be made available for for withdrawal in next 1 –2 months.
Mr.Investor has an available balance of 50 Euros on the balance of DoFinance account.
After the sale of portfolios, 60 Euros were credited to his balance.
