IN SHORT

Today I looked for Iuvo Group reviews published or updated withing the last six months. I was only interested in those of them that gave a final score (it was always a system of five stars, with five meaning highest score). I also looked for opinions at portals, such as Trustpilot. With that I calculated an overall score for Iuvo Group, which turned out to be 4.32 out of 5.0. Below, I’m showing details for that simple calculation, some basic data about this P2P lending platform as well as any other information I believe you should know before deciding to invest.

Methodology and Results

I was looking for sources of data by googling “Iuvo review”, “Iuvo Erfahrungen” etc. I did the search in English, German, Spanish and Italian. From a list of found reviews I only kept those published or updated in the last six months and providing an overall score for the platform. In this way I got five reviews and scores from two portals with people’s opinions. Here are the details.

Based on those reviews, mean overall score is 4.45

 

Opinions from portals

 1.  Trustpilot (https://www.trustpilot.com/review/iuvo.com)  

  • 324 opinions, score: 4.2

 2.  financer.com (https://financer.com/es/prestamista/iuvo/)

  • 1 opinion, score: 1.0

 

Weighted average (accounting for the number of people who voted in each poll): (4.2 * 324 + 1.0 * 1) / (324 + 1) = 4.19

The final Iuvo Score is a mean value of “mean overall score” from reviews and “weighted average” from portals:

 
Iuvo Score = 4.32

Social  media

Iuvo has active accounts at social media with a couple of posts per month:

 

Contact with customers

Based on my own experience, Iuvo is sending out 5-10 emails monthly. As expected, recently they are mostly aimed to provide updates on loan originators. What I like about Iuvo team is that they tend to ask customers for feedback and they call the investors occasionally (which I never experienced with the other platforms).
