IN SHORT

Today I looked for Viventor 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 Viventor, which turned out to be 3.8 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 “Viventor review”, “Viventor 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 six reviews and scores from three portals with people’s opinions. Here are the details.

Opinions from portals

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

  • 22 opinions, score: 3.3

 2. Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/Viventor.Platform/reviews/)

  • 11 opinions, score: 4.6

 3. finanzfluss (https://www.finanzfluss.de/anbieter/viventor/erfahrungen/)

  • 3 opinions, score: 4.4

 

Weighted average (accounting for the number of people who voted in each poll): (3.3 * 22 + 4.6 * 11 + 4.4 * 3) / (22 + 11 + 3) = 3.79

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

Viventor Score = 3.80

Based on my own experience, Viventor is sending out a couple of emails monthly. As expected, recently they are mostly aimed to provide updates on loan originators.
