Mintos launches high-yield Fractional Bonds for retail investors
By Gloria Methri
Mintos, the European platform loan investment platform, has announced the launch of high-yield Fractional Bonds. This offering opens the world of fixed-income securities to retail investors in Europe, making it accessible and easy for anyone to diversify their portfolio with bonds.
Historically bonds, and especially high-yield bonds, have predominantly been within reach of institutional investors or individuals wielding substantial capital, making them less accessible to retail investors. Mintos now enables individuals to invest in high-yield bonds with as little as €50 and zero commissions, transforming the way people approach investing in debt instruments.
Initially, Mintos will offer investments in high-yield corporate bonds issued by the lending companies present on its platform. Meanwhile, the company is already working on expanding its offering to encompass bonds of firms in various industries, such as agriculture, manufacturing, and more.
To access high-yield bonds on Mintos, investors invest in Fractional Bonds, asset-backed securities issued by Mintos special purpose entity that fully reflect the economic gains and capital repayments tied to specific underlying bonds.
Therefore, through Fractional Bonds, investors enjoy regular, fixed returns from the underlying bond. Each Fractional Bond is associated with a unique International Securities Identification Number (ISIN), ensuring transparency and traceability.
“Mintos is committed to empowering individuals to take control of their financial futures by providing access to a diverse range of investment opportunities. The launch of high-yield Fractional Bonds is a significant step towards achieving this goal, ensuring that all investors, regardless of their financial means, can benefit from the stability of returns and low volatility that bonds offer,” said Martins Sulte, CEO and Co-Founder of Mintos.
