Crowdfunding craze: Gold rush all over again?

Higher returns are a big draw for small-time investors, but there’s little recourse if things go wrong

It was a simple concept that first drew financial analyst James Yeo to crowdfunding – the chance to earn bumper returns when decent yields from other investments were pretty hard to come by.

Mr Yeo (not his real name) made his first investment on a peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform late last year, putting up a $1,000 loan to a seafood wholesaler that was raising funds to buy and farm hairy crabs. The lure? A handsome annual return of 23 per cent.

Mr Yeo, who has received repayments for nine of the 12-month loan tenure, tells The Sunday Times: “It’s good that in crowdfunding, I have control over my risk through my choice of loans. It’s as though I’m playing the role of a bank in choosing which companies I want to lend to.

Here is why this article is important: Many of you are interested in investing in crowdfunding loans. This is a great article about the things you should consider first.

A 25-piece collection of surprisingly intriguing photographs of slow roasted bones and various chunks of dog meat. A quirky coffee table book filled with fun displays of gut-wrenching dog treats in an elevated food photography style. It’s a somewhat dark new publication which formed spontaneously due to a lack of food or other things for humans to photograph. Light humor involving the dog meat industry and a few vegan options like “Dental Chew Stick” for humans and canines who like to keep it clean.

Camille Lesar has great ideas on how to use the book:

 

Ways to use this book:

A way to lead into a conversation about the meat industry’s impact on global warming

A bedtime story for your dog
