Squirrel Money Investor Reviews

About this Company

Squirrel is not a tech start-up. We’ve been in the business of helping Kiwis borrow money since 2008.

 

Squirrel was born during the Global Financial Crisis so we’ve got a natural cynicism about the economy and being prudent. We’ve worked hard for our clients and built a strong and trusted brand in the Auckland housing market, arranging over $2 billion in mortgages. And along the way we’ve also won a heap of awards.

Our business is all about helping Kiwis make better financial decisions.

Peer-to-peer – or as we like to call it, person-to-person lending, was an obvious next step for us. It gives everyday investors better returns at the same time as saving borrowers their hard-earned money. By putting Reserve Funds in place and building a world class IT platform (the Squirrel P2P Marketplace) we also take looking after our investors’ money seriously.

Squirrel Investing is about us challenging lending traditions to create more value for our clients. It’s not revolutionary or scary, it’s just personal lending, done better. We believe in total transparency and you’ll find we’re honest and open about how we work, where our funding comes from and what’s happening with your money.

I am new to Squirrel but I have found the website easy to navigate and the information that I was looking to help me to decide whether to invest or not was covered. I emailed just once to check I was doing things correctly and had a very prompt and friendly response. So far, I am delighted to have taken the step to invest with Squirrel and plan on investing with them further.

Easy app access, a bit annoying that it locks you out if you use another application at the same time. Invested an initial sum to see how it works and pleasantly pleased it went with ease, looking forward to investing more as time goes on.

It's OK, but in my experience most of the investments are repaid early, quite often well before the initial end of term date which can mean that income steam isn't constant and lacks the 'set and forget' aspect of other P2P platforms as a result.

Tried to open a/c - provided all the correct documents. When I tried to complete Step One I couldnt. No explanation what was wrong. Tried Helpdesk - no reply, no help. Very poor service. I cancelled my account, but still can login to my account even after I was sent a confirmation the account was closed. Am deeply concerned they have all my personal details. No response from Squirrel about my concerns and am contacting the FMA about the way they seem to be data mining.

why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
