So, it means that Crowd with Us did not have sufficient current assets to finance its short term obligations. The debt to equity ratio is higher than 5, meaning the company is heavily funded by debt. Furthermore, the return on assets is low, so there is room for improvement. Overall, the financial health of Crowd with Us signals for necessity of changes.
Platform’s Score and Uniqueness
The platform does not offer a secondary market feature, while autoinvest is available. There is no buyback guarantee, however, there is collateral backing the loan with the LTV being above market average. The investment can be diversified using different projects, and the promised return is around 18% depending on projects, which is above average market return. The high return is not justified on the platform's website. The platform representatives and the company itself can be found in the registered address. There is no sign of conflict of interest between the investment projects and platform’s owners. The platform does not provide historical loan books, which could be useful in building trust and attracting more investors.
