group buying is when a group of individuals come together to buy a single financial product (loan or investment or insurance). We aggregate consumer demand for the product and then take the combined pool to financial institutions, who then bid for our business. once the bids are placed by the financial institutions, we negotiate the terms to determine the best offer. once this process is completed, we present the offer to users and they can choose to accept or decline the offer.

why will financial institutions (suppliers) be interested in your proposition?

financial institutions are in the business of making and selling financial products. fortune club helps these financial institutions by providing them aggregated demand for a single product on a consistent basis, so that they can save on their marketing and product costs. this makes it a win-win proposition for both parties.

we only originate the loans for our lending partners. The actual loan is provided by the financial institution that makes the best offer for each loan product. We do both new loans and refinanced loans.

why should I get a loan from you and not directly from a bank/nbfc?

firstly, we encourage our users to go to their respective banks and explore the rates and terms being offered for the loan product they need. Then join a group on fortune club and see what rates and terms we can offer for the same product. only when you are satisfied that the product is better (we are confident in it being that) should you choose to use our services.

fortune club uses the power of group buying to aggregate demand for loans. we negotiate on your behalf for the best rates and terms on loans with banks and nbfcs. you can further save money by redeeming your rewards. we strive to make the process as smooth as possible with lesser paperwork, lesser processing time, lower bank fees and more…

fortune club negotiates the charges and fees that the bank charges for each loan. we work with our lending partners to reduce the paperwork, processing times, disbursals, foreclosures etc. users can also redeem their rewards to make their loans cheaper. we save both your money and time!!

do I have to pay to be a part of the loan pool?

yes, you have to pay a token amount to confirm your interest in being part of a group. This amount will be refunded to you once the deal has been closed and after you accept the offer. if you decide to not accept the offer, the token amount is credited to your wallet. we do this to ensure that only genuine users who are interested in the product are part of the group.

what is fractional ownership?

several investors come together and pool in money to make a combined investment. the incomes or returns generated from this investment is distributed amongst this group of investors. by doing this investor earns returns for his contribution into the pool and thus has fractional ownership of the underlying asset.

for example, 1000 investors invest Rs 5000 to buy a property worth Rs 50,00,000. each investor will be entitled to receive 1/1000th of the income or returns generated by the property. making them 0.1% owner of the property; effectively giving them the fractional ownership of the asset.

what kind of products can I invest in?

we are building a curated investment marketplace, where investors can build a diversified portfolio across equity and debt securities. our-in house team screens the entire universe of 3rd party investment opportunities available to investors and presents them on the platform once they satisfy our internal criteria. some of the opportunities include but not limited to real-estate, p2p, leasing, startups, stock portfolios, high yield assets, US stocks, and more.
