What are the risks of financing on Re fundia?

All investments carry varying degrees of risk. The main risk associated with the safe investment is that the company may simply go bankrupt with the consequence that investors lose their investment. Illiquidity is another consideration because if there is a lack of demand, one has to wait for the debt security to mature. 

Is it possible to sell debt securities to recover liquidity?

Re fundia facilitates a secondary market where financiers can buy and sell debt securities over the counter online

Does the secondary market reduce investment risk?

The possibility for investors to sell their debt securities before maturity frees them from a liquidity constraint and thereby reduces their risks.
The secondary market offers investors the possibility to sell their debt securities (especially bonds and minibonds) over the counter, however, the possibility of finding a buyer depends on demand. Investors should not assume that an early exit will be possible because the secondary market exists
