Investing through us means we put in all the hard work so you can have less to worry about

Forget worrying about the creditworthiness of our borrowers because we make sure to only approve those who have passed our rigorous assessments performed by our Credit Committee.

Diversification of investments

Another thing you don’t have to worry about is deciding who to invest in since we will invest your funds on your behalf. Our experience proves that we are highly knowledgeable in choosing the best investments for you- so you can put your trust in us. We spread your funds across different loans (personal loans, business loans and home loans), allowing diversification, giving you a more secure investment.

Our secured loans

All our loans are asset secured primarily against UK residential property, providing a safety blanket for our lenders in case a loan default. If a loan does default, we can sell the asset in order to recover outstanding funds. However, although this does offer some protection, there is unfortunately always the possibility of still making a loss.

Peer-to-peer lending assistance you can rely on

Our objective is for you to have a smooth experience with us.

That’s why we have a team that is readily available to guide you along the way and offer you support wherever you might need it.

With us, you get higher returns

Our number one priority when it comes to our investors is to provide you with higher returns than what banks offer you. We connect you directly to borrowers (small businesses and individuals), cutting out any third party that comes with frustrating additional fees. As a result, you end up saving more of your money, leaving you with more to put back into your investment. In addition, we contribute our own funds into every online loan that we make, thereby affording our investors more confidence.

Funding tailored to the borrower’s needs

Every application is assessed on its own merits with the aim to tailor-make a price suitable for the borrower and the project. We want your project to become a success, therefore we’ll advise you to help you minimise your risk while maximising your project’s profitability.

Monitoring loans; standard and enhanced monitoring

We closely monitor all loans to evaluate how well they perform. Loan performance is judged by the loan security value in relation to the loan itself. In other words, we look at the value of the loan security and analyse whether or not it will be sufficient enough to cover the loan-principle as well as the interest.

Given the highly complex property development lending environment, we make use of standard and enhanced monitoring techniques to help us keep track of every quick loan. These techniques are used in relation to the risks and performance of each loan.
