Video: What We Learned From RateSetter’s CEO

What we learned about RateSetter’s experiments Rhydian Lewis, RateSetter’s* CEO, got the chance to present his business recently. I’ve set the above video to start from the point where I think it might be particularly interesting to individual lenders as regards to RateSetter’s own business, especially in the light of its recent misfortunes, which RateSetter… Read more

Money-Saving Tips Websites Are A Risk To Your P2P Wealth

This week I received a newsletter from a popular money-saving tips website that said: “Peer-to-peer lending isn’t the only option for savers keen to earn more – there’s also investing to consider.” It was just yet another time that I’ve heard P2P being described as savings for savers when it is actually a form of… Read more

What’s Happened Recently That You Need To Know

We’re not a P2P “industry news” site, but we do like to report news if it directly helps individual lenders to make better lending decisions, which is our entire raison d’être. A lot of news like this has occurred over the past six weeks or so, so here’s a round-up: Risks at Zopa have risen… Read more

Candid Opinion & Peer-to-Peer Lending Tips

Which Is The Best Lending Works Account?

Both of Lending Works’ lending accounts receive the top rating and a highly favourable review from our experts. But I’ll tell you now that there’s not an ocean’s difference between them. Still, if you’re a keen lender, some small differences in repayment timing, interest rates and the risks might interest you enough to read on…. Read more

Landbay Rates Rise, Risks Remain Low

When high-quality peer-to-peer lending websites first start up, they often pay interest rates to lenders that are too generous compared to the risks involved. The risks can be extremely low because, at that stage, the peer-to-peer lending website is so small that it can be fantastically picky about which borrowers to accept. (Assuming it is… Read more

Why P2P Lending Is Far Better Than Equity Crowdfunding

What is the one huge difference between equity crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending? The risks of P2P lending are generally lower than the stock market. Whereas equity crowdfunding – buying shares in startups through websites – is among the riskiest investments this side of a scam, making it highly inappropriate for all but the most expert investors.

Why are Wellesley’s interest rates different?

Wellesley’s P2P lending rates appear higher on its own website than on 4thWay®.

This is because we calculate Wellesley’s interest rates the same way most other P2P lending websites do. We do this so that you can compare the rates more easily and so that they show a more accurate picture of what you’ll earn.

Important information before you visit Wellesley & Co.

Wellesley & Co. is primarily a P2P lending website.

But, when you visit the Wellesley website, you’ll see that it also offers “bonds”. Unlike its P2P lending service, its bonds don’t allow you to lend directly to 100+ borrowers.

Instead, you lend to Wellesley and it lends to other borrowers.

We have not risk-rated either of those bonds, but we expect that their structure makes them more risky, particularly because you’re lending to just one borrower.

Important information before you visit Wellesley & Co.

Wellesley & Co. is primarily a P2P lending website.

But, when you visit the Wellesley website, you’ll see that it also offers two “bonds”, one of which is available as an ISA.

Unlike its P2P lending service, neither of these bonds allows you to lend directly to 100+ borrowers.

Instead, you lend to Wellesley and it lends to other borrowers.

We have not risk-rated either of those bonds, but we expect that their structure makes them more risky, particularly because you’re lending to just one borrower.
