The Mind-Blowing Economics Of Rebuildingsociety Lending

At 4thWay, we’re fascinated by the unusual nature of Rebuildingsociety’s loan book. No high-street bank dataset we’ve ever seen comes close to this kind of profile and nor do any other P2P lending companies. The loan book defies belief. Borrower grading has historically sucked. Bad debts are exceptionally high and recoveries of said debt completely… Read more

What Lending Works Has Got Wrong

Lending Works has said to us that lenders have expressed support of it during the pandemic. And we have corroborating evidence that it’s probably a minority of lenders who are truly angry. Yet there’s certainly some anger going around. While it has so far justified its 4thWay PLUS Ratings, in some areas, Lending Works has mis-stepped… Read more

Has Anyone Lost Money At Lending Works And How Variable Are Lending Results? (P.S. Please Don’t Unsubscribe)

Have any Lending Works lenders lost money? Due to the pandemic, Lending Works* put existing lenders on negative interest rates for a few months to divert some extra money to its bad-debt reserve fund.

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.

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.
