Up to 10% or £500 cashback is back with the Lending Works IFISA; RateSetter, Growth Street and LendingCrowd. Read more.

 

New Lending Works* IFISA customers can earn between £50 and £500 cashback, if you transfer cash ISA, share ISA or IFISA cash into the Lending Works IFISA.

This is a very limited time exclusive offer. Even we don't know how long we can exclusively offer it to you for, but the estimate is this will last for just one to two weeks. Starting yesterday!

That said, please read all the details below before jumping in and do your own research as usual. Rule number one of 4thWay's 10 Lending Principles is still: ‘If there's any doubt about lending at all, the answer's “No”.'

The cashback can work out at up to 1% interest, all paid up front by the 13th April, so that you can re-lend it if you want.

Before I give you more details about the cashback, and how to claim it…

How good is Lending Works?

Cashback means nothing if your money is unsafe.

Lending Works still has what I consider to be very attractive interest rates for the low risks involved at this personal loans P2P provider, which focuses on prime borrowers with low bad debts, has a decent-sized reserve fund and an insurance policy to cover borrowers' payments if they lose their jobs, which could come handy during a recession.

Lending Works is one of the very few peer-to-peer lending sites that is still earning 5/5 4thWay PLUS Ratings on all its lending accounts. This shows how strongly Lending Works lenders are forecast to do even in a very severe recession.

Lending Works has been consistently professional in all aspects of its business. Please see what one of 4thWay's experts wrote in this review of Lending Works.

Some details about the cashback deal

So, I'll try to explain the deal as clearly as possible.

It starts with clicking on a link and ends with you sending Lending Works an email. Please read and memorise the following instructions carefully. This message will self-destruct.

Firstly, you need to click through this link* to open a Lending Works ISA account (or you can click on any other link going to Lending Works from the 4thWay site).

If you have already opened a Lending Works IFISA, I'm afraid the deal is not available to you. (Although I do wonder whether Lending Works' customer services would be kind enough to let you take part anyway, if you ask them nicely.)

Nothing in the small print says that you can't benefit from the cashback deal if you already have an ordinary (non-IFISA) peer-to-peer lending account with Lending Works though.

The amount of commission you're paid depends on how much you transfer in from other ISAs.

You must offer to lend all of what you transfer in before the 31st March 2018.

You can transfer the money in from several places, on different days. It doesn't have to be in one go. Just make sure you offer to lend it all by the 31st March.

If you also pay in new contributions – meaning money that you're not transferring from other ISAs, that doesn't count for this cashback deal.

Here's the amount of commission you could earn

Total amount you transfer in Cashback you can claim after you offer to lend all the money transferred in
£5,000 to £9,999 £50
£10,000 to £24,999 £100
£25,000 to £49,999 £200
£50,000+ £500

As always with tiered commission, the closer your lending amount is to the lower number in the tier (so £5,000, £10,000, £25,000 or £50,000) the better the deal works out for you. Because you earn more cashback for less.

That said, I personally think Lending Works is a good place for P2P lenders like you and me to put a good chunk of our money. Just make sure you still spread your money across other peer-to-peer lending sites too.

Transfer in the right way!

It's vital you use the appropriate forms to transfer in. It's a transfer from your other ISAs, not a withdrawal.

If you withdraw your money from other ISAs, rather than transfer it using the correct procedure, you lose your ISA limits from previous years and can only pay it into the Lending Works IFISA as new contributions, which are limited to £20,000 per tax year.

You've got to do this too!

When you've offered your transferred money to lend, you need to email your name and account details to: promo@lendingworks.co.uk.

Just don't email Lending Works your account password!

Here's that link* again.

The 4thWay® PLUS Ratings are calculations that were developed by professional risk modellers (someone who models risks for the banks), experienced investors and a debt specialist from one of the major consultancy firms. They measure the risks and rewards of losing money in scenarios up to a serious recession and a major property crash, and they assume you spread your money across lots of loans and rated P2P lending accounts or IFISAs. The rating is calculated using objective criteria that can be measured and improved on over time, although no rating system is perfect. Read more about the 4thWay® PLUS Ratings.

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.
