Anon, a 4thWay® subscriber

“I have been reading 4thway for years because it is the best resource for P2P investors in the UK.

I am a big P2P investor so look out for the new articles heralded every month in their newsletter.

If I had listened to one of their warnings it would have saved me a considerable sum. Everything 4thway reports is very useful.

I would like to thank Neil Faulkner & his team for all the work they put into helping UK P2P investors.

I would also like to thank Neil personally for stopping work to carefully answer a P2P question from me in full detail. He didn't have to do that. There was no benefit for him. But it was very helpful indeed for me as I was stuck on something. That is the mark of a good person.

Keep up the great work! I am sure there are many others like me that are quietly very grateful.”

Mark Walters, a 4thWay® subscriber (who also posted a similar Google Review)
