P2P is one of the fastest growing and exciting investment classes, last year growing by 50% in the UK alone, with £1.4 billion invested in P2P platforms¹. Offering attractive returns that average between 5-10%, it’s easy to see why this is becoming an increasingly popular option in investment portfolios.
Valued at 3.5 billion dollars in 2013, the global P2P lending market is forecast to value 1 trillion US dollars by 20252.
Of course as with any financial investment, particularly those offering higher returns, it is important that you have a clear understanding of exactly how peer-to-peer lending works, what investing through P2P entails and how you go about choosing the right platform for your money.
Getting to grips with P2P lending
P2P lending is still a relatively new concept when you compare it to other financial investments. Therefore getting to grips with what P2P lending is all about can present a challenge since the information and advice available is often conflicting.
So, to combat this and to help guide you through all the jargon, common misconceptions and answer any questions you may have such as, “Is peer-to-peer investing safe”, “How can I ensure a good return on my investment”, “Which P2P lending platform is right for me”, we’ve put together our indispensable, step-by-step guide to peer-to-peer lending.
We explain what P2P lending is - as well as what it isn’t, examine how P2P lending works in practice, identify potential risks - helping to avoid any pitfalls and maximise your returns and enable you to understand the different types of P2P platforms and identify the best peer-to-peer lending sites on the market.
