Assetz’ investors earn £25m to date
Assetz Capital has announced that its lenders collectively have earned gross returns of more than £25m on their investments in just over four years – an average of 8% gross interest across all Assetz Capital loans since the start of the platform, before allowances for tax or any losses not covered by a provision fund.
There are 20,000 registered and active investors, currently using the Assetz Capital platform. The returns since the launch of the platform were generated through over £309m of their investment, lent to credit-worthy businesses from a range of industries looking to raise funds, including SME, bridging and development sectors.
Stuart Law, CEO of Assetz Capital, said:
“Over the years, we’ve been able to attract both retail and institutional investors with loans which have appealed to different types of investors and their risk appetites.
“We not only see the £25m as a mark of our own achievement but also as an industry milestone. Our vision is to democratise lending opportunities by offering private investors an alternative to more traditional investment options.”
As with most forms of investment, peer-to-peer lending carries a degree of risk to your capital; in this case, if borrowers were unable to repay their loans. At Assetz Capital, we seek to reduce this risk to our investors by taking asset security on every loan, with the added benefit of a discretionary Provision Fund for some of our investment accounts.
