Close risk warning

As with most forms of investment, peer-to-peer lending carries a degree of risk to your capital; in this case, if the borrower is unable to repay their loan. 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. Investment Account target interest rates should be considered along with the relevant Investment Account expected defaults & losses information. Past performance does not guarantee future performance. We recommend that prospective lenders read the Key Investor Information pages before investing.

Hayfield Engineering Ltd has been in business since 1983 and is situated in the heart of the UK’s manufacturing industry in the Midlands. The niche business feeds the larger global engineering firms around the region, supplying mainly to the aerospace and petrochemical industries.
