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.

Northern Vaporisers

Skipton, Yorkshire

When Northern Vaporisers wanted to expand their premises and take on more staff, they were unable to obtain a loan big enough for their needs from the banks.

Intro

The funds they received were used to move the business into a 7,000 square foot premises and to recruit an additional three staff members.

This allowed Northern Vaporisers to produce lighter, better value aluminium Vaporisers in-house, reducing the cost of production whilst maintaining quality, despite the increasing demand are now experiencing.

Impact

Their new aluminium model has replaced the previous heavier brass unit, leading to 85% of their vaporisers now being sold to foreign markets including several major customers in the US such as Vetamac, Jorgensen Vets and Hartland Medical.

To optimise this international success they had to expand their business quickly and found that Assetz Capital and our investors were able to offer the assistance they needed when more traditional finance routes were unavailable.
