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.

Why use Assetz Capital?

We were the fastest growing secured Peer-to-Peer company in the UK in 2013 according to AltFi.

In the same year The Daily Telegraph described us as “sophisticated” and the “one to watch”.

In 2014 we experienced a 300% growth in lending and our lenders have earned in accrued interest since we started. **

Despite such accolades it is our mission to ensure both lenders and borrowers can operate within a fair and regulated environment.

What makes this the right time to consider Peer-to-Peer Lending?

In March 2014 the Chancellor George Osborne announced in his budget that there would be a relaxation in the rules around pensions thus giving people the chance to manage their own finances more, consider investment solutions that are not based on buying an annuity and to be able to look at opportunities like Peer-to-Peer Lending.

Investing in Peer-to-Peer using your SIPP allows you to choose the businesses you want to lend to, the amount of money you want to lend and the target interest rate you would like to achieve.

Should I lend through my SIPP or SSAS?

Most UK pensions are managed by institutional fund managers who decide where your pension savings are invested. More and more people are now taking control of their retirement savings and setting up either a SIPP or a SSAS (Self-Invested Personal Pension or a Small Self-Administered Scheme).

This has given the pension holder some choice as to where their fund is invested. A SIPP or SSAS allows you, the pension holder, to make your own investment decisions alongside the scheme trustees. A Peer-to-Peer SIPP or SSAS now offers you a new option for investment.

What is the process to invest?

  • Whilst SIPPclub will not provide you with advice, it should be able to point you towards a SIPP operator who may be able to meet your needs.
  • If you need assistance, SIPPclub can help you create a brand new SIPP into which you can make contributions and organise the transfer of your existing pensions where it’s appropriate..
  • Once your SIPP has been created, SIPPclub will help you open an account on our platform and instruct you on how to operate it in accordance with the SIPP rules.
