As with all investing if you are not experienced and you require advice on investing it is important that advice is only sought from one registered with the Financial Conduct Authority
In todays financial markets obtaining adecent return on your investments is difficult.Many are now looking at Peer to Peer in order to get that return.
Within Peer to Peer there is different structures that some allow you to dissect your investment and 'Loan' it to different types of customers in different ammounts so you spread your risk accordingly.
Some sites are now offering loans to businesses,although some are waiting for a tract of money to come from a government scheme totalling £55 million to forward onto businesses by loans.
From April 2014 the F.C.A. are going to bring in controls for peer to peer .It is expected that they will include a 14 day cooling off period for loans,clearer explanation of specific agreements and better credit checks.These are welcomed by all those involved in the peer to peer and crowdfunding business.
