Launches 1% Introducer Fee Incentive for Investment Advisers

Investment advisers can now earn a one per cent introducer fee when they refer clients who lend a minimum of £2k to businesses listed on, the peer-to-business lending platform.

Peer-to-peer and peer-to-business lending have emerged as growth markets as cash-rich individuals and advisers have recognised the value of lending to people and companies with the means to repay loans, as ISAs, pension funds and savings account returns have dwindled in the recession.

To date around £360m has been lent through the market* where lenders spread their risk by lending small amounts to many businesses that meet their risk appetite.

Managing director Daniel Rajkumar explains: “Lending to businesses is a market gathering momentum as it’s a short to medium term investment that adds diversity to an investment portfolio with high returns.

“Lenders on are lending money at rates in excess of ten per cent, which is a rate businesses are prepared to pay as they can’t access the funds through banks, despite being profitable and mature.

“If advisers have clients sitting on cash in low interest savings accounts, they should consider lending to businesses through as a way of better deploying that capital and this incentive shows we’re prepared to pay for their trusted advice as we build the market.”

  • only lists limited businesses with two years of filed accounts and each business must be profitable.
  • reserves the right to withdraw this offer at any time.
