At rebuildingsociety.com, you control your own lending and return! You choose the businesses you want to support, and we do the rest.
Lending to businesses is an accessible, efficient and productive way of investing money. You’ll be directly supporting the UK economy, helping SMEs grow and earning yourself a better return on your hard earned money.
You can lend using a normal lending account or make use of our Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) account. Lend via the Primary Marketplace to new loans, or visit the Secondary Marketplace, where loans that have already been funded by rebuildingsociety.com lenders are featured. When you buy loan parts (microloans) from other users via the Secondary Marketplace, you employ your capital immediately. You can lend as little as £10 to any business.
Lending to business is not without risk; please consider these before investing. Businesses may at times struggle to make repayments and may ultimately default on the loan. If this happens, your capital and unpaid interest is at risk.

Making P2P Lending Easier For The Everyday Investor
"I continue to invest over 95% of available funds on this one platform (despite its small size) because it is the only P2P I have discovered where the gross returns are sufficient to outweigh defaults. The site is not perfect (due largely to resource constraints), but it is undoubtedly the best in my five years+"
