← Back | Funding Circle
Funding Circle was the 1st business to allow peer-2-peer lending for companies in the UK and now operates in the Netherlands, Germany, US & UK. Funding Circle has enabled over £5 billion in loans to small businesses as at June 2018.
Funding Circle was created in 2010 by Andrew Mullinger, Samir Desai and James Meekings
The normal RoI is about 8% which is better than some Hedge Funds. The way they handle defaults is a lot better than many banks. When a lender defaults, Funding Circle will reduce the payments allowing the company to recover. Often the business is able to return nearly all of the capital.
Funding Circle has been trading since 2010 and is a lending marketplace that enables investors to lend money directly to SMEs.
Funding Circle is brilliant for passive income streams
