Sure & Steady Growth Since Launch

At easyMoney we have grown our loan portfolio in a steady and controlled manner in order to avoid the underwriting issues that have affected some high profile peer-to-peer lenders.

Please remember that past performance does not guarantee future results.

Loan Types

We focus on bridge and development loans to property professionals who meet our strict lending criteria.

Breakdown of loans by type

To help protect your money, every loan on the easyMoney platform is secured with a legal charge on UK property.

This means that if a borrower is unable to meet their obligations we will try to sell the property but please be aware that our ability to recover funds could be affected by a downturn in the property market.

Defaults & Arrears

Our conservative approach to lending helps reduce the likelihood of loss through default.

We are proud to say that the actual default rate to date is currently 0.00%.

Please remember, property is subject to market conditions and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

Actual arrears are calculated as a % of all outstanding balances from loans made in the calendar year of the loan.

Estimated defaults are based on the historical performance of borrowers who have fallen more than 180 days in arrears as a percentage of the total loan book on a time-weighted basis.

Actual defaults resulting in a loss are calculated as a percentage of the total lent by the platform in the calendar year of the loan.

Loan grades We have a proprietary model to assess all our lending opportunities and help us mitigate risk. Each loan is assigned a risk score A (low risk) through to J (more risk). As conservative lenders, we generally only lend against loans that score A through to C. You can see which Loan Grades you are invested in the My Portfolio section of your account.

  • The table above relates to the period from 1 January – 31 December 2019.
  • Where there is a change in the interest rates or qualification criteria for a Product, lenders are automatically moved to the Product that meets their profile. Where such a change occurs, we treat this as a different Product for the purposes of showing loan performance data.
  • The “Period Available” refers to the period when it was possible for lenders to enter into new loans at the quoted Target Rate. Loans entered into during that Period would continue to be held within the Product after the Product had ceased until they were redeemed by the borrower or sold by the lender.
  • The “Actual Rate” is the weighted average return received by lenders under the relevant Product. This takes into account the effect of cash drag (where money is held in cash pending investment into a loan); default (where the borrower fails to make repayment); and compounding (where interest earned is re-invested to earn additional interest). Payments made by easyMoney to cover borrower interest are not included within the Actual Rate unless the borrower subsequently made good. Only includes investments which satisfy the product criteria and were invested for at least 90 days.
  • The “Target Rate” is the rate that easyMoney advertised for the Product during the Period available. This represented the contractual rate that investors in a product would be entitled to from borrowers under all loans they entered into. The contractual rate does not take into account the effect of cash drag, default or compounding, which are reflected in the actual rate.
  • The returns do not show the effect of tax. Individual lenders holding a product outside of an Innovative Finance ISA will have to pay income tax at their marginal rate, which is dependent on individual circumstances.
  • Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

Before you invest

Remember that property is subject to market conditions and therefore your capital is at risk. Peer-to-Peer Investments are not cash savings accounts so they are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

We recommend you read more about Understanding the risks and how we manage risk before signing up and taking the appropriateness test to ensure this type of investment is right for you.
