How it works

When you invest with Lending Works, you lend your money directly to creditworthy borrowers. It’s called peer-to-peer lending.


Personal loans to real people

You'll invest only in personal loans to creditworthy individuals who pass our rigorous approval process.

Invest for 3 to 5 years

Earn 4.5% p.a. on 3-year loans, or 6.0% p.a. on 5-year loans. Take loan repayments as income, or reinvest automatically for maximum returns.

Start from just £100

On average, our individual members invest £3,500 when they join, but you can start from just £100. You’ll always get our best 3- or 5-year interest rate.

How we reduce risks

Peer-to-peer lending is an investment. That means your capital is at risk and returns aren’t guaranteed. And remember, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) doesn’t cover poor investment performance, just like with bonds or shares.

That said, we reduce the risk wherever possible. Here’s how.


Market-leading protection

The Lending Works Shield combines a reserve fund that covers every consumer-funded loan, with unique insurance against the primary causes of borrower default.

It's not a guarantee against loss, but we believe it's the strongest protection of any unsecured peer-to-peer lending platform. Learn more

Shield

Automatically diversified

Your investment is automatically split across many loans. It's inherently diverse, and much less volatile than stocks and shares.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results, and returns aren’t guaranteed.


Accessing your money

Accessing your money is simple. You can draw a regular income, or withdraw your money early, provided that other investors can be found to take over your loans.


Withdraw early

For a 0.6% fee, you can withdraw your money early, provided other investors are available to take on your loans.
