“We are delighted with the success of our second C share issue, which clearly demonstrates the attraction of P2P Global Investments and the wider peer to peer sector from an investment perspective. When we launched the trust in June last year we pioneered the idea of a listed vehicle giving diversified access to a range of leading peer to peer platforms around the world. Since then, we have expanded significantly and the trust is now delivering a strong income return to our investors, as well as accumulating equity in a number of the platforms with whom we have relationships. We received widespread support from both new and existing shareholders and the additional capital raised here will enable us to further benefit from economies of scale and the ever growing opportunity driven by this disruptive technology .”
