Assetz Capital is now the third largest business and property P2P lender in the UK, according to independent data tables. With a long term growth plan firmly in place and the addition of Rob Pailin as our new Chief Commercial Officer, in 2017 we expect to increase lending even further and we have now lent £100 million so far in 2016. Amidst financial uncertainty across the whole of Europe, investors looking for a return on their capital are increasingly turning to alternative finance methods to grow their portfolio. The Peer to Peer lending sector has proven its worth in supporting SMEs and their finance requirements and we expect it to continue to be a major net lender in the UK.”
