At Money&Co., we facilitate P2P lending, but the asset backing comes in the form of a floating charge on the assets of our borrower small companies. This can include property, but also extends to plant and machinery and other assets.
The average gross return achieved by Money&Co lenders is just over 9.1 per cent. For more on P2P lending via Money&Co., click here.
