P2P platform sees strong growth in investors

P2P lending platform Lendy has grown its investor base to 20,000 in the past year, according to a statement by the firm, representing a more than 50 per cent increase.

The secured property lender has seen strong demand in particular from investors under 40 years of age. It had 13,000 investors in total a year ago, it says. Investors aged below 40 now represent 50 per cent of the property platform’s investor base.

Investors, Lendy adds, have now received more than £37m in interest from Lendy loans since inception in 2012, up from £16m at the end of 2016. The total value of loans originated through the platform is now more than £373m including a £2.3m secured against a luxury apartment in Cheyne Gardens, Chelsea.

Formally known as Savings Stream, with a specialism of loans secured against yachts, Lendy is now purely in the secured property lending market. It sponsored the prestigious Cowes Week sailing regatta last summer.
