e ISA (IFISA) market.

Goji has unveiled a ‘platform as a service’ (PaaS) offering for investment providers looking to enter the direct lending sector.

This allows third parties to white label Goji’s own technology platform in order to create their own alternative lending products whilst taking advantage of IFISA and SIPP wrappers.

Three managers are already using Goji’s platform to power their own IFISA offerings.


Jake Wombwell-Povey, CEO, Goji, said:”IFISAs are an easy way for advisers to access the high yields in the Direct Lending sector. The wrapper has captured the attention of BPR, EIS and VCT managers, who are being excluded from their traditional investment avenues.”
