My Peer to Peer Lending Investments, December 2019
Total Portfolio Annual Rate Of Return Since 2015: 8.1%
My return rate doesn’t include any new customer cashback incentives or investments held within Collateral, Lendy and Funding Secure which are in administration. It will take these administration proceeds time to complete so I will add these numbers once the results are known.
You can see how my return rate has fallen over the years as I’ve diversified into more companies to spread risk over the years. I’ve also drifted away from the higher risk loan platforms opting for more stable investments.
Here are my current investments as of December 1st 2019:

When I began investing into peer to peer lending, it was overwhelming. There were so many options and I had so many questions. Which peer to peer sites were reputable and which were the safest? Were they profitably operated and if not, could they sustain losses? Could they recover money from non-paying borrowers? It took months of research to answer these questions and I’m happy to offer my experiences and opinions on Financial Thing.
