Guest: Stephen Findlay / CEO & Founder of Bondmason

Welcome to episode 003 of the Financial Thing Investing Essentials Podcast.

Listen in iTunes

My guest is Stephen Findlay, the CEO and founder of Bondmason, one of the companies I used to invest through. Unfortunately, when Bondmason raised their annual fees and upped their minimum investment amount to £5,000, I decided to exit Bondmason.

I thoroughly enjoyed my chat with Stephen, despite his lack for ready to go dad jokes.

Here are some of the things Stephen and I chatted about:

  • The art of telling dad jokes
  • Why was Bondmason created
  • How Stephen keeps lenders’ happy
  • The importance of Director and staff experience
  • How Bondmason is funded and whether it’s a profitable company
  • Lender interest rate projections for the next 12 months
  • The single biggest challenge Bondmason faces
  • Stephen’s assessment of how risky investing in Bondmason really is
  • How much liquid net worth Stephen thinks should you put into peer to peer lending
  • Future Bondmason plans and products

If you want to learn about my personal experiences of investing through Bondmason along with the reasons I decided to exit, you can read my comprehensive Bondmason review here.
