Peer to Peer Lending (P2P) Specialists
Orca is a team of peer to peer investment specialists. Peer to peer lending is a completely different asset class to equities or bonds. Evaluating P2P investments requires different performance metrics.
Why Peer to Peer Lending?
Peer to peer investments can offer stable, risk-adjusted returns which diversify personal investment portfolios.
In a low-yield environment, Peer to peer lending can offer stable, predictable, risk-adjusted returns. Peer to peer investments offer average annual returns of between 5% and 6%. Investors can achieve upwards of 10% annually, depending on their appetite for risk.
Efficient Asset Class
Offering credit as an investment has been around for centuries. Credit assessment is not new. Peer to peer lending providers have innovated by offering an efficient, low-costing method of accessing credit investments.
Peer to peer investments are not listed on an exchange, meaning the performance of assets are not correlated to stock market volatility. P2P assets are likely to perform better during an economic downturn in comparison to equities or bonds.
Peer to peer lending allows investors to diversify into an alternative asset class. Some of the largest P2P providers auto-diversify investors’ capital across a large number of borrowers, increasing their exposure, and reducing the risk of borrower default.
Innovate Finance ISA
The new Innovate Finance ISA (IFISA) allows investors to hold their peer to peer lending investments in a tax-efficient ISA wrapper. P2P Providers offering the IFISA can be found on the Orca IFISA tracker page.
Income or Growth
Investors often have the choice of taking interest payments as an income, or for these payments to be reinvested, enabling capital growth.
