LendingCrowd is an online Loan Market which helps businesses access finance easily and quickly, whilst Investors have the potential to earn better returns by lending to them. By directly connecting people and organisations who want to lend, with credit approved businesses who are seeking finance, we eliminate the costs and complexity of the banking world.

Borrowers join LendingCrowd to raise money for lots of reasons. Every business that submits an application is assessed by our Credit Team, who determine whether the business is creditworthy. By the end of the assessment, every business is awarded a Credit Band. Successful businesses are placed on the Loan Market.

Investors can then lend to one or more creditworthy businesses on the Loan Market at a rate they choose. To do that investors load funds to their LendingCrowd account, which is used to place bids on available business loans. The minimum bid investors can place are based upon the credit band each company is assigned, meaning you understand the risks and rewards of the investments you make.

The borrower receives the money they need once the loan is filled and accepted. When the business starts paying back the loan, investors begin receiving monthly repayments based on the overall average interest rate that was bid for the business.

How do they charge?
