RateSetter is a British peer-to-peer lending platform that provides loans to households and businesses. Since launching in Autumn 2010 they’ve lent around £2bn, making them one of the ‘big 3’ platforms (RateSetter, Zopa, Funding Circle).
RateSetter are a ‘hands-off’ platform with no individual loan-part management/selection: you just choose an investment product and rate. For this reason it’s an easier platform to start off with for P2P lending beginners. You choose an investment product and rate of return that you would be happy to lend at, then wait for the lending market to match your offer. Choose a rate that is too high and your money will be sat there without earning interest. Choose a rate that is too low and miss out on higher returns! Read more “RateSetter Review”
