4thWay's quick expert Zopa review
The oldest P2P lending company and with a fantastic record
The first P2P lending website in the world, started in 2005, and with lending measured in billions, Zopa's very experienced former bankers, underwriters and risk modellers continue to produce great results through excellent borrower selection processes.
Zopa is very transparent, so that we can assess its results in great detail using risk modelling and investing techniques. It is easy to spread your money across lots of loans by either lending a minimum of £1,000 or by lending regularly. After many years of investing for growth, Zopa's CEO believably informs that it is on track to become profitable in 2017 and it startup investors gave it another £40 million in 2017.
Zopa has demonstrated that it is willing to take steps to maintain the high quality of its borrowers and to keep a sensible floor on interest rates, even when those steps have slowed Zopa's own growth.
