Lendy were extremely proud to take the helm as title sponsor for Lendy Cowes Week 2017. We had successes on the water - most notably winning the Lendy Finance challenge. But also on the shoreside too, where we were overwhelmed by the raft of positivity we received, not only from the local community of Cowes but also competitors and visitors to Lendy Cowes Week.

Our aim at Lendy is to introduce more people to the benefits of P2P, as the sector's benefits are wide reaching - in an era of historically low interest rates P2P investors to Lendy can enjoy highly competitive returns.

Looking ahead Lendy is excited to be back for our second year as headline sponsor and we look forward to building on from our amazing experiences in 2017 and delivering an incredible and equally memorable Lendy Cowes Week 2018.

Five years old and counting

Lendy - The Property Platform is five years old, and is now one Europe's leading peer-to-peer (P2P) secured property lending platforms. We specialise in providing bridging and development finance to property professionals, with funding provided by our established investment platform.

The platform has grown dramatically over the past five years, and now has over 18000 registered users. Between them, they have invested over £345m, and earned in excess of £30m in interest on property loans.

The benefit for investors is obvious; the process is straightforward, providing monthly returns paid directly into each investor's bank account. Our USP for borrowers is our flexible business model, which gives us much more agility than standard banks and bridging lenders, enabling us to make quick decisions and deliver funds very quickly.

Lendy was launched in 2012 by two young entrepreneurs who believed that property investing and borrowing should be easier, and more accessible and rewarding. Take a look at the video below to find out more about the Lendy platform. For more information about how you can become involved, please visit our website.

Matching people who want to invest with people who want to borrow

In simple terms we match people who want to invest in property with people who need to borrow to build, buy and restore thousands of properties across the length and breadth of the UK.

The Lendy platform allows our investors to pool together their funds in order to finance development projects and property purchases. We ensure this process is fast, simple and secure, and that it delivers a gross annual return to our investors of up to 12%, before tax, with all proposals fully assessed by our experienced credit committee before being made available for investment.

Lending is always secured with a legal charge and our loan amounts do not exceed 70 per cent of the Open Market Value, as confirmed by an independent chartered surveyor. This means that in the event of a default there is sufficient equity to allow loan funds to be recouped during a sale. Capital is at risk. No FSCS cover.
