Lending Works Launches Innovative Finance ISA

Lending Works has launched its innovative finance ISA; company offers unsecured loans to consumers; investors can invest over three or five years earning approximately 4% to 4.7% respectively; platforms RateSetter, Zopa and Funding Circle are still awaiting full authorization; on the subject of the major players still awaiting authorization Matthew Powell, director at Lending Works commented: “Among peer-to-peer firms there is some frustration over why it’s taken so long. The regulator might have uncovered some things that they’re not entirely happy about. I think the FCA has been surprised in the variation over the types of platforms they have had to examine. We’re an easier prospect than some to understand – we’re literally just the middleman, we don’t take a balance sheet risk, and we don’t lend our own money.”  Source
