The P2P money website

The P2P money website was the first to provide independent coverage of peer-to-peer lending within the United Kingdom.  We're passionate that peer-to-peer lending can help lenders and borrowers alike, and have a positive impact on the economy by facilitating loans to creditworthy individuals and small to medium size enterprises.  The P2P money website provides news on the sector though our blog and Twitter feed, an innovative comparison tool that aids customers compare products, and finally a unique cashback microsite that gives customers an extra incentive to try peer-to-peer lending.  Our mission is to educate and illustrate the benefits of peer-to peer lending.

"I have been a lender since Zopa launched the concept of peer-to-peer lending.  In 2010/11 there was a wave of new companies starting-up in this space, offering new and alternative models.  There wasn't much independent, accurate and unbiased information on the differences between the different peer-to-peer companies, hence the P2P money website was developed.  I'm passionate that peer-to-peer lending can make a positive difference to both lenders and borrowers, be they individuals or businesses."
