Weekly marketplace trends
These graphs show the most recent activity on the marketplace. The average gross yield graph is reported weekly and shows a rolling two week average of gross yields. This calculation assumes you reinvest your interest each month and therefore includes the compound interest you earn. Number of loans and value of loans are reported weekly. The dates on the graph should be read as ‘week beginning’, for example: 22-Sep represents the week of 22nd – 28th September.

News you should know
A small change to our T&Cs
We’ve added a new clause into our investor T&Cs to clarify how we hold money on your behalf, to confirm that we will provide annual statements in respect of money held for you and that no interest is paid on balances held. We’re not changing any of our practices, but regulation now requires us to provide this information.
