Funding Circle

Or circle fuck.

I mentioned that FC had pulled funding for one of my kids friends Dad.

I did wonder if this was a one off or if they were pulling out cash.

Saw another FC default this week so had a look.

They do seem to be getting twitchy with their capital.

The peer funding lenders aren't properly pricing in defaults in a recessionary economy.  FC are reacting now but it is probably too late.  IMO there's going to be carnage in this sector.

Their website has lots of theoretical data on what will happen, but the killer is that the P2P lending sector has never actually been through a recession so actual data is nonexistent.

I agree that carnage is the most likely outcome, best watched from a safe distance!

At least the list of names is very diverse, so you have to give them kudos for that 21st century aim.

I have said in the past on this board that some believe that they deliberately stopped people from selecting exactly what businesses to invest in because it was being noticed that lots of ethnic borrowers with A+ ratings were doing a runner, and some new A+ ethnic borrowers were not reaching their funding goals.

Yeah. ~30% with non English names, whatever that means these days.

Quite a lot of Slavik/EE names too.

I started off with one car in 2012 and have been so impressed, I have invested in more vehicles as I've gone along. My wife Alma and I live comfortably off our monthly ‘car wages’ and at the end of the three years have a lump sum to re-invest. I’ve been an investor for over 10 years and I can honestly say this is my best investment. I would really encourage anyone with any questions to contact Reg and Scott direct – they are really friendly and will happily answer any questions on 0800 014 9228 or visit the website.

He gave up and went to work in a car showroom in Battersea, but soon realised there were plenty of people buying brand new Range Rovers for cash, even in the depths of austerity. Audaciously, he put an advert in the Sunday Times, saying he wanted to talk to someone with wealth who might be interested in a new venture. “It worked,” he says. “Twelve people showed an interest. I took the first one, and he said let’s keep it exclusive. We met the following week. Three hours later, I had funding and a new business.”

Cough black drug dealers cough.

Funding Circle move the goalposts..... again

Check you inboxes folks
All private investors will be receiving this lovely e mail,

What this means, in everyday language is that there are no more loan sales, we are all stuck with waiting for some Bracknell based kebab shop owner to pay 6 pence a month for the next 58 years.

P2P lending is finished, there are simply too many borrowers who never have any intention of repaying the loans, it really is that simple.

Investors in Funding Circle using Trustpilot need to be very aware that the vast majority of good ratings come from people comment how easy it was to borrow money; a big red flag for an investor. My returns over 2 years have dropped from the c7.5% advertised to 3% or maybe even less. A huge number of defaults. The only way that FC can change this is to 1. put in place far more stringent criteria for lending money and 2. a much more credible and robust way to recover bad debts - BOTH current and historical debt. Only these measures, if they are able to do effectively implement them, will raise returns and give confidence to investors

Me n me boyz Ahmed, borrowed 50k for kebab shop...

Recover debts...gonna be hard when Mohammed changes his name by letter to million versions of Mohammed out there.

Never used one of these P2P sites, I'm guessing you have no idea who you're lending too? As giving Mo in Bracknell my life savings for his kebab shop wouldn't exactly have me sleeping well at night.

Neither would I but kebab shop must be a hell of an earner. "Muzzy's kebabs" seems very popular (a mobile caravan thing just outside Bracknell on the road to Sandhurst) and cash business. I wouldn't complain.

All the kebab shops round here have been dead for years. Can't remember the last time I saw a busy one anywhere come to think of it.
