    Welcome to episode 010 of the Financial Thing Investing Essentials Podcast.

    Listen in iTunes

    My guest is once again Stuart Law, the CEO and founder of Assetz Capital. Stuart has been an entrepreneur since 18 years old and founded Assetz Capital to solve the capital shortage problem smaller businesses face. Assetz Capital offers several different products that provide lenders ways to receive respectable returns in the era of despicably low savings rates.

    Stuart provides his insight into the inner workings of Assetz Capital and the general future of peer to peer lending. Here are some of the podcast discussion points:



    * Assetz Capitals new Property Secured Account

    * The reasons for the fall of Assetz Capitals lender return rates

    * Collateral’s closure

    * How Assetz Capital is increasing profitability

    * Lender response to the new IFISA

    * The status and future of the Green Energy Account

    * Stuart’s advice to new peer to peer lenders

    * Dissatisfaction of RCIS property valuations and how to tackle this issue

    * How to successfully recover defaulted loans

    * The challenges Assetz Capital still faces

    * Future Assetz Capital plans and innovations



    The conversation was extremely insightful as Assetz Capital is a company I have had great experiences using and one I continue to invest my own money through.

    Lendy was one of the most popular peer to peer companies offering property bridging and development loans where lenders can earn up to 1% per month. Unfortunately, Lendy investors suffered losses when Lendy failed due to poor loan offerings followed by allegations of fraud.

    I was very disappointed when Lendy failed. Remember all investments carry risk so don’t invest more than you can afford to lose and be sure to diversify.
