2 innovative lending accounts
Loanpad offers a combination of elements you won't find on any other lending platform.
Daily interest which you can hold, re-invest or withdraw whenever you like.
Unique protection of your investments through loan-sharing, daily diversification, our interest cover fund and more.
Ease and simplicity – you can use our intuitive online platform to check your interest and our portfolio of loans daily, and you can move money between your accounts as much as you want.
Your money is spread over loans that are shared between our investors and experienced lending partners who take on the higher risk part of each loan for a higher rate of interest.
* These are annual rates paid daily into your cash account – after fees but before tax. If you choose to reinvest your interest daily, you’ll enjoy even higher returns. Rates are variable and could change.
** We do all we can to release your money as soon as you ask for it. But this does depend on funds being available, and from time to time there may be a slight delay.

It’s up to you to make sure you handle your investment portfolio wisely – for example, by diversifying your investments and making sure you understand the potential risk and reward of each type of investment, including peer-to-peer lending. You should carefully read and consider the risk factors discussed in this risk notice and the details on our Invest and ISA pages before deciding to invest. If you are unsure, you should consult your own financial adviser.
Any money you invest should not constitute a substantial proportion of your investment portfolio. You should have sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters so as to be capable of evaluating such risks. You represent that you satisfy these criteria and that you are investing on that basis.
While we do all we can to minimise the risk you’re exposed to through Loanpad, there are still some risks involved in investing with Loanpad.
Here’s a summary of the main ones to help you make an informed decision about investing with Loanpad. This list isn’t exhaustive, but it should give you a good idea of the kinds of things that can affect the repayment of your money.
The risk of lower than expected returns
It is possible that a borrower could default and stop repaying the loan and its interest to you. In this case, you run the risk of not getting back the money you’ve loaned to that borrower and/or not receiving your daily interest in full.
The risk of not being able to withdraw your money immediately
It’s important to us – and no doubt to you – that you can access your money when you want it. When you request a withdrawal from a Loanpad account, your request goes into our sale queue, which is processed once a day. We do our best to clear the sale queue in full each day, but there’s no guarantee that we’ll always be able to.
Just because you can’t withdraw your money straight away, doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s at higher risk. It means there isn’t enough available money (funds not tied up in loans) on the platform to process your withdrawal. Potential withdrawal delays are a feature of a lending site like Loanpad – and it’s important that you understand this.
The risk of losing your money
When you lend money, you rely on the borrower repaying it. If, for example, a borrower’s credit circumstances take a turn for the worse, they may struggle to repay the loan. And if this happens, you run the risk of not getting back the money you’ve loaned to that borrower.
In addition, Loanpad is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). As with any investment, your capital is at risk and the value of your investment may go up or down in value.
More general economic risks
The UK economy could be affected by instability in its banking sector and by a variety of other macro-economic factors. This, in turn, could significantly constrain the availability of credit and make it more expensive. Market volatility and spells of risk aversion could also negatively impact the UK property and loan markets.
Loanpad could be adversely affected by various factors beyond our control, including (but not limited to):
