P2P Loans Less Risky Than Quoted Shares, says CEO

Nicola Horlick

Investors have been eyeing up peer-to-peer loans since the Bank of England cut interest rates last month, looking for a better rate of return than they can get in a savings account. Moneywise reported that seven in 10 of its users would consider using  P2P lending to boost their savings.

Now, the Chief Executive of a peer-to-peer lending firm has given an interview claiming that peer-to-peer loans are less risky than trading equities  on the stock market.
