Dena Chadderton, Senior Advisor in BWB Compliance, has spoken to P2P Finance News regarding the possibility that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) may “lump peer-to-peer lending in with riskier investment products as part of its crackdown on promotions”.
Speaking to Marc Shoffman Dena said “With the right risk warnings, P2P lending is not difficult to understand and many loans are secured on underlying assets. While there is capacity for capital loss, the investor can limit their exposure by diversifying their investment across asset classes or over a number of loans.
Commenting further in this piece Dena said, “Compare this to spreadbetting, where the investment is leveraged and the investor can have unlimited exposure to loss and we see a very different story.”
