RateSetter appoints Business Development Manager for North of England

RateSetter has grown from start-up in 2010 to a platform that has originated more than £2bn of loans. It has over 300,000 active investors and borrowers, making it one of the largest FinTech business in the UK.

RateSetter pioneered many firsts in peer-to-peer lending, including the Provision Fund model. All borrowers pay a risk-adjusted premium into the Provision Fund, which reimburses investors in the event of a borrower default. The Provision Fund has a 100% track record to date, but capital is at risk and RateSetter is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Another innovative feature of RateSetter is that the interest rate on the platform is set by the supply and demand of money, not by the platform itself. The aspiration is that this rate will become a benchmark rate for money.

In 2014, RateSetter became the first peer-to-peer lender to launch with a retail licence in Australia.

In November 2016, the platform won Best Peer-to-Peer Lender in the FT and Investors Chronicle Wealth Management Awards for the third year running. RateSetter was the highest-rated platform by Which? readers in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
