Returns still possible despite tough markets


Returns still possible despite tough conditions

Given yesterday’s Bank of England decision to maintain UK interest rates at a record low of 0.5%, and global uncertainties affecting stock, bond, currency and commodities markets, there are very few places left for investors to park their money.

Interest rates globally (excluding the US) will remain on hold for the next 18 months, stock market performance should be ‘ok’ at best this year, bond markets remain high, and dis-inflation is holding down Gold whilst politics are holding down the Oil price.

Therefore Peer-to-Peer* Lending is one of a few places where investors can get returns over the next 18 months!  

*If you invest through LendingCrowd you should understand that as a lender, your capital may be at risk.
