Minimising risk

With over 100 years of combined experience, our Credit Team reviews every borrower application made to LendingCrowd. This means only established, creditworthy and safe businesses are able to borrow through our platform. However, as with all investment opportunities, there are risks involved.


As an investor, your capital is at risk

It’s important to remember that there’s a possibility that a business may not be able to fully repay its loan.

This is known as bad debt and while LendingCrowd has a recovery system in place, you may not receive back all the money you invested.


Minimise your risk – diversify

Diversifying your portfolio is the best way to help manage risk. In other words, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

By spreading your investments across as many businesses as possible on the Loan Market, throughout a range of Credit Bands, you’ll reduce the impact of bad debt if a business can’t repay its loan.
