Filip Karadaghi, LandlordInvest’s chief executive, said: “LandlordInvest.com has in its first year of operations, established itself as a leading platform for real-estate backed loans within the fast-growing P2P industry by becoming one of the first fully FCA authorised platforms, an Innovative Finance ISA manager… [and] received financial backing from respected business angels.

“In the spirit of the P2P lending and transparency, we now publish our loan book to the public to allow investors and borrowers alike to make informed decisions when either investing or borrowing through LandlordInvest.com.

“The loan book shows that investors on LandlordInvest’s lending platform have since inception on average earned returns that outperform both the stock market, bonds and house prices. Considering the low returns offered by many ISAs, in many instances below the inflation rate, this shows that UK investors have strong inflation beating alternative to traditional asset classes in property-backed P2P lending.”
