Our expert team provides specialist P2P regulatory support for the peer-to-peer lending (or P2P lending) sector.
We provide an extensive regulatory support service with a 100% success rate supporting P2P lending firms through the FCA authorisation process and we help many of the UK’s peer-to-peer lenders stay up to speed with a constantly evolving regulatory landscape.
We can support you with a comprehensive range of P2P regulatory support services that includes: auditing, training and advisory services. The experience and insight that comes with having been involved in the P2P lending market from day one means we’re well-equipped to support you in meeting your regulatory obligations.
The concept of P2P lending – where an online intermediary platform connects borrowers and lenders – is still relatively new. It’s grown rapidly, however, as it offers borrowers a route to finance they might struggle to access via more traditional lenders.
P2P lending was given a significant boost by the introduction of the tax-free Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) in 2016. Many P2P lenders now take full advantage of the IFISA to offer lenders competitive rates in an attractive tax wrapper.
With new regulatory guidance coming out of the FCA all the time, it’s vital all participants in an industry as dynamic as P2P lending keep fully up to date. Recent examples include the FCA’s intervention on peer-to-peer lenders’ wind-down arrangements, the FCA’s review of the property lending sector, and the long-awaited FCA Policy Statement – just some of the many areas in which we can provide P2P regulatory support.
Whether you’re just starting out as a P2P lender or an established business looking for ongoing or ad-hoc P2P regulatory support, we’d love to hear from you. We can also support in a number of ways including, but not limited to: assisting or drafting key policies and manuals (as required for P2P lenders), new regulatory framework implementations and large project work related to model and product development.
