The normal RoI can be as high as 7.2% which is similar to many Hedge Funds. The way they handle defaults is a lot better than many banks. When a lender defaults, Funding Circle will ease back on the payments allowing the company to recover. Often the business is able to return nearly all of the capital.
Funding Circle is brilliant for investors looking for a better return than many bank could give them in the last ten years.
