Invest into a peer-to-peer investment platform of your choice with the Hartley Innovative Finance ISA − and enjoy tax-free interest repayments.

What is Peer-to-Peer?

Peer-to-peer (P2P) allows you to lend money to an individual or company from your Innovative Finance ISA. The borrower repays the loan over time, with an agreed interest rate in place. As the P2P investment is held within your ISA, loan repayments you receive are completely tax-free. Please note that the loan must be held through an FCA-regulated P2P platform.

What are the benefits?

Interest rates offered on standard cash ISAs are currently at an all-time low. The alternative to cash ISAs has been Stocks & Shares ISAs (S&S), but these do not guarantee returns and the underlying asset value can be volatile. P2P lending can provide higher interest rates than cash ISAs.

What are the risks?

If your borrower defaults on the loan, you may not receive the money back and you will also lose out on any additional interest.

Transparency on Charges
