Wellesley & Co is a leading alternative finance platform that enables investors to make healthy returns on their capital in the form of attractive interest rates by connecting them with creditworthy borrowers seeking a competitive source of funding.

Our business model blends technological innovation with traditional values – a combination which has been at the centre of our success and is integral to our vision for the future.

Above all, we seek to conduct ourselves with integrity and the highest professional standards, striving at all times to achieve high quality investment returns for our lenders whilst delivering a marketing leading service to our borrowers.

We call it ‘The Wellesley Way’.

“Wellesley & Co operates in an exciting sector which traditionally has been dominated by the high street banks; we lend the money of our investors to carefully chosen borrowers. Our speciality is asset-backed lending.”

What is Peer-to-Peer lending?

Peer-to-Peer lending, often abbreviated to ‘P2P’ lending, is the practice whereby individuals lend money to other individuals or businesses through online services. The lender gets a more favourable rate of interest than they would typically be offered by a conventional provider and the borrower benefits in a similar manner.

P2P lending doesn’t fit cleanly into any of the three traditional types of financial institution – deposit taking, investment or insurance – and is sometimes categorised as ‘alternative finance’.

There are many types of Peer-to-Peer lending in operation around the world. Many Peer-to-Peer loans are unsecured personal loans made to consumers, although some P2P platforms, such as Wellesley & Co, specialise in making secured loans to businesses and using physical assets, such as property, as security for those loans.
