At Wellesley, we only participate
in lending which is secured on property
Investing in Peer-to-Peer lending involves matching lenders with borrowers whose loans are secured on property developments.
Similarly, when investing in the Wellesley Property Mini-Bonds or the Property Bond, the proceeds of your investment are used to make loans which are secured on property developments. It is important to understand that a percentage of borrowers will be unable to repay their loan and although each loan has security over property, your capital is at risk.
If a borrower does not repay a loan, we can sell the asset to seek to recover any shortfall however there is no guarantee that the value of the security will be sufficient to cover your capital and interest.
Current Loan Book Performance
We assess loan performance by the ability for the loan security to cover the loan principal and interest.
We consider a non-performing loan to be one where we forecast that the value of the loan security will be insufficient to repay the loan principal and interest. As property development lending carries complexity, we have standard and enhanced monitoring which we deploy relative to the risks and performance of each underlying loan.
Figures correct as at 31/12/2017 and updated quarterly. Figures subject to daily change. Loan Book performance may go up as well as down.
The Loan Book Explained
This is a loan which is performing within the terms and conditions set down in the loan agreement. Any payments of principal or interest have been made on time and we expect the loan to be fully repaid within the original agreed timescale. Wellesley customers will be matched to loans in this category.
This is a loan which is performing within the terms and conditions set down in the loan agreement. It is expected to deliver a full return of principal and interest, although it may have an increased risk profile and it requires closer management from Wellesley Finance to maintain the expectation of a full return of principal and interest. This category of loans is where Wellesley have identified a factor which gives a cause for concern and it is closely examined so that Wellesley can determine whether or not it represents a threat to the full repayment of the loan facilities. Wellesley customers will be matched to loans in this category.
This is a loan where we do not expect the loan security to be enough to cover all of the loan principal and interest. This normally only happens when something has gone seriously wrong with the underlying development, or there has been a severe downturn in the overall market, and the value of the underlying asset has deteriorated considerably.
Investment through Wellesley involves lending to individuals or companies and therefore your capital is at risk and interest payments are not guaranteed if the borrower defaults. It is important to remember that historic loan default rates are not necessarily indicative of future default rates.
