One in four interested in including P2P loans in their SIPP
Addressing concerns around regulation and lack of investor understanding of P2P sector could boost interest further
LONDON, Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Research released by BLEND Network, a leading property investment platform specialising in funding low-cost, accessible housing developments outside of London, shows significant interest from private pension holders in holding P2P loans via self-invested personal pension (SIPP). One in four of the survey respondents said they are interested in including P2P loans in a SIPP, and that if concerns around regulation and a lack of understanding of the sector were addressed, this figure could be higher still.
Yann Murciano, CEO of BLEND Network, commented:
"The findings of our research clearly reflects significant demand among private pension holders for access to P2P lending via SIPPs. It also indicates reservations on the part of investors around regulatory developments and understanding of the product. However, the Government, FCA and organisations such as the P2P Finance Association have the opportunity to address the concerns of the SIPP holders we surveyed expressed and further help the growth of the P2P sector."
