They are large and have been consistently profitable, with good quality reporting. While they continue to offer some loans on Mintos, they are now looking to sell loans directly to investors. Lendermarket has adjusted to the new market conditions by increasing the rates it pays to investors from 12% to 14%. It has also increased the amount of the cashback offer from 1% up to 2%, until April 30. New investors can receive a 2% bonus on all net deposited and kept invested until this date.

Estateguru is one of the best European P2P sites. It offers investors loans secured by real estate in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. LTVs are lower than for similar loans in Western Europe and interest rates are attractive – typically 9-12%. The quality of information provided about each loan is extremely good, and lending performance has been strong to date. We have given EstateGuru a 5 star rating. Their normal signup bonus is 0.5% but it is now 1% for investments made from 30 March to 30 April, and 0.5% for any further investments over the following 2 months.
