Zopa opens its platform to new investors

As you might have seen in the FT, we’re opening our platform to new investors for the first time since March 2017.

In March 2017, we put in place a waiting list to prioritise existing customers and ensure they continued to enjoy the best possible investing experience. After growing lending volumes by 43% in 2017, and becoming the first peer-to-peer consumer lender to disburse more than £100 million in a single month, we’re ready to open again.

Here’s what it means for you

For our existing customers:

If you already invest at Zopa, you can use a new Fast Pass to jump your family and friends to the front of the waiting list. If the person you refer invests over £2,000, you’ll both get a £50 bonus when that money’s lent out. You can find your Fast Pass at the bottom of the summary page on your dashboard.

Remember, you can also transfer pre-existing ISAs into the Zopa ISA, maintaining the ISA wrapper, without reducing your current year’s allowance. Zopa’s ISA is also flexible, which means you can take money out and replace it, without the replacement counting towards the year’s ISA allowance.

New customers:

If you’re new to Zopa, you’re now able to sign up to the waiting list to invest on the platform. When you reach the front of the queue, you’ll join more than 60,000 investors earning returns up to 4.6% through Zopa.

We offer four investment products, Core, ISA Core, Plus, and ISA Plus, with the same attractive returns across our ISA and non-ISA products. Find out more about Zopa’s products.
