Lending Works is a peer-to-peer lender, matching creditworthy personal loan borrowers to shrewd lenders so both receive a much better deal.

Here at Lending Works we believe in a fairer financial world where real people control and directly benefit from their financial transactions. Our vision is to create a credible and desirable alternative to high street banks, offering the products our customers actually want in a fair way.

In order to protect our lenders we provide market leading threefold protection which includes the Lending Works Shield. We have insurance that protects our lenders against: borrower defaults, cybercrime and fraud. No other peer-to-peer lender offers this.
