Wellesley & Co is a secured Peer-to-Peer lending platform. Our core principle is to lend to borrowers whose assets provide tangible security over their loan. Wellesley & Co began lending to borrowers in June 2013, and since November 2013 lenders have been investing in the loans through the Peer-to-Peer lending platform.
Since our launch we have benefitted from massive growth, due to our unique and innovative business model within the sector. We place our own funds into every loan that we make before our investors, offering our investors high rates of return with immediate interest earned on their committed funds.
