Remember that your capital is at risk with no FSCS protection. Past performance is not a guarantee of future returns and we cannot guarantee that security on the loan will cover full capital and interest.
Unbolted - lower risk, higher returns
Secured loans - earn 8% pa
Unbolted is a peer-to-peer lending platform with a difference - lower risk, with loans secured by pawned assets held in possession. The traditional pawnbroking model reimagined.
Loans are made for short terms against luxury assets, which are conservatively valued and carefully underwritten. LTVs range from 40% (on wine) to 80% (on gold), depending on underlying asset liquidity and ability to hedge price volatility.
All loans earn 0.65% per month in interest, paid semi-annually.
Unbolted’s Autolend is our solution for easy investment and risk diversification for the time constrained lender. Mos t of our loans on the platform are fully distributed through automatic lending instructions.
Sale Advance Loans
In partnership with auction houses, Unbolted advances 40% to 50% of the low auction estimate of an asset consigned for sale with an auction house.
What if Unbolted were to go out of business?
Our business is robust, but we have made arrangements for your loans to be serviced in the unlikely event that Unbolted ceases to trade. A third-party back-up servicer would take our place in servicing the existing loans.
- The appointed back-up servicer is Resolution Compliance Ltd ("RCL"), which is authorised by the FCA to operate an electronic platform in relation to lending under firm reference number 574048.
- While RCL is not authorised to hold client money itself, it is allowed to control client money if required. In the event that Unbolted ceases to trade, your funds will continue to be held in the segregated client money account held in our name but RCL will act as the administrator of the client account. It will receive any payments due from the borrowers into and make any payments to lenders from the existing client account.
- RCL is authorised by the HMRC as an ISA Manager and would be able to take over the administration of the Unbolted ISA accounts. This means loans held within an Unbolted ISA account will keep their tax-free benefits.
- RCL will continue to service and monitor the loans. It will:
- procure payment of the debts due under the loan agreements;
- enforce the rights under the loan agreements on behalf of the lenders;
- receive payments in respect of interest and capital due from borrowers; and
- make payments in respect of interest and capital due to lenders.
- RCL will charge a quarterly fee for providing its services. This fee will not exceed any ongoing income receivable by us and RCL will not charge any additional fees.
Please also note that while a back-up servicer has a contractual obligation to service the loans, there will be some residual risks in the event of the insolvency of a platform.
- the majority of balances due to lenders are those due from borrowers rather than from the platform operator itself. The lenders will not have any entitlement to any balances not yet received from borrowers; and
- the back-up servicer will not have the same incentives as the platform operator in managing the performance of the loans. As such in an insolvency or wind-down scenario, redemption of assets or recovery on defaults may be negatively impacted resulting in lower realisation of balances due.
Risk warning: No recourse to FSCS
Remember that with peer-to-peer lending, your capital is at risk. Peer-to-peer lending platforms are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
