One of the UK’s largest Peer-to-Peer platforms brings in former RBS and Santander Manager, Samantha Williamson, to support operations across South Manchester

June 2nd 2017: Assetz Capital, one of the UK’s fastest growing peer-to-peer finance platforms, today announced that Samantha Williamson has joined its rapidly expanding Regional Relationship Director team. She will cover the South Manchester region, working closely alongside local businesses and guiding them through the borrowing process.

Williamson joined Assetz Capital from Positive Commercial Finance where she was a Business Development Manager, focusing on helping business facilitate growth and expansion through non traditional methods. Prior to this, Williamson also held management positions at RBS and Santander. Williamson’s role at Assetz Capital is centred on educating local businesses about the value in acquiring finance through the peer-to-peer platform and ensuring the borrowing process is as simple as possible.

Stuart Law, CEO of Assetz Capital commented: "Assetz Capital has its head office in Manchester and as such we know first hand the struggles that local businesses can go through to acquire funding through the more traditional methods. The appetite for P2P lending here is growing and Samantha brings a great wealth of knowledge to her role as Regional Relationship Director. It's going to be an exciting year for Assetz Capital as we continue to grow and Samantha’s experience is invaluable to the team.”

Samantha Williamson said: “I’ve worked for many years supporting SMEs around Manchester and believe Assetz Capital offers a much needed solution for those struggling to acquire finance. My role will be to raise the profile of peer-to-peer lending throughout South Manchester and to ensure that businesses which gain funding through Assetz Capital are guided through the process.”

Founded in 2013, Assetz Capital is now the third largest peer-to-peer business lending platform in Europe, and one of the fastest growing in the market. It is one of only two Defaqto “5 Star” rated P2P platforms, and also recently announced that its investors have earned gross interest of more than £21m in just four years, and over £100m was lent to British SMEs in 2016.

Since launch, Assetz Capital has become known for its secure investment model where every loan is backed with property, and/or other realisable security in order to reduce the risk of actual loss for investors. As a result, the company has one of the lowest loss rates in the market. Currently there is over £500 million available and ready to lend to credit-worthy SMEs through the platform.

WEALTH WARNING: As with most forms of investment, peer-to-peer lending carries a degree of risk to your capital; in this case, if borrowers were unable to repay their loans. At Assetz Capital, we seek to reduce this risk to our investors by taking asset security on every loan, with the added benefit of a discretionary Provision Fund for some of our investment accounts.
