Goji celebrates first year of investment bond

Goji has reported a strong first year for its diversified lending bond, which has yielded a net return of 6% to investors.

The investment platform and manager launched its first P2P lending proposition last year, which opened access for financial advisers and wealth managers to the direct lending market.

This was through the launch of the Goji diversified lending bond which invested in over 1,200 loans during 2017, spreading the risk across various direct lending partners and different sectors of the economy.

These sectors included funding for SMEs, universities and renewable energy projects.

“With interest rates remaining low and government debt generating small yields, direct lending provides a new opportunity for advisers to support their clients in achieving their goals, without taking on substantially more risk,” said Jake Wombwell-Povey, CEO and co-founder of Goji (pictured above).

“Better still, Goji's regulated bonds are available within the new Innovative Finance Isa, allowing you to advise your clients on how to grow their wealth in a tax-efficient manner.”
