7. Managing your online account

  • How do I add funds to my LendInvest account?

    There are two ways to add funds to your LendInvest account: from a UK-issued debit card or by bank transfer. Currently we do not accept funds from credit or charge cards.

    When adding funds via bank transfer, please ensure that you include your unique LendInvest reference number as the transfer reference (beginning “GBR”). Please note that from 1 May 2017, our bank details have changed. If you have previously added funds before this date, you will need to save new bank details before adding further funds by bank transfer. Our new bank details are available in your online account.

  • When will the funds I have sent arrive in my LendInvest account?

    Adding funds via debit card is instantaneous. Adding funds by bank transfer can take up to three business days depending on the speed of the bank transfer. Deposits by bank transfer are processed twice on each working day, typically around 10:00am and 3:00pm. You will receive an automatic email notification when your LendInvest account balance has been updated.

  • Where is my money held when I transfer funds?

    Investor funds are held by LendInvest in a segregated client account with Barclays Bank Plc.

  • How do I withdraw my available balance?

    Please log into your online account. Go to the ‘Available balance’ and click ‘Withdraw’. Your available balance will be sent to your nominated bank account.

    When you add bank account details for the first time, you will need to send us a PDF copy of a bank statement from your chosen account so we can verify it before transferring funds.

  • How do I make an investment?

    Eligible investors can view all available investment opportunities in the ‘Invest’ tab of their online account. Clicking ‘More details’ on an individual investment will show you detailed information about the loan and the underlying security. Once you’ve chosen a loan, click the ‘Invest’ button to make your investment.
