Yes, you can invest in a SIPP or SASS. For more information about investing via a SIPP or a SSAS please visit the SIPP Club. Please note, this is a specialist asset class, with few providers currently accepting peer to peer investments.
On 6 April 2016 the new Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) was launched enabling investors to invest up to £15,240 each year with a peer-to-peer platform.
Lendy are already working on the infrastructure to allow you to take advantage of the tax-free opportunities an ISA offers.
There is however still one hurdle to be overcome before we can offer the product. In order for us to be able to market an IFISA, the FCA, our governing body have confirmed that we will need full authorisation. At the current time, most of the larger and more established peer to peer platforms (including ourselves) are still operating under interim permission. We are currently working with the FCA on our full authorisation.
Once we are fully authorised by the FCA, we will look to launch an IFISA and we will then send out notifications via email and update our FAQs and website.
