WITH the Bank of England widely expected to cut interest rates this afternoon, savers are bracing themselves for a further drop in the already pitiful returns they are earning on deposit accounts. The rates of interest offered on crowdfunded debt securities typically range from 6 per cent to 12 per cent, depending on the risk associated with the business. Crowdfunded debt products might be riskier, but their higher rates of return make them worth a look.
Crowd for Angels is delighted to announce that growth company guru and charity ambassador Oliver Rothschild has become a shareholder in the company. This further strengthens his ties with the business, at which he became a special advisor to the board in January this year.
While the crowdfunding industry is probably better known for its equity products, there is a rapidly growing and attractive sub-sector developing for debt based crowdfunded securities. According to innovation charity Nesta a total of £6.2 million was raised via debt based securities in 2015. This was up by 47.6% on the previous year, as investors became increasingly attracted to their benefits.

Driven by increasing life expectancy rates and record low interest rates, levels of income provided by annuities have plunged over the past couple of decades. Back in the 1990s a 65 year old man with a pension fund of £100,000 could quite easily secure an income of c.£15,000 a year until death via a life annuity. However in 2016 an equally large pension pot is unlikely to pay our retiree more than £5,000 per annum. Could crowdfunding be the answer?
