What is Blend Network?

Blend Network operates a direct marketplace lending platform, which means it operates the "traditional" or "pure" P2P lending model and serves as an online space where borrowers can apply for loans and investors can fund projects. Blend Network is managed by BLEND Loan Network Limited, headquatered in the United Kingdom. It's been granted a credit license from United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Blend Network enables you to provide funding to real estate developers by investing in real estate loans. You can also apply for funding if you are a real estate developer.

What does Blend Network offer?

At Blend Network, you can invest in projects denominated in GBP starting from £1,000. You can also set up an auto-invest feature and buy and sell loans on a secondary market.

Blend Network separates investors’ funds from the platform company assets and has a wind-down plan in place to ensure minimal damage in case the platform goes out of business. It discloses statistics about its funded loans on a dedicated public page and shares its monthly funding volumes with P2PMarketData.
