What is CapitalRise?

CapitalRise runs 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. CapitalRise is operated by CapitalRise Finance Limited, headquatered in the United Kingdom. It hasn't been licensed by a relevant supervisory authority.

CapitalRise allows 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 CapitalRise offer?

At CapitalRise, you can make GBP-denominated investments starting from £1,000. You can also buy and sell loans on a secondary market.

CapitalRise 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 doesn’t disclose statistics about its funded loans but shares its monthly funding volumes with P2PMarketData.
