What is Lend?

Lend 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. Lend is managed by Switzerlend AG, based in Switzerland. It’s associated with a self-regulatory organisation in Switzerland - PolyReg Self-Regulatory Organisation.

Lend gives you the opportunity to provide funding to individuals, and real estate developers by investing in personal loans, and real estate loans. You can also apply for funding if you are an individual seeking financing, or a real estate developer.

What does Lend offer?

At Lend, you can invest in projects denominated in CHF starting from CHF1,000.

Lend 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.
