Compare P2P Lending in Europe

Use the table below to compare p2p lending platforms in Europe. Our Top 10 considers factors including returns, risk, track record, reputation, so you can make the best choice which platforms are right for you. Always remember: peer to peer investing offers the potential for large returns on your money, but rates aren’t guaranteed. 

Choosing the best peer to peer lending platforms for you is a personal choice.  Luckily there are many platforms that offer multiple different strategies within their platform. This allows you to spread your investment across different platforms and different loans. To some investors, only one platform is sufficient, but our recommendation would be to spread your risk and reward by simultaneously investing in multiple platforms.

All the P2P lending platforms reviewed on our website are located in Europe. Most of them are open to investors anywhere in the world, as long as you have an European bank account. At Revolut or TransferWise it is easy to get a European bank account, regardless of your geographic location.
