Zopa Discontinues 1 Year Loans
Zopa stopped accepting applications for 1 year p2p loans today and now concentrates on 2-5 year loan terms.
…we’ve stopped accepting applications for 1 year loans.
We introduced 1 year loans at the start of the year, with the expectation that they would become a strong channel for new loans and provide good returns to savers. We have found that a large number of customers have now come to us applying for 1 year loans, but unfortunately we approve comparatively few of them and for the time being we believe it is ultimately better for savers to bring in more applicants for 2-5 year loans (which are much more popular choices of loan length) than continue to assess 1 year applicants.
