  • Inflation & The Plight of the Honest Saver

    Anyone clinging to the belief that their deposits with the bank, building society or National Savings are holding their value must surely have received a wake-up call this week with the news that inflation hit 2.3% in February. At this level – the highest since September 2013 and already ahead of the Government’s 2% target […] The post Inflation & The Plight of the Honest Saver appeared first on A...

  • The Balancing Act

    From former City regulators like Lord Adair Turner to current ones like Andrew Bailey, the chief executive of the FCA, everyone overseeing or commenting on P2P appears to be convinced that the sector is sitting on a time-bomb of bad loans. Inevitably, the mainline Press has taken up the cry by issuing grave warnings of […] The post The Balancing Act appeared first on ArchOver.

  • Fashionable Revolutions

    Revolutions often involve a degree of fashion. One minute they capture the imagination and are all the rage, the next they old-hat and face apathy or even outright derision. It feels a bit like that with the P2P sector which, having been once the darling of the financial market place, is now viewed with grave […] The post Fashionable Revolutions appeared first on ArchOver.

  • The Bank Model: Broken?

    Each day brings fresh evidence that the traditional UK banking model is under intense pressure, if not actually on the verge of breaking down altogether. RBS was on the receiving end of some elaborate media speculation last weekend that it was planning to shed a further 15,000 jobs to save £800m per annum in costs; […] The post The Bank Model: Broken? appeared first on ArchOver.

  • Consolidation and The Plight of Thrifty Consumers

    The storm clouds are gathering for the P2P sector – they have been for about a year now, ever since a few prominent platforms (e.g. Lending Club and Funding Knight) started to get into trouble and the mainline media’s enthusiasm for all things ‘Alternative Finance’ suddenly took a 180 degree about-turn. We are still enjoying […] The post Consolidation and The Plight of Thrifty Consumers appeared f...

  • “Neither a borrower nor a lender be”

    The phrase “Neither a borrower nor a lender be” sounds both elegant and wise, but if the advice contained in those words, taken from a passage in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, were to be adopted literally, the commercial world as we know it today would come to a shuddering halt. Whether we like it or not, money […] The post “Neither a borrower nor a lender be” appeared first on ArchOver.

  • ARCHOVER EXPANDS P2P BUSINESS LENDING SERVICES

    ArchOver, the premier P2P business lending platform, has launched ‘Secured & Assigned’ business loans, expanding from its current ‘Secured & Insured’ lending model. ArchOver’s first Secured & Assigned loan will be for Ergowealth, a firm of chartered financial planners based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. Founded in 2013 by a group of experienced financial planning professionals, the […] The post ARCH...

  • Conflicting Information

    It is sometimes difficult to know who to believe when there is conflicting information emanating from two supposedly reputable sources – the pre-Brexit propaganda war immediately springs to mind. In this case, we have the NACFB proclaiming that there is a ‘plethora of lenders’ in the market, while Small Business recently reported that 1,093 small companies […] The post Conflicting Information appe...

  • France

    There was a time, not so long ago, when having some cash in the bank earning a reasonable level of interest was considered quite a smart thing to be doing, particularly since you could be pretty certain that your capital was safe. But that was before the 2008 financial crisis and interest rates fell through […] The post France appeared first on ArchOver.

  • Switzerland

    Switzerland is widely recognised as having one of the most independent, prosperous and stable economies in the world, which is why for decades nervous investors have regarded the country as a safe haven for their money in times of global turbulence. In 2014, when Russia was facing huge problems and money was pouring into Switzerland […] The post Switzerland appeared first on ArchOver.

  • ‘Bricks and Mortar’ Security

    The Great British love affair with property and the unwavering belief that, whatever else happens in the world, good old ‘bricks and mortar’ will always be there to save the day, evidently remains undiminished. The major banks have based a huge part of their entire existence on using real estate assets as security and judging […] The post ‘Bricks and Mortar’ Security appeared first on ArchOver.

  • 2017 Economic Outlook

    Uncertainty created by the ‘double whammy’ of surprise Brexit vote and the unexpected elevation of Donald Trump to the US Presidency has given way to some gloomy 2017 predictions from the UK’s senior business community. According to the most recent Boardroom Bellwether – conducted twice a year by ICSA, the Governance Institute, in conjunction with […] The post 2017 Economic Outlook appeared first ...

  • “The P2P Sector Is Growing Up”

    There was always going to come a time when the Alternative Finance revolution would falter – maybe we have already reached that point. P2P lending and equity crowdfunding are no longer quite so new and, as the latest missive from the FCA makes clear, this particular side of the Altfi sector has outgrown the rule […] The post “The P2P Sector Is Growing Up” appeared first on ArchOver.

  • FCA Feedback Statement II

    Last week’s Interim Feedback Statement from the FCA on its review of the rules governing the Crowdfunding industry was a masterclass in British fair play. No one will ever be able to accuse the regulator of not giving anyone and everyone the opportunity to have their say – the knockers of P2P lending have certainly […] The post FCA Feedback Statement II appeared first on ArchOver.

  • FCA Feedback Statement

    No one ever said that the FCA’s task of setting out a definitive set of rules and regulations for the crowdfunding industry was going to be easy, but last week’s interim feedback statement underlines just how far the regulator’s deliberations still have to go. It doesn’t help that the report talks about the dangers of […] The post FCA Feedback Statement appeared first on ArchOver.

  • ARCHOVER ‘TOWARDS THE TOP WHEN IT COMES TO LENDER PROTECTION’

    A new study by independent research house Equity Development concludes that ArchOver’s ‘secured and insured’ proposition puts its business model “towards the top when it comes to lender protection.” To date, ArchOver has suffered no late payments, write-offs or bad debts. The author of the report, analyst Paul Hill, predicts that ArchOver “will become much […] The post ARCHOVER ‘TOWARDS THE TOP WH...

  • Time to Break the Invoice Financing Habit

    Many SMEs automatically cover the gap between production and payment by using invoice financiers (IFs), which claim to advance between 80% and 100% of the value of each invoice raised, but on average advance only about 63%. This has been fuelled by the reluctance of the traditional banks to lend to SMEs, but virtually all […] The post Time to Break the Invoice Financing Habit appeared first on Arc...
