Buy and sell investments on The Exchange

Access your capital

Diversification is critical and the Exchange allows you to diversify your portfolio easily and quickly. We are thrilled to offer this unique functionality to the Crowd2Fund community.

We've created a free market dynamic, where investors can access their funds and trade loans for profit or loss. Importantly, it also introduces a much-valued social element to the platform - linking a community of supportive investors to entrepreneurs. This positive public service aspect enhances investor appetite for engaging with the platform.

The Exchange is a secondary marketplace and not a Recognised Investment Exchange and as such liquidity is not guaranteed.

How it works

The Exchange is a marketplace which allows investors to trade their Crowd2Fund investments, giving sellers flexible access to their capital and offering loans for buyers.

The Exchange also allows you to lend your capital into loans that are already repaying. You can see the track record of the repayments, diversify your portfolio and make a profit or loss from your transactions.

Selling

We’ve made it simple for you to list your sale on The Exchange. Eligible investments will be highlighted in your Portfolio.

You decide the sale price for the investment. Offering a higher interest rate may encourage a quicker sale, allowing you to access your capital sooner.

Buying

All current opportunities are listed on The Exchange. Please note, these may offer a higher rate of interest than the original investment; this is due to the sale price of the loan and is not necessarily reflective of its level of risk.

Purchasing an investment will simply transfer ownership into your portfolio.

When purchasing an investment on the exchange you are buying the Sale Price and equivalent APR. The business keeps paying the original APR.

Please see the example below

Original Investment, i.e. Original APR:

£250   |   APR 9%   |   4 years

Received 1 repayment of £6.22, of which £1.87 is Interest and £4.35 is Capital

Outstanding Capital is £245.65.

Interest to be earned over the remaining 47 months is £46.75

Investor chooses to sell at APR 8.5%, i.e. Offered APR:

£245.65   |   APR 8.5%   |   47 months

Interest to be earned over the remaining 47 months is £44.02

Sale Price at 8.5%:

Difference between remaining interest of Original and Offered APR:

£46.75 − £44.02 = £2.73

Capital outstanding + Difference in Interest: £245.65 + £2.73 = £248.38

The sale price of this investment at 8.5% is therefore £248.38

Quick Calculation

Total repay − of which is interest = Capital outstanding (on the original investment)

Sale Price − Capital Outstanding = Interest Difference between Original and Offered APR

This difference in interest is the profit/loss that the buyer is earning by selling their investment at a lower or higher APR than the original.
