    All down to risk appetite and what you understand...

    Exactly. Risking money you need is foolishness.

    Introducing the Zopa Innovative Finance ISA and Zopa Core

    Dear MF,

    I wanted to write to you and update you on our ISA Manager application, and to inform you of some changes we're making at Zopa.

    Introducing our Innovative Finance ISA

    Pending final approval from HMRC, I’m delighted to let you know that we intend to launch our flexible IFISA – with target returns of up to 6.1% – on 15th June. At first, to manage demand, the IFISA will only be available for existing investors, like you.

    Read more

    Introducing Zopa Core

    In addition to our IFISA, on 15th June we’re excited to also launch our newest peer-to-peer investment product: Zopa Core (3.9% target return). Core will lend in risk markets A*-C without Safeguard coverage and will, by December 2017, replace Access and Classic.

    Read more

    Retiring Access and Classic

    We are retiring Access and Classic from 1st December 2017, which means we will no longer be originating loans with Safeguard coverage after this date. All existing Safeguarded loans will continue to receive coverage (subject to there being sufficient funds in the trust) until December 1st, 2022, by which time all Safeguarded loans will have matured.

    The fund was designed to ensure that investors only paid taxes on the net income they received from Zopa borrowers. In 2015 the tax laws were updated: enabling investors to claim for relief on losses from bad debt. As a result, the primary reason for Safeguard was removed, and we have taken the decision to retire the fund.

    Read more

    You can find more details of our IFISA, Core, and Safeguard’s retirement on our blog. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Investor Services team.

    Best,

    Andrew Lawson

    So they offer to invest into Zopa Core without critical safeguards...

    I'll give it a miss and not just because what Zopa means in Russian...

    Well, happy with my Zopa ISA, nicely ticking along at just over 6% at the moment. Today was the day they were supposed to start taking ISA transfers from previous years, but alas they have told me that they are slipping that by at least 3 months. They've also applied to be a bank, which is nice.

    If they become a bank does that mean we get to bail you out when it goes tits up?

    I asked that. The answer was no on P2P, but they're all pushing for it.
