Peer-to-peer lender reaches £100m in arranged loans and expects to grow

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Thursday 30 September 2010 10:19 pm Tags: NULL ONLINE peer-to-peer lender Zopa has smashed past the £100m arranged loans mark as demand for alternative banking surges.The bank says the success of its model, where individual lenders and borrowers agree their own terms, is partly a reflection of low interest rates. Chief executive Giles Andrews told City A.M. he expects the firm to rapidly increase its share of the UK lending market from one per cent over the next few years.He said: “There is no reason we can’t have 10 or 20 per cent of the market. There are far more people wanting to borrow than there are lenders.“We have the best performing loan book in the UK, better than the high street banks with a default rate of just 0.7 per cent. Zopa provides hard evidence that person-to-person lending works and can be hugely beneficial for both borrowers and lenders. “Both groups have enjoyed a far better deal than the banks offer. Given the banks show no sign of reducing the huge spreads they charge between borrowing and lending, we are sure this growth will continue.” KCS-content Sharecenter_img More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusUndo Peer-to-peer lender reaches £100m in arranged loans and expects to grow Show Comments ▼ last_img read more

It was still the seventh straight month of gains.Economists polled by Reuters had expected spending, which accounts for about 70 per cent of US economic activity, to rise 0.4 per cent in January.Real spending fell 0.1 per cent, the first decline in a year, after rising 0.3 per cent in December. The drop in real spending offered an early confirmation that spending would slow down after rising sharply in the last three months of 2010. Spending in the fourth quarter grew at a 4.1 per cent annual rate, the fastest in more than four years.Incomes rose one per cent last month, the largest increase since May 2009, after increasing 0.4 per cent in December. The increase in January outpaced economists’ expectations for a 0.4 per cent gain. Savings jumped to $677.1bn (£420bn), the highest level since August, from $620.9bn in December.The report also showed the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of consumer inflation – the personal consumption expenditures price index, excluding food and energy – edged up 0.1 per cent last month, after being unchanged in December.In the 12 months to January, the core PCE index rose 0.8 per cent after rising by the same margin in December.

Tries from Jamie Duncan, centre Ben Marsden and hooker Dominic Sheratte clinched a famous win in which there were standout displays by Sadler, Marsden, flanker Johnny Kenny and scrum-half Henry Ravenscroft.Sadler has been a key man up front alongside a strong front row of Dan Percival, Sheratte and Mike Parker. Kenny, who missed out on an England U16 cap through injury two years ago, has been a great ball-carrier, Marsden has made breaks and ground constantly, and Ravenscroft – last year’s full-back – has slotted effortlessly into the No 9 shirt.

Newcastle’s Richard Mayhew crunches Harlequins’ Sam Smith

first_imgThursday Dec 5, 2013 Newcastle’s Richard Mayhew crunches Harlequins’ Sam Smith This is a very quick clip of a great tackle that happened in Round 9 of the Aviva Premiership, in the game between Newcastle Falcons and Harlequins at Kingston Park. Harlequins came away with a comfortable 35-9 victory.Quins scored four tries to get the bonus point win but Newcastle made one of the hits of the game, with flanker Mayhew timing things really well to come in and smash winger Sam Smith.You can see that Smith stayed down for a while, and Mayhew’s timely intervention probably prevented a try as Harlequins had a clear overlap out wide. Smith did recover, and scored two tries.Mayhew also has a very impressive moustache, no doubt part of his Movember effort.On a side note, this was Newcastle coach Dean Richards’ first game back against his old club, from which he was famously banned following Bloodgate in 2009. The irony was that Tom Williams, who was very much involved with that whole controversy, scored the first try of the game.“I couldn’t give a toss who scored the first try,” insisted Richards afterwards.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Based on these concepts, the decision is made to concentrate the economic resources of the project in order to obtain a finished and consolidated project in its external spaces, on the contrary, it is decided to deliver the interior of the departments as a “grossly habitable work”. Users will be responsible for completing the completion works inside their homes. The family will receive a capital asset in which they can invest, without affecting the whole. It would achieve a successful consolidation of the environment, valorizing the neighborhood and building better conditions for the development of social capital. (Arriagada, 2002)Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldSave this picture!© José MirandaThis social housing project is the result of a public competition developed in 2007, commissioned by the Municipality of La Reina in Santiago. The competition sought to find a permanent housing solution for 151 families in the commune.Save this picture!© José MirandaSave this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldSave this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldAs part of the Housing Solidarity Fund II Program of the Housing Policy Division of MINVU (Chilean Ministry of Housing and Urbanism), it is intended for the housing needs of families included in the 40% of households with the greatest vulnerability, and consequently the subsidy that the State gives to families, should constitute a social investment that transforms housing into a capital asset that allows social mobility of families. The objective of the project is to consolidate housing as a capital, a heritage and, ultimately, a durable and tradable good.Save this picture!DetailThe most inclusive cities are built through socially integrated neighborhoods, and having a quality urban land will guarantee the integration and social inclusion of 151 families that have always belonged to La Reina commune. The project is located on land owned by the Municipality, which although it has very good connectivity and value in terms of land, presents 2 conditions that were decisive in the decision making of the project; a vertical drop of 5 meters, between Las Perdices street and the land, which also has landfills of uncontrolled material, and the existence of a high voltage line, which generates a strip of protection, which prevents the construction of a large part of the land.We set out to transform these externalities, considered negative from the terrain, into positive aspects that were capable of delivering identity and character of the project.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldSave this picture!Housing PlanSave this picture!© José MirandaBecause of the slope and the existing fillings, it is proposed to work with stone gabion walls, which besides being a solution in structural terms such as containment of the land, will be the elements that will give the identity to structure. Usually this typology of projects does not have the resources to maintain green areas, and these are transformed into large tracts of land.

Yew Street House is a traditional Vancouver house that was renovated to suit aging in place. The project was executed as a collaboration between Vancouver design firm Campos Studio and Toronto based industrial designer Tom Chung. Yew House is situated on a small corner lot in Kitsilano, one Vancouver’s original working class neighbourhoods. Originally built in 1907, the house underwent a patchwork of renovations and in the 1970’s most of its land was sold off to accommodate a neighbouring development. Due to the sale of this land it is now impossible to build a new house on the lot. Therefore, the plan became to upgrade the existing house by gutting it down to the studs, reinsulating and seismically upgrading the shell.Save this picture!© Conrad BrownHaving raised their family in this walkable neighbourhood the owners wanted to find a way to renovate the house to suit their transition to being semi-retired empty nesters and through retirement to aging in place. The plan became to create a bright modern open loft style living area with an unobtrusive and private guest area for visiting children and friends. The previous attic den was converted into a master bedroom and ensuite loft with hidden storage while the ground floor bedrooms are now a self-sufficient guest area connected to the main living space through a concealed door in the kitchen millwork. The main floor was designed to be convertible to one level living by anticipating the eventual conversion of the TV room and powder room into a master bedroom so that the couple could age in place.Save this picture!© Conrad BrownFinishes were kept hardwearing and timeless throughout. The floors, including the stairs, are European white oak. The millwork is a combination of Oak and Baltic Birch. The ceiling was braced with black metal turnbuckles which echoed the black metal screens and metalwork. During the demolition, an original fire place was discovered hidden behind drywall. It was restored and helps to define the dining and living areas. The project includes a number of custom lights by Tom Chung while the furniture is a mixture of client owned vintage pieces and contemporary design pieces.Save this picture!© Conrad BrownProject gallerySee allShow lessDenning House at Stanford University / Ennead ArchitectsSelected ProjectsUNIBRA IBGM / Hanazaki PaisagismoSelected Projects Share Canada Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/915796/yew-house-campos-studio-plus-tom-chung-studio Clipboard Save this picture!© Conrad Brown+ 17Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/915796/yew-house-campos-studio-plus-tom-chung-studio Clipboard Photographs “COPY”last_img read more

Commission on Unclaimed Assets seeks feedback from charity sector

It hopes to be able to invest “several hundred million pounds” in the voluntary and community sector.At this stage though it needs to ensure that it understands the sectors’ investment and support needs. This, it argues, will help it in its efforts to fight off rival claims to the unclaimed assets such as using it to pay off the pensions gap, but also to make sure it gets it right if it does secure the right to use the unclaimed assets.
