The FeelGood Money® company
In 2005 we built the first ever peer-to-peer (P2P) lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. Since then we've helped hundreds of thousands of customers take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust. In 2020, we started a new chapter in our journey, officially launching Zopa Bank alongside our P2P business. The reason for doing this was simple: to provide even more ways to empower our customers to FeelGood about money.
Both our bank and P2P business are inspired by our customers’ real-life stories. Your stories fuel our mission to help people FeelGood about money. To make money fairer – for everyone. To make managing money easy. And to make a real difference when the unexpected happens. This is what we stand for.
- You get a fair deal as standard. At Zopa there are no catches like offers only for new customers. Our products are built so that we win when you win.
- Managing your money is no sweat. With handy tools to help you get stuff done and helpful people to talk to when you need to. Easy.
- We go beyond ‘good enough’. We listen to what our customers want and change with their needs. We are built so we can evolve easily and use the latest tech to give you a great experience.
We’re on a mission to make money Feel Good, with products designed to do Real Good.
"Zopa plans to create a bank with no hidden charges or confusing interest rates."
We’re regulated by these authorities
Financial Conduct Authority
In 2014 consumer credit organisations – including p2p – began to be regulated by the FCA (previously we were regulated by the Office of Fair Trading). We welcomed this as Zopa, along with Ratesetter and Funding Circle, had lobbied the government for more regulation in our sector to help protect consumers. Since December 2018, we’re also regulated by the FCA as a bank.
Prudential Regulation Authority
We also adhere to the requirements set by the PRA, one of the successors of the Financial Services Authority (FSA). It's operated by the Bank of England and is designed to ensure the stability of UK financial system.
