How did you define the minimum lending for Zopa Core and Zopa Plus?
Updated 4 months ago
We've set a minimum lending limit to make sure that only a small proportion of your money is lent to a single borrower. This was determined by simulating different scenarios for borrower defaults against our current loan book. We found that a lender should have at least 100 microloans to maximize the chance of earning positive returns, therefore we have a £1,000 minimum investment amount which allows us to diversify your initial investment across at least that many loans when you get started.
