Overview – Saving Stream Review (Lendy)

My Saving Stream review here will be short and sweet, as after spending some time lending with Saving Stream (Lendy), I exited the platform very quickly because of defaults and very bad press they were getting. It wouldn’t be prudent to do a long Saving Stream (Lendy) review as I consider them a very high risk investment. 

Better options, in my opinion for similar lending exposure would be Funding Circle or Assetz Capital both of which I actively invest with and have good experience.

 

History

Saving Stream, now called Lendy, are one of the older (launched in 2013) Peer to Peer Lenders. Saving Stream started off reasonably well, however they quickly started to get many, many defaults which drove many of the retail investors away (including myself).
