BondMason 6-point Code of Ethics
We understand the importance of acting as a careful custodian of our clients' money - your money. We operate with a strict Code of Ethics when conducting our business activities, to ensure our clients best interests are met:
We put our clients interests first
In the event of a potential conflict of interests, our clients interests will take priority over our own.
We don't invest in inappropriate or usurious loans or investments
We don't invest in loans with an APR above 20% p.a. All our loans are hand picked and approved by a member of the BondMason team.
We adopt best practices with regard to legal and regulatory operating framework.
Our legal framework has been drafted by a veteran of the P2P industry and member of the P2PFA (peer-to-peer finance association). In addition, we are in regular dialogue with the FCA, starting in March 2015, about our operating framework, as well as to encourage appropriate regulation and operating practices across the peer-to-peer industry. In April 2015 we were one of the first companies accepted onto the FCA's Innovation Hub programme.
We have an open door policy for clients
Please feel free to contact us by email (invest@bondmason) and phone (01582 802 000) at any time; we aim to respond within 24-48 hours to any request.
We aim to protect client money by reducing risk, with a full audit trail of investments and the risk of any loss from investment is mitigated.
We have a Client Money account with Barclays, which keeps client money separate and segregated from our own money at all times. All investment records are backed up in 3 separate locations in the cloud as well as through hard copy print outs. We have a diligent process for approving P2P platforms and specific loans, please read our "How it works" page to discover more.
Be professional, and act with integrity in everything that we do
We aim to be professional, fair and transparent. Please contact us If you have any questions or concerns. All complaints are shared with the CEO immediately, and we aim to resolve all matters promptly.
