What is BondMason?

BondMason is the UK's go-to direct lending service exclusively for investors and their advisors.

  1. BondMason Core: Diversified portfolio of loan investments that enables investors the opportunity to target an average net return of 6% p.a. 

Clients can purchase Receivables (cash receipts) that are individually linked to underlying loans from approved P2P and Direct Lending partners.

Is there a minimum I can invest?

BondMason Core: The minimum amount to open an account is £5,000.

 

What happens to my money, and how is it protected?

BondMason Core: your money is held in a segregated client bank account with Barclays and is ring-fenced from our own funds.

Thereafter, your money is used to purchase Receivables.  Each Receivable is assigned a unique reference code in our transaction database; and these records are backed up in four different locations.

Who is a typical BondMason client?

BondMason clients range from individuals investing as little as £5,000 through to companies and institutions investing significantly more. We are unable to provide advice on your individual circumstances; please seek advice from your financial advisor to determine whether BondMason may be suitable for you.

At present, we are unable to accept US based investors / taxpayers but please contact us as this policy may change in the future.

How can I set up an account?

It is quick and easy to create a BondMason account. Simply click on the 'Get Started' link at the top of the page. Once you have completed our simple online sign-up form (make sure you have either your passport number or driving licence to hand), we will conduct our identity verification checks. These checks can take 1-3 business days. 

We will send you email confirmation when the identify verification checks have been completed. You may then log in to your dashboard to select BondMason Core and transfer your opening investment. 

 

 

What is a Receivable?

A Receivable is a set of cash flows. Purchasing a receivable means that a buyer is able to access a set of cash flows from the seller of the Receivable.

For example: a seller may sell a Receivable for £100 on January 1st, which entitles the buyer to a cash flow of £108 on December 31st. This gives the buyer access to an 8% p.a. return.
