Of Sharing, Lending And Alternative Funding


“The sharing economy in the UK is surging, attracting investment and providing budding entrepreneurs with a platform to take great ideas out to the population.,” says The Director magazine.

Well, we have to say that here at Money&Co., we (ahem) share that sentiment.

The “sharing economy” includes financial crowdfunding (equity and loan financing – such as the peer-to-peer[P2P] loans on this platform) project crowdfunding (the value of which some within the EU would like to tax) and other forms of collective economic activity.


The Director continues: “This nascent sector was already worth £500m in revenues in 2014 and could explode to reach £9bn a year, according to a report from PwC.”

The full Director article is available here, and the PWC report can be found here.
