How it all started

My initial investment (made 20 January 2019) totalled £9,000; split across six different P2P lending platforms:

I made sure that each investment was sufficient to take advantage of the cashback offers available at the time. Provided the platforms experience no issues, I will receive £530 cashback (5.9% of my investment) which partially offsets the associated investment risk and provides an excellent opportunity to earn boosted first year returns.

I have curated a full list of current P2P cashback offers – if you are going to invest, it is definitely worth taking advantage. Generally, most providers will credit this cashback to your account after a period of one year, though some offer earlier payment terms (e.g. Kuflink terms state that cashback is paid within 21 working days).

The chart below illustrates how my P2P investment portfolio has fared.
