GOJI, the peer-to-peer investment manager, has reported a six per cent net return for its Diversified Lending Bond.
Launched in January last year, the bond was targeting a return of five per cent after fees over a one or three-year term.
Over the past 12 months the bond has invested in more than 1,200 loans, spreading risk across various direct lending partners and sectors of the economy, including funding for small businesses, universities and renewable energy projects.
Goji said the bond, which is available in an Innovative Finance ISA wrapper, provides an opportunity for advisers to support their clients in achieving their goals, without taking on substantially more risk.
Goji has been stepping up its focus on advisers ahead of ISA season, having recently launched an advisory board with two respected wealth management industry names.
It claims advisers are starting to embrace direct lending as an asset class.
