ORCA, in association with Peer2Peer Finance News, is hosting a peer-to-peer lending challenge for investors and industry players.
The P2P investment aggregator has launched a quiz designed to test P2P knowledge, with prizes for the top three winners.
The prizes are as follows:
1st place: £100 John Lewis voucher, Peer2Peer Finance News magazine subscription and engraved trophy
2nd place: Amazon Echo Dot and Peer2Peer Finance News magazine subscription and engraved silver medal
3rd place: Regency Hamper and Peer2Peer Finance News magazine subscription and engraved bronze medal
Click here to take the quiz and test your P2P knowledge! Results will be hosted on the UK P2P Lending Knowledge Leaderboard where investors can see how their performance stacks up against other investors in the market. The quiz will run until 31 July 2018.
“Investing is serious stuff,” said Orca co-founder Jordan Stodart.
“From the start, investors have been studying markets, trying to find an edge to earn additional returns and to reduce risk.
“There’s a mass of information to consume. For the fun of it, let’s put knowledge to the test. Think University Challenge meets local pub quiz, and this is somewhere in between.
“While it is a bit of fun, the quiz does also highlight the importance of research in this often-complex asset class. Without proper due diligence, you may leave yourself exposed to unnecessary risks.”
Orca started life as a P2P research and analytics firm, before announcing in November last year that it was launching an investment platform. Its proposition automatically builds portfolios of P2P investments across more than 50 per cent of the market, including major lenders such as Lending Works and Assetz Capital.
P2P investment insight remains a key feature of the platform, accessible through their free analytics service and industry commentary.
