Hestarted his career at GE Capital before moving to NatWest, Allianz and finally RBS Group. Having spent spent 15 years in the SME finance industry he understands the challenges inside and out. He was very kind in answering a few questions about his company. KV: Please share how the concept for Assetz came about. Who had the idea to get into P2P? The company has been around since 1999 so adding P2P appears to be a natural expansion for the business. Andrew Holgate: The three original directors of AC, Stuart Law, David Penston and Andrew Holgate, wanted to move into this sector. Stuarts Assetz Group, which is the UKs leading buy-to-let broker, had the investor base that it had built up since 1999, while David and Andrew had the banking experience. Very quickly from a business idea Chris Mellish joined the team as CTO. He had written software for another large platform and was an ideal choice for us. Soon after that, Paul Moore joined as Chairman. The 5 founders all had an interest in the sector but believed it could be done better. We believe we have one of the best boards in the sector. KV: What are some statistics as to the range of size of loans? Number of investors per loan? Andrew Holgate: We have lent from 35k to 1.5m, but the average loan is 200k to 300k in size. We have just over 1900 lenders registered to us and the average investment per loan is around 750. Not all investors go into every loan but they pick and choose in order to spread the risk. Our smallest investment has been 20 and the largest over 600,000. KV: All loans are asset backed.

Eid-al-Adha Celebration in the United Kingdom
This festival also marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Today Muslims all over the world who can afford it , sacrifice a sheep (sometimes a goat) as a reminder of Ibrahims obedience to Allah. In Britain, the animal has to be killed at a slaughterhouse. They share out the meat among family, friends and the poor, who each get a third share. Eid usually starts with Muslims going to the Mosque for prayers, dressed in their best clothes, and thanking Allah for all the blessings they have received. It is also a time when they visit family and friends as well as offering presents. At Eid it is obligatory to give a set amount of money to charity to be used to help poor people buy new clothes and food so they too can celebrate. Initiatives to improve the quality of life or opportunities in Muslim communities around the United Kingdom may be launched at Eid-al-Adha. Some mosques also hold study days or lectures on aspects of Islam and Islamic history. Eid-al-Adha is not a bank holiday in the UK. Mosques are likely to be busy and this may lead to some traffic congestion. Some Muslims choose to take one or more days of annual leave at this time.
