OurMoneyMarket is a place to borrow or invest money. You can invest in loans like a bank does or borrow to buy a car, go on holiday, consolidate debts, pay for a wedding, whatever it is that you need!
By dealing directly with each other, instead of via a traditional financial intermediary, borrowers can get lower rates and investors earn competitive returns. It’s quite simply a better deal for all. This is our money market.
OurMoneyMarket assigns a grade (from A+ to D) to each loan based on its evaluation of the credit worthiness of a borrower and their ability to pay back the loan. The lowest interest rates are assigned to the least risky grades, which reflect the potentially lower loss rates (lower probability of loans defaulting) and lower volatility in returns.
Flexibility & ChoiceInvest the way you want to invest. Whether that means “handpicking” each loan you would like to invest in or simply picking the loan grade and term of your investment and leaving us to do the rest, you decide.
OurMoneyMarket gives you control over your investments and lets you invest the way you want to invest. You can manually select each loan you would like to include in your portfolio, or simply use our ‘Quick Invest’ option. Quick Invest lets you simply state the amount and term you would like to invest for, and based on this OurMoneyMarket will propose three loan portfolio options for you (Conservative, Balanced and High-Yield) that vary in risk and return.
DiversificationReduce your portfolio risk and volatility in your returns by diversifying your investment across multiple loans with as little as $50 in Loan Units linked to any single loan.
At OurMoneyMarket you invest in Loan Units to fund loans. Instead of investing in Loan Units all linked to one loan, you can invest in portions of loans, with as little as $50 in Loan Units linked to any single loan. By investing small portions in Loan Units of equal size that correspond to different borrowers’ loans, you can diversify your portfolio and reduce the impact of any single loan loss.
Regular Cash FlowFixed principal and interest repayments means you receive regular cash flow that can be automatically reinvested or withdrawn.
A regular fixed income stream sourced from an alternative asset class. What’s more using OurMoneyMarket’s ‘Auto-Invest’ tool you can passively manage your portfolio by reinvesting principle and/or interest into Loan Units linked to new loans that match your credit risk appetite and investment criteria.

Marketplace lending is an alternative way to borrow compared to taking out finance with traditional lenders like banks. With OurMoneyMarket, the application process is not dissimilar to the banks, albeit, its 100% online. Following approval, it’s the funding process that is perhaps a little different.
This is where the investors come into play. Investors can be everyday people or large wholesale investors, each needing to invest a minimum of $50 into a single loan. The idea is that a group of people or investors pool their money together to lend to a single borrower. Pretty cool huh?
Like traditional lenders, marketplace lenders are responsible for assessing loan applications and either approving/declining the applicant for a personal loan. Perhaps different to traditional lenders, however, is that many marketplace lenders tailor their interest rates for a borrower. Borrowers with a strong track record of having credit and making all their repayments on time often receive low rates. On the flip side, borrowers with recently improved repayment performance may be given a second chance.
The key to remember is that OurMoneyMarket provides borrowers and investors with an alternative avenue to achieve their goals. For borrowers, OurMoneyMarket may be able to provide rates significantly lower than the banks. Equally, OurMoneyMarket may be able to provide finance to people who may otherwise fall outside of a traditional lender’s credit policy. For investors, particularly fixed-income investors, investing in personal loans can lower the overall volatility of an investment portfolio. In addition, this asset class provides a regular cash flow which can either be withdrawn or reinvested into more loans!
The development of marketplace lending both domestically and globally is largely due to advancements in technology. Marketplace lending platforms are often sophisticated, catering for risk-based pricing to determine rates and fractionalized investments into loans. These advancements have certainly helped to open the loan market which has traditionally been dominated by the banks.
