How it works
On the one hand you have low bank interest rates, which means people struggle to reach their financial goals. Investing in stocks and shares can be complicated and the stock market volatile so your shares can go up and down in value frequently.
On the other hand, you have a shortage of good quality housing and property developers struggling to get funding from the banks.
That’s where we come in.
Via Money Mog you can pool resources with other lots of other investors and lend directly to developers helping them to build houses whilst helping yourself to grow your funds and reach your financial goals sooner.
You must be aware that this is an investment, not a savings account. But if you are prepared to take more of a risk, you can earn significantly higher returns than with a savings account (average bank savings account was 1.18% in 2018*) or with a Cash ISA (Average rate Nov 2018: 1.29%**).
Let’s get started
Opening an account with us is easy too, but before you do you’ll need to take a simple test to show that you understand the risks involved. This test should only take a few minutes and is only applicable once the full investment site goes live and we are able to take payments, so watch this space.
Opening a Money Mog account
It’s really easy and should take just a few minutes, but don’t forget to take our test when the full investment site goes live.
Tax free investing
If you are a UK taxpayer it may make sense to choose the Innovative Finance ISA option so that your interest will be tax-free.
Take the eligibility test
It’s a legal requirement that you pass this test to show that you understand the risks involved before we can allow you to invest.
Top up your Money Mog wallet
Set up a monthly standing order for a minimum of £50. If you want to invest more money at any time, go to settings and select the top up function in your customer dashboard.
We diversify your investment
Once your money has been received it will automatically be spread across various property backed secured loans. You will be able to see the status of all your investments in your investor dashboard.
Interest paid out twice a year
Your interest will be paid automatically into your nominated bank account on a bi-annual basis each 30th October and 30th April or the next working day if this falls on a weekend or a bank holiday.
