It has been a jam-packed week at QuidCycle with the launch of the new website and we are looking forward to a relaxing weekend and we hope you are as well. What better way to start our weekend off with an in incredible story of a committed woman who found herself well over her head with the amount of money she owed. The measures that she took to get herself back into the black are truly inspirational and proof for us all that whatever financial situation you find yourself in, there is hope on the horizon.
In last weeks’ articles, our blog highlighted two money masters – the heroic Hans-Werner Sinn and entrepreneurial Emma Sinclair. They both achieved incredible financial wins and were rewarded with our coveted Financial Hero title. However, this week we are turning the Financial Hero on its head and are going to present a Financial Villain, so that we can all take pointers from his greed – Jerome Kerviel!
We have an alternative present for you this Christmas! Instead of filling that stocking for that special someone with a candle or snuggly pair of socks, why not give them their first investment! On the surface, it may not be the present they have always dreamed of but allow a few months to past and they with see how a stocking-filler can turn into a wallet-filler!
The idea of typing in a few personal details to receive a loan in a matter of days used to be the dreams of financial lunatics. However, all praise to those lunatics because the UK is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with Peer-to-Peer (P2P) lending this year. Over the past decade we have seen the introduction of new platforms left, right and centre combined with an incredible growth that has really started to turn heads. One thing is for sure, P2P is here to stay and we couldn’t be happier with that fact.
