Landbay is a UK Financial technology company that operates a peer-to-peer lending platform to allow institutions to fund residential buy-to-let mortgages.[1][2]

Company overview[edit]

Landbay was launched in 2014 as an online peer-to-peer lending platform where investors can invest in the United Kingdom's buy-to-let mortgage market. The business model matches investors' funds to buy-to-let mortgages, thus all loans are secured by residential real estate. [3][4] When the company launched, both Landbay worked with both individual and institutional lenders, however in 2019 Landbay stopped allowing individual investors to use its services and has since been institutionally funded only.[5][6]

As at February 2015 Landbay was the fastest growing peer-to-peer platform in the United Kingdom[7] and as of March 2015 the business was lending £2m per month.

The company was founded by John Goodall and Gray Stern.[8][9]

In March 2015 the business was named in the Everline Future 50 as one of the most disruptive startups in the UK.[10]

Landbay is a member of the P2P Finance Association.[11] Landbay is also a member of the Council of Mortgage Lenders.[citation needed]

Landbay is regulated by the FCA Financial Conduct Authority.[12]
