I have seen that some of the people on here dealing shares etc however I have discovered another means of making some money.
Both of these below have been recommended to me by a friend who has been using them for some time.
The first is ZOPA - here you can lend money to individuals and set the interest rate that you want. Recommendation is to lend £10/per individual to minimize your exposure to
bad debts although you can of course lend more.
The second is Funding Cirle - here you lend money to businesses and some of these are guaranteed by Directors - again you set how much you wish to loan and the interest rate you want. Another good feature here is you can sell you loan to other lenders if you need to get the money back sooner.
Loan Requests from Businesses, Lend to Small Businesses - Funding Circle
Not really gambling I admit, but at these times when the best ISA around is only 3% these offer some good returns if you have some spare cash that you can lend. Hope this info is of use to some of the members on here.
