    Do your loans have to be fixed? Reason I ask is if I set it at 7 years or 5 years and it is fixed this would mean I can’t pay off extra into the personal loan and secondly if I pay it off in say 2 yrs then penalty rates apply. Also what are your monthly fees etc

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for your question.

      Just to clarify, you’ve come through to, not Society One, we’re a financial comparison service, however I can still help you with your query. The interest rate that will be applied to your loan is fixed for your repayment term, which can be anywhere from one to five years. You will be charged a one-off establishment fee but there are no other fees charged on your loan. You are able to pay off your loan early and be charged no penalty.

      I hope this has helped.

      Hi Sean,

      Thanks for your question.

      Society One is a peer-to-peer lender and so offers a new way to get finance. It works by linking borrowers up with individual investors who agree to lend to you. This process is completely anonymous. The main thing to be aware of is that you are given a rate based on your credit position – Society One has five ‘grades’ of borrowers that is based on your Veda score, and your interest rate and establishment fee will be based on this loan amount. You can learn more about Society One and the way it works by clicking through to their site from the page above – just click the green ‘Go to Site’ button.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks for your question.

      You can make extra repayments at any time without penalty but there is no redraw facility available on this loan.

      Thanks for your question.

      The SocietyOne platform is currently open to Wholesale Clients and are working to include retail investors soon.

      If you would like to register your interest, please see this page.

      Should you be successful SocietyOne can send through a PDS and information about how they manage their risks.
