Six IFISAs that target returns above inflation
Inflation is expected to hit 8% in April, hitting savers and investors struggling to find anti-inflationary returns from traditional providers.
But look no further than Innovative Finance ISAs (IFISAs), which have consistently outperformed the stock market over the past four years, and some of which may even exceed the dreaded 8% figure.
So News Peer2Peer Finance has compiled a list of IFISA providers that aim to deliver inflation-beating returns this year.
This list is made up of vendors who specifically target eight percent or more in returns. This list does not include platforms that offer a range of target returns, where the bottom value is less than 8%. For example, this includes those who aim for returns between 5 and 12%, or those who offer targets “up to” a certain number like 10%.
Platforms that may offer investors the opportunity to achieve eight percent or more returns but do not meet these criteria include Abundance, ArchOver, CrowdProperty, Crowd2Fund, Crowdstacker, JustUs, Fund Ourselves, HNW Lending, LandlordInvest, Unbolted, Proplend , Share Credit , Shojin Property Partners and Tifosy.
Right here News Peer2Peer Finance lists IFISA providers that specifically target returns above eight percent.
