Investing with Octopus Choice

Octopus Choice is a peer-to-peer platform. We put your money to work by lending it to lots of different borrowers, securing these loans against property. The interest they pay then combines to give you a personal rate.

Remember, Octopus Choice puts your capital at risk. You may get back less than you invest. You should understand the risks before investing.


Variable interest of 4% per year, paid monthly. You can even include it within your Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA), too.

Your money is at risk

Octopus Choice invests your money in loans to borrowers. We can't guarantee investors will get all of their capital back, or earn all of their interest.


All loans are secured against a property, which can be sold if a borrower can't repay the loan.

Property market exposure

If a property needs to be sold, the amount recovered could be affected by a downturn in the property market.


The first 5% of every Octopus Choice loan is covered by First Loss, consisting of Octopus and an institutional investor. You'll get your money back before First Loss and earn your interest first too.

Instant access isn't guaranteed

Withdrawing means selling your investments to other investors. We'll aim to give you access quickly, but we can't make any guarantees.


All loans are sourced by Octopus Real Estate, an experienced lender that has lent nearly £4 billion since 2009.

Your investment is not protected by the FSCS

Peer-to-Peer lending is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Your capital and interest are at risk.
