goPeer helps everyday Canadians to achieve financial freedom through Peer-to-Peer Lending
A little about goPeer
We are a 100% Canadian, Toronto-based organization that seeks to improve the financial opportunities to everyday Canadians.
We aspire to provide individuals with a better borrowing experience. We understand that sometimes unexpected expenses may arise, and banks are just not fast enough to deliver. We’re committed to the financial health of our members and strive to improve the Canadian lending market by offering swift, affordable loans.
In Canada, lending to individuals profit only the big guys – large banks and financial institutions. We want to modernize this archaic system and make these investments available to everyday Canadian investors. The loans offered through goPeer offer an attractive yield, have a low correlation to other asset classes, and most importantly they are accessible to everyone – not just the big guys. By using goPeer you contribute to shifting the balance of power from the large financial institutions to individual, everyday Canadians.
