Wellesley & Co

Working with Wellesley & Co from launch in September 2013 we developed and expanded the digital marketing channel as a source of retail investor deposits and bridging loan enquiries.


With a particular focus on the 44+ age group we created bold and engaging search and display campaigns to highlight the attractive interest rates and innovative product.


We undercut CPA targets by nearly 50%, achieving a cost of fund through advertising of 2.33% and delivering for 2015 an eye watering total of £22.6m in retail deposits.


Wellesley & Co went on to become the UK’s fastest growing P2P lender in the UK that year.
