Octopus Choice – a variable 4% to 5% per annum, no fixed term

Tired of measly returns on cash? Happy to take some risk? Octopus Choice could be an answer. Earn higher interest – invest alongside Octopus in loans backed by bricks and mortar. There is no fixed term (although instant access is not guaranteed). 

Important: The information on this website is for experienced investors. It is not advice nor a research or personal recommendation to invest. If you’re unsure, please seek advice. Investments are for the long term. They are high risk and illiquid and can fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you invest.

Why consider investing?

  • Targets a variable rate of around 4% paid out every month (not guaranteed)
  • Invest from £5,000 to £2 million
  • Invest your own or your company's money 
  • Loans secured against bricks and mortar – in case of default, you have first charge on the assets 
  • No fixed term – you can ask to withdraw the money at any time but instant access is not guaranteed
  • Low loan to value – around 62% on average and maximum 76% 
  • Diversification – Octopus aims to spread your money across a minimum of 10 loans

What to watch out for?

Your actual return could be higher or lower, depending on how much and when you invest, and how the loans in your portfolio perform. All interest is paid gross – the tax due depends on circumstances and may change in future.

Octopus Choice is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Neither your capital nor interest are guaranteed, so you could get back less than you invest. You should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. You can ask to withdraw your money at any time, however Octopus cannot guarantee instant access.
