FOLK2FOLK is the evolution of a business practice that dates back hundreds of years. With the first private mortgage recorded in the 1600s, it’s a method of local financial transaction that pre-dates the traditional banks and building societies.

Today’s technology has evolved this practise into the modern peer-to-peer sector, which is now authorised and regulated by the FCA.
