Again, p2p lending should always be compared other options. A well managed p2p portfolio should yield 11%. 

 

P2P is a relatively safe investment with high yield.

This is advise of finanical advisor to a baby boomer. The advice is sound.

 

As would be expected, the advice is trying to fund a high yield investment for a retired person.

 

That advise might include p2p lending if that retired person is an accredated investor and who put money through a professional managed firm who is doing p2p loans. 

 

Someone 80 old is not going to want to do daily loan picking or active management.

 

This shows the massive problem for baby boomers of erosion of capital and yield in this low interest envirnment.
