    Best thing to do with 3k 5th Sep 10 at 2:22 PM
    Afternoon all,

    I've been squirrelling away and have put 3k in the bank which at the moment is earning next to nothing in an HSBC savings account. I can be without it for a year, and would obviously like to get the best return I can on it. I've checked out the links in the main section of the site, but also came across the Funding Circle, which is like Zopa except that you lend to businesses. Anyone had any experience with it, or have any insight into the wisdom of putting some money into it?

    Their site is at fundingcircle.com

    Thanks
