Funding Circle Exits Spain, Reinvests in Europe

Upon their acquisition of Zencap, Funding Circle took up operations in Germany, the Netherlands and Spain, though now you can remove Spain from that list; according to Ryan Weeks of AltFi, this was due in large part to a low quality pool of borrowers and limited understanding in Spain of P2P lending; in terms of their loan book this was only a fraction of global originations for Funding Circle; they will now be able to allocate more resources to Germany and the Netherlands where they are looking to increase their market share.  Source
