Key Factors for Marketplace Lending in 2017

PricewaterhouseCoopers’ DeNovo team says transparency, credibility and evolving business models will be key factors for marketplace lending in 2017; increased disclosures and new solutions for data analytics are expected to help transparency while also improving confidence and credibility; new regulations will also be an important factor for the landscape overall, potentially creating new business requirements while also validating funding sources; the DeNovo team also cites potentially lower investment taxes from House Speaker Paul Ryan’s “A Better Way” plan and expansion to broader lending categories as important for the new year; in 2017 funding disbursement is also expected to come from a wider range of sources with securitization in the lead; originations overall in 2016 are down 4.9% through September at $7.8 billion versus $8.2 billion in 2015 while securitizations have increased by 80% at $5.4 billion versus $3.0 billion in 2015 according to Orchard.  Source
