Lend Academy Article: 2017 Will Be a Huge Year for Bank Partnerships

LendIt’s Jason Jones writes about the marketplace lending opportunity for bank partnerships in a Lend Academy article; in 2016, many marketplace lenders reported partnerships with banks, exemplifying this new opportunity; three main types of partnerships have been prevalent including bank-fintech-bank (BFB), fintech-fintech-bank (FFB) and bank-fintech-fintech (BFF); co-branding or white labeling has also been a factor in the partnerships; some traditional banks have chosen to take the full cost of developing their own online lending platform including, Goldman Sachs and PingAn, however many banks are finding partnerships more cost efficient; LendIt’s bank partnerships webinar on Wednesday will highlight this trend.  Source
