During the week I share the latest marketplace lending news on Twitter as it happens. Then every Saturday I take the most interesting news items and blog posts from the past week and share them here.
The biggest news of the week was clearly the Lending Club deal with Alibaba – this announcement was covered by pretty much every major publication and caused a nice spike in the Lending Club stock price.
