Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
We have an interesting cross section of articles this week. I would like to highlight the Prosper review by Wealth Pilgrim – I think that is the most detailed review of Prosper that I have read. Another interesting one was the Reuter’s blog post on the regulatory history of Lending Club and Prosper. While the historical account is not 100% accurate, there are some interesting ideas about the future regulatory environment for p2p lending. Enjoy your weekend.
