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.
I am back in Denver now and slowly recovering from jetlag after the long trip from Sydney. Not a whole lot to report in this holiday shortened week. But in South Africa it was a big week for p2p lending with the launch of Rainfin, the first p2p lender in that country. The most interesting piece of the week in my opinion was the interview with Renaud Laplanche, CEO of Lending Club, by Zack Miller of Tradestreaming. Laplanche certainly painted an interesting picture of the future of p2p lending and Lending Club. Enjoy your weekend.
