On Wednesday, August 26 at 1 p.m. EST, Alex Johnson, Senior Analyst, Credit Advisory Service, will host an informative hour-long webinar on the disruptive potential of marketplace lending (also known as peer-to-peer lending).

We’ve heard about the astronomical success of marketplace lending in the United States for several years now. We’ve heard that platforms like Propser and Lending Club and OnDeck Capital will fundamentally change the way that loans are acquired, originated, and serviced.

But is that actually true?

This webinar will place the success of these new alternative lenders in a broader context that will help traditional financial institutions (FIs) understand exactly how these new platforms are disrupting the industry and how they can and should respond.

Key Points of the Webinar:

  • An overview of the marketplace lending space and its relative position in the overall U.S. consumer credit market

  • An explanation of how marketplace lending platforms work

  • Speculation on the future of marketplace lending
  • Recommendations on how traditional FIs can learn from and respond to marketplace lenders
