Session Description

Over the first quarter of 2016, heightened volatility has impacted the global markets and investors have had higher expectations on purchasing lenders’ assets. As a result, marketplace lenders have increasingly needed to find ways to diversify their funding sources and build relationships with strategic capital providers over the long term.

Key Learnings:

  • How marketplace lenders have tapped into newer, different funding sources beyond institutional investors and the rationale for these relationships
  • How investors of different sizes and types view the industry and their relationships with marketplace lenders, especially those on the consumer lending side
  • How the market environment has impacted funding activity and strategy over the course of the year
  • What's ahead? The outlook for capital sources for marketplace lenders
