Lending Times covers the peer-to-peer (p2p), marketplace and in general the alternative lending market. We provide a daily news digest and, a few times a week, an analysis piece usually about an aspect of this industry. Analysis topics include interesting business models, crowdlending and crowdfunding real-estate, unique originators, potential sources of venture capital and securitization , useful service and products providers to the space and more. Our content is most relevant to the operators of the industry and not the borrowers. We cover Lending Club, Prosper, Avant, SoFi, Funding Circle, OnDeck, Zopa and more.
