US & UK leaders of the surging peer-to-peer loan sector make group effort to share critical investment insights with novice investors.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2015 -- One month before many of these execs touch down in New York for the LendIt USA conference on April 13-15, 2015 at the Marriott Marquis in NYC, thirty high-level peer-to-peer lending executives and thought leaders converged for a roundtable interview with TheLendingMag Media Group in efforts to bolster awareness of the emerging alternative lending market and help new investors. Among the 30 interviewees are Aaron Vermut (CEO of Prosper Marketplace), Charles Moldow (General Partner at Foundation Capital), Peter Renton (Founder of Lend Academy Media), Giles Andrews (CEO of Zopa Ltd.), Dara Albright (Co-founder of LendIt Conference), Graham Wellesley (Executive Chairman of Wellesley & Co.) & Graeme Marshall (CEO of FundingKnight).
Warren Lee, Editor-In-Chief of The Lending Mag was quoted as saying, "To have 30 extremely busy and influential people take the time to help new investors understand the peer-to-peer lending investment platform better is very impressive. It shows the mindset difference between traditional bankers and the peer-to-peer lending platforms. They are more accessible, more willing to serve the needs of the consumer. I think there's no doubt that P2P lending will continue pushing it's way into the forefront of mainstream America's attention. We've seen a boon in popularity and awareness in the sector ever since LendingClub's wildly successful IPO in December of 2014."
In the never-been-done-before roundtable interview, The Lending Mag interviewed some of the most respected and recognized financial minds within the peer-to-peer finance community.
