Peer-to-peer or marketplace lending has become one of the phenomena of the early 21st century, with service providers like eBay, Uber and Airbnb revolutionising the way business is done in their respective spheres.
The disintermediation of industries like travel and retail forced the incumbents to rethink their own strategies to stay alive.
The P2P Threat to Retail Banking undertakes a study of the state of marketplace lending globally, with case studies and analysis of conditions in key markets worldwide, including the US, the UK and China, the global leaders in marketplace lending, as well as platforms of note in Australia, Argentina, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and other key markets in Europe and the Middle East.
It considers how the p2p lending platforms are beginning to reframe the debate somewhat, having originally positioned themselves in opposition to the banks.
The P2P Threat to Retail Banking looks at the growth rates, regulatory conditions and potential for expansion in marketplace lending as well as explaining the key risks, threats and opportunities for the fledgling industry and why it is so important for banks to react before it is too late.
