Alternative Lending : Market Analysis Report Preview

The growth of the global Alternative Lending market is mainly being driven by growing advancements in technology that is encouraging potential consumers and existing players to make quick decisions. The low cost of operations is also supporting the growth of this market in comparison to the growth rate of conventional money lending institutions.

Additionally, increasing student population is also propelling the global P2P lending market as a majority of the students seek loans at cheaper interest rates than what is offered by traditional money lenders. However, the risk of investors losing their money due to defaults on repayment is likely to have a severe impact on the growth of this market.

Alternate Lending Major Business Models

Three models are emerging in online lending. Players such OnDeck and Kabbage are using their own balance sheet; they are raising capital from institutional investors, including hedge funds, and using proprietary risk scoring models that include non‐traditional data to decision loans for small business owners. Peer-to-peer platforms such as Lending Club, Prosper, and Funding Circle are connecting capital from institutional and retail investors with prime and sub‐prime quality borrowers. Lender‐agnostic marketplaces such as Fundera and Biz2Credit provide online marketplaces which connect borrowers with a range of traditional and alternative lenders.
