Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
After the previous week was dominated by Lending Club, Prosper was certainly visible in the news this week. They put out a press release announcing improved returns for investors, they wrote a blog post (and sent an email) by their head of risk management in response to the current stock market turmoil and finally they announced a webinar for next week. These and links to all the other main news of the week are below.
