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.
We have had a few new p2p lending bloggers emerge in the last month and you will see several stories from these newcomers below: Lucrative Lending, Lend Analyst and Lending Peers. I wish them well and I look forward to reading more contributions from them. My top article pick of the week was from Alchemy, the online magazine for SecondMarket. It talks about the changing face of p2p lending with more institutional investors coming on board (full disclosure: I was interviewed for this article). Enjoy your weekend.
