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.
Probably the most important article of this week was the one on Daily Finance, the widely read site owned by AOL. It was a well researched article that included comments from Joseph Toms, the Chief Investment Officer at Prosper. But the most interesting article of the week from my perspective was the interview with Rebecca Lynn on Xconomy. Ms Lynn is a partner with Morgenthaler Ventures, a venture capital firm that has invested in Lending Club, and she is also on Lending Club’s board. She gave her perspective on why she thinks Lending Club has such great potential. Enjoy your weekend.
