LendIt is Heading to Shanghai Next Month

LendIt-Shanghai-Bund-Summit-banner1 - small

The LendIt team is partnering with the Shanghai Finance Institute to produce a p2p lending conference in China next month. Called the Bund Summit 2014 it will be held in Shanghai on July 19-20 at The Peninsula Hotel. You can read more about it on our LendIt Shanghai page here. For Chinese speakers, here is the Chinese language version of the site.

This has been quite the learning experience for the LendIt team but we are very excited at the way the program is coming together. We have secured many high profile speakers including:

  • Former Vice Chairman of the People’s Bank of China (PBoC)
  • Executive Vice President of China Investment Corporation
  • President of China’s largest insurance company
  • Senior executives from Baidu and Alibaba

There will, of course, also be leaders of many of the major p2p lending companies presenting such as CreditEase, Lufax and PPDAI. I will also be making the trip along with my fellow LendIt co-founder Jason Jones who has been instrumental in putting this conference together.

We have covered the Chinese p2p lending market here on Lend Academy before. It is one of the most vibrant and interesting markets in the world and I think there is a lot we can learn from their experience. While p2p in China has certainly had its challenges in recent months in many ways the market there is more developed and more competitive than in the US or even the UK.

I am looking forward to learning more when I attend the Bund Summit next month. If you are interested in joining me you can find out more details and register for the conference here. I hope to see some of you in Shanghai in July.

I follow your website and learnt a lot about P2P marketplace through the lendit conference videos. You are doing a great job of educating people about the industry and its business model. Would you be doing The Shanghai Summit in 2015 as well? I am at China Europe International Business School and would be keen to attend it.
