Peer-to-Peer Lending in the UK 2016-2018

| Source: Research and Markets

Dublin, Dec. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Peer-to-Peer Lending: UK" report to their offering.

Peer2Peer lending in the UK provides an up to date and independent analysis of the launch, growth and potential of peer-to-peer lending in the UK. It examines how this once anti-bank offering is linking with banks to fund and sell on loans.

Peer2peer lending is an increasingly popular way of financing projects, business ideas, and personal loans through small contributions from a large number of individuals, and the financial market.

Peer2peer lending is still new and often misunderstood. Regulators are looking a lot closer at the industry and individual platforms, with most platforms still not fully authorised. Peer to peer lending will stimulate change and make business and personal lending quicker, simpler and more transparent.

There is a real opportunity for collaboration between them and banks where they are not in competition with one another. A top peer2peer lender is planning to launch a peer2peerbank. Banks could buy lenders. A social lending platform is being launched.

By 2018 peer-to-peer lending in the UK could be worth over £5 billion, up from less than half a billion in 2013.

Not everything is as rosy as the industry cheerleaders may suggest, with several platforms closing, never opening or clearly designed to make quick money for owners. Over 50 platforms have closed or failed to launch in the UK. Over 50 platforms are active or preparing for launch, but only one in four are fully authorised by the FCA.
