Marketplace Lending 2016

Overview

Peer-to-peer, or P2P, lending is being seen as an alternative way of banking, with the objective of promoting financial inclusion; the current banking system is seen to have failed to reach out to millions who live in the remotest parts of India. With the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) releasing a paper on P2P lending, the regulatory framework for the growth of the sector is now an important point of discussion.

Marketplace/P2P lending is a global phenomenon and now it is taking roots in India as well. Although nascent, the potential benefits that P2P lending promises to various stakeholders are immense. To explore these opportunities and dissect the challenges of this sector, Mint brought together banks, investors, platforms and various service providers at the 1st Mint Marketplace Lending Summit. Mint’s Marketplace Lending Summit provided a platform for various stakeholders to debate issues facing the latest innovation in banking
