Marketplace Lending Performance Transparency

Marketplace lending platforms have offered investors a viable alternative for fixed income market returns however their disclosures and reporting standards are continuing to evolve; while these disclosures can vary by platform, Rupert Taylor from AltFi says lenders should consistently ensure that there is alignment between investors and originators, also noting that, “Lenders should seek platforms that can demonstrate that their overriding motivation is to originate loans at an interest rate that adequately compensates for the risk of default.”; appropriately assessing a platform’s returns is important for investors and Rupert Taylor advocates for increased demand from investors for platform performance transparency.  Source
