Roundup of Social Lending News – November 26, 2011

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.

In this Thanksgiving week I would have expected things to be pretty quiet. But many of my fellow p2p lending bloggers had some really interesting stuff this week. Matthew from P2P Lending News reported on the launch of a new p2p lending service for small businesses and Michael from Nickel Steamroller had a great article on his evolution as a p2p investor. Another highlight was the excellent article from leading UK financial publication, the Financial Times. Hope you are enjoying the long weekend.
