The Most Comprehensive Study On Marketplace Lending Kicks Off


A new research study recently kicked off that will delve into the p2p lending and marketplace lending industry. With the industry maturing it’s important to take a look at where we are at today. Lend Academy and several other organizations have partnered to help make the most comprehensive survey ever on marketplace lending a success. We are asking all companies in the industry to participate by using the links below.

The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance at Cambridge Judge Business School and the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Chicago Booth School of Business are heading up the survey titled 2015 Americas Alternative Finance Benchmarking Survey. The study kicked off just last month and will conclude on November 10th

Their final database contains 800 companies in this industry. The study will also include research on crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lending (marketplace lending) and other forms of alternative finance across North, Central and South America. The results of the survey will be published early 2016.

How can your company participate?

All crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lending and other alternative finance providers, operating in North, Central and South America, are invited to contribute to the benchmarking survey below. We urge everyone to take part in what will be the broadest survey ever conducted in this industry.
