Zopa Eyeing Secured Loans?

Zopa, who specializes in unsecured consumer loans may be looking to expand into secured loans, specifically the auto segment; the company sees a healthy level of demand but a generally poor consumer experience; Zopa’s Chief Marketing Officer Amy Miller stated, “People are getting poor deals in that area and end up paying significantly higher annual percentage rates than they would if they arranged their financing before going into a dealership.”; the company is also reportedly considering other loan terms, such as 18 month loans as well as a balloon payment loan.  Source
