Roundup of Social Lending News – August 18, 2012

by Peter Renton on August 18, 2012

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.

The most interesting article of the week in my opinion was the Lending Club blog post. It is good to see Lending Club putting more effort into their blog after letting it languish for most of the past year. This article discusses research done by famous bond market guru Bill Gross and his opinion on where the bond and stock markets are heading – good news for p2p lending. We also have new offerings for investors coming for P2P Analytics and Prosper to Retire. Lots of interesting things happening for p2p investors. Enjoy your weekend.
