Alternative lenders, while making up a small but fast-growing portion of all loans, are rapidly gaining the attention of prospective borrowers, traditional lenders, investors and technology companies and changing the landscape of the lending industry.

The Capital Markets Practice of Bridgeforce Inc., a multi-national, specialized consulting firm, is publishing the first part of a multi-part series on the Alternative Lending market. The introductory paper, entitled "Technology-Enabled Alternative Lending" gives an overview of the market, defining three distinct groups of lenders, their objectives, business models and opportunities. Future papers will explore specific aspects such as valuation, technology and compliance.

With the help of technology, new entrants are finding promising and potentially significant profitable opportunities to cater to underserved markets and previously restricted borrowers, as well as competing with traditional lenders for some consumer and small business loans.

"Innovations by alternative lenders are providing new benefits in terms of speed, convenience, costs and transparency giving borrowers a credible alternative," says John Sanders, Head of the Bridgeforce Capital Markets Practice. "Our work with emerging marketplace firms, traditional banking models, technology solution providers, and investors gives us a unique under-the-hood view of this sector, and this series is geared towards understanding and making sense of the advances in this space.”
