Join this panel of experts as they examine marketplace lending from a macro perspective, compare it to other forms of lending, and explore some of its pros and cons.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 14, 2018
Many companies, and most of any size, use borrowed funds as part of their capital structure. Depending on the nature of the business, its size, time in business, whether it has adequate collateral, and other factors, a business has myriad options when borrowing funds. This BUSINESS BORROWING BASICS 2018 Financial Poise webinar series provides a guided tour of the various borrowing options available to businesses, from both a business and legal perspective. Major topics covered include asset-based lending, P/O Finance, Factoring, Merchant Cash Advances, and Market Place Lending / Fintech. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of each, tricks of the trade when negotiating these arrangements, and more!
The final episode of the BUSINESS BORROWING BASICS 2018 series is Market Place Lending/Fintech, premiering on June 20th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here), and features Moderator Jonathan Friedland of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. He is joined by Amit Baid of TradeFin and Andrew Bertolina of Finvoice to explore how innovative financial technology is changing the way businesses borrow and lenders loan money.
The emergence of the internet completely revolutionized the lending landscape. Innovative financial technology is changing the way businesses borrow and lenders loan money, offering the promise of increased convenience and access to financial services.
One such innovation is the emergency of “marketplace lending,” sometimes referred to as “peer-to-peer” or “platform” lending. Lenders who occupy this space are typically online non-bank financial companies that built technology platforms and online marketing strategies to match borrowers and lenders.The platforms connect businesses who seek to borrow money with investors willing to buy or invest in the loan. In my most cases, once a loan is made, the platform collects principal and interest payments and makes payments, less fees that the platform keeps, to investors.
This webinar discusses marketplace lending from a macro perspective, including the regulatory regime that governs the space. It compares marketplace lending with other forms of lending. And it explores some of the pros and cons of borrowing from a marketplace lender.
