LendIt, the largest and most recognized conference for the P2P and online lending industry, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its 2nd annual conference scheduled for May 4-6, 2014 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
LendIt will bring together the leaders and pioneers at the forefront of the p2p and online lending industry. In addition to the leading lending platforms, LendIt 2014 is expected to draw institutional investors, financial analysts, private wealth managers, family offices, individual investors and media representatives from across the globe. Agenda, speakers and sponsors will be announced within the coming months.
“With the online lending industry’s annual growth rate currently near 200%, global interest in the sector is rapidly intensifying,” said Peter Renton, Co-Founder of LendIt and Founder of Lend Academy. “As such, we have expanded the LendIt program and increased the size of the venue in order to accommodate the rising demand.”
The consumer p2p lending platforms in the United States grew dramatically in 2013. The world’s leading p2p lender, Lending Club, issued $2.1 billion in new loans last year growing at an astounding 188% annual rate. The number two player, Prosper Marketplace, issued $357 million in new loans, a 133% annual growth rate. Both companies are based in downtown San Francisco with their head offices just a few blocks from the LendIt 2014 conference venue.
