NSR Invest, a platform that brings institutional type tools to investors in peer to peer loans, has partnered up with MonJa to add more sophisticated analytics for NSR Invest users. San Francisco-based MonJa specializes in loan strategy and portfolio analytics driven by a team of credit & investment risk management veterans. The combination expects to drive better returns for marketplace lending investors using NSR.
“As peer-to-peer investing becomes more widely adopted by financial advisors and their clients, the need to bring institutional level analytics and performance reporting becomes more and more important,” said Bo Brustkern, CEO of NSR Invest. “We’re excited to extend our partnership with MonJa to bring these capabilities to our platform.”
As the direct lending sector grows, the demand for more sophisticated tools should rise. NSR says there is increasing demand by financial advisors and their clients to integrate peer-to-peer investments into their portfolios. The NSR Invest and MonJa integration should enhance the API connections needed to access peer-to-peer investments from the industry’s leading marketplaces, including Lending Club, Prosper and Funding Circle.
“We are looking forward to bringing our credit expertise in peer-to-peer lending to financial advisors,” said James Wu, CEO of MonJa. “Integrating our institutional technology, analytical and management capabilities with NSR Invest will create a compelling combination that will raise the bar for investing in this space.”
