AltLend: Consumer – San Francisco

January 20, 2016 - January 21, 2016

Marketplace lending for consumers has been hot, but is it the real deal or just a flash in the pan?

It’s the question on everyone’s minds.  Investor demand for whole and partial loans have spurred a massive influx of new platforms, but are these new products sustainable as borrower acquisition levels out?  Let’s break down what differentiates the platforms, discuss how they’re responding to changing market conditions, and figure out what they’re doing to take consumer lending to the next level.

This two-day event offers an analytical approach to industry practices and uncovers what’s really innovative in the already crowded alternative lending landscape.  Ideal for learning, networking, and business development, AltLend: Consumer brings together investors, bankers, and platforms to break down the hype surrounding marketplace and direct lending for prime and near-prime borrowers.  Regulatory concerns, transparency, customer acquisition, and underwriting practices are all on the table—let’s find out how the industry is building longevity into its products.
