The rise of marketplace lending in Europe
Raised capital requirements for banks are making it increasingly difficult to get a bank loan. As a result, the demand for alternative financing options is rising, and more and more professional (online) platforms are stepping in to match loan demand to suitable investors. With the help of innovative technology, FinTech startups are creating efficient and transparent marketplaces. These platforms can offer institutional investors attractive returns on (tradeable) assets. At the same time, there is work to be done to ensure transparency and minimize risks. What does this mean for the current bank and investment landscape? Big changes in the near future are inevitable, so where do the opportunities lie for you?
