The most important stories and data from the world of marketplace lending and alternative finance.

 

 

One of the ‘founding fathers of the p2p and marketplace lending industry – Zopa’s Giles Andrews has a new job. More specifically, another job. Andrews has just been announced as non-executive chairman of MarketInvoice, which recently passed the £1bn mark in invoices funded to date.

 

Two nuggets of good news for Funding Circle, which is just behind Zopa in the top spot as the UK’s largest P2P lender. Firstly, it is looking to raise a substantial amount of cash through its listed fund. Secondly, its – and Europe’s – first securitiisation has seen a boost in the form of an upgrade from ratings agency Moody’s.

 

P2P platform Landbay is turning to crowdfunding for capital. The buy-to-let mortgage lending platform, is hosting a £1.5m equity crowdfunding round on SeedrsLandbay is already  overfunded, with more than £1.7m invested so far.
