The missing link in online lending: asset managers and bigger tickets

AltFi Amsterdam Summit 2018 - Monday 5 November 2018

Investors are becoming reluctant to hand over cheques to smaller companies because of the lack of trust and reliability in the market.

Stéphane said it takes the same time to complete a £40m as a £40,000 deal so it is only logical to pick the bigger ticket. 

The panel agreed on the importanance of transparency when it comes to online lending. Dr. Bartsch said that transparency is gradually improving and Gabriella believes if transparency is done correctly, trust will follow.

Ticket sizes are growing as companies like Creditshelf raises its threshold from €2.5m to €5m.
