History of MPL and the investment characteristics of the asset class
Online origination of consumer and small business loans has seen remarkable growth over the past 5 years. What was once a truly peer-to-peer market has transformed into an institutional asset class. Marketplace (MPL) lending originations have grown from under $1B in 2011, to ~$27B in 2016. While this represents tremendous compounded growth, it is still less than 3% of total household originations. Please join RiverNorth's Philip Bartow (lead-PM, Marketplace lending strategies) as he presents a brief history of MPL, the investment characteristics of the asset class, and his thoughts on risks & future opportunities.
