Daily Fintech Conversations

What kind of businesses are Lending platforms? #LenditEurope insight

Samir Desai, cofounder of Funding Circle, said at #LenditEurope, that they are more like Asset managers. Think, KKR, Blackrock, Pimpco, and Apollo. This has a strong FIN flavor to it.

What do you think?

  • More like these Asset managers?
  • More like Tech businesses, Uber, Airbnd.
  • More like banks
  • More like crowdfunding platforms

Thinking of the space this way, Lending platforms look more like ASSET MANAGERS or imaginery banks that are 100% equity funded (equity provided by consumers). Wdty?
