Fixed-income alternative investment firm Looking Glass Investments has opened a research office in Brunswick, Maine. The office will be headed Dr. Nathan Tefft, the company’s executive vice-resident and chief economist.
Looking Glass President and COO Matthew O’Malley explains his company’s investment into marketplace lending predictive analytics.
“The founding members of Looking Glass Investments believed from the outset that research would drive our business. Now is the ideal time to open what I believe to be the first-ever research lab for marketplace lending predictive analytics.”
Beginning this summer the new office will also students from Bates College in Lewiston to conduct research into marketplace lending through the college’s Purposeful Work internship program.
