A prominent lending and fintech conference is offering mini conferences to people interested in leaning more about the space.
LendIt Forums are free learning events for asset managers, real estate investors, financial advisors, commercial bankers, lending innovators, and venture capitalists.
The first LendIt Forum, Ask Us About…Marketplace Lending 101takes place on Wed., Jan. 18 at 2 pm ET. Participants can ask questions to LendIt chairman and CEO Peter Rention and Crowdfund Insider founder and CEO Andrew Dix.
“Despite some challenges in 2016, marketplace lending is one of the best performing fixed income investments,” the organizers said in a statement. “Fueling this interest is the global trend in marketplace originations which have doubled every year between 2010 and 2015 and (which are) expected to grow to $1 trillion by 2025, as indicated by Foundation Capital.”
