Top P2P Online Resources

Below is a list of what we believe to be the top outlets for research in P2P industry.

Peerloansonline,  Peerloansonline provides information for both investors and borrowers to help everyone learn about this revolutionary movement and how it will change our lives.

Prosper Blog is a corporate blog so it is going to feature mostly news releases and info about the Prosper platform. It is still a good read and the company often runs contests and highlights books to read about the world of online loans.

Lending Club Blog, also a corporate blog and a little less personal than the Prosper blog but still has a lot of good information on the state of online loans and Lending Club itself. The company recently filed to issue stock in the market so you may want to visit the site to keep updated on that process. An IPO by Lending Club will not only help it grow but will advance the whole industry as peer lending becomes mainstream. Big changes are coming!

Lending Memo, Simon is an active investor on both Prosper and Lending Club and is passionate about the way technology is playing its part in fostering healthy finance needs and social connection. The site is slightly more focused to investors than borrowers but offers a lot of information to everyone and detailed analysis of the industry.

Lend Academy, Peter runs one of the most popular peer lending sites and has been active in the topic since 2008. He also invests with both Prosper and Lending Club and talks about his returns on the blog. Much of the content is geared to investors but it also contains a page for borrowers and a forum where people can interact.

PeerSocialLending, Ryan is an investor in online loans and has been running the site since early 2013. I really like the layout of the blog which makes it easy to move around and find what you’re looking for. The site also provides a link to video resources that show how to automate your investments with various platforms.

P2P Lending Expert, Stu is a finance guy like myself. Formerly a stockbroker, he is now a commercial credit director for an equipment finance company so he brings a strong insight into credit analysis and how to use it in online loans. The blog focuses on the Prosper platform but Stu also provides information for investors on Lending Club or Zopa as well.

Nickel Steamroller is probably the most well-known site for statistics and criteria on peer loans. You will not find as much personal information in the content but you will get some great research and analysis on what criteria works to pick the best peer loans for your portfolio. The site includes a back-testing software so you can see how your criteria would have translated to returns over different time periods.

WiseClerk is a forum so you won’t find as much blog-type information but it is a great source for talking and exchanging ideas with others in the online loans space. The forum has groups for each of the major peer lending platforms, including the ones outside the United States. The group discussion for borrowers is not as active as the others but still a good resource for ideas.
