Is Peer-to-peer lending `here to stay’ ?

Lenders in a peer to peer setting are not large, structured entities such as banks, but individual investors seeking a more profitable alternative to traditional bank deposits. Peer to peer lending took hold in the United States in early 2006 with the launch…
