Peeringintofinance – A site about P2P Lending and Rethinking Finance

The search is on for ways to make the financial system more responsible and more democratic. This site is about a new form of finance that claims to do precisely that: online peer-to-peer (P2P) lending.

Advocates of this so-called ‘social lending’ emphasise the benefits of removing big banks from the lending equation, since it allows individuals and small-to-medium sized enterprises to borrow money directly from investors through online platforms.

This site documents findings and provides commentary from a project on social lending in the UK, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
