Allen Webb, Senior Portfolio Specialist at RiverNorth Capital Management talks with Julie Cooling, Founder and CEO at RIA Channel about their new marketplace lending strategy, specifically, RMPLX. With roughly $30 billion in originations in 2016, peer-to-peer lending, or marketplace lending is still just a sliver of the overall lending market with lots of room to grow. This new asset class began in the UK in 2004 and hit the U.S. with firms such as Lending Club and Prosper.
Our firm has been using Blue Vault from the first year it was available.
We have found it to be a valuable tool to verify what wholesalers tell us and to dig deep into how the reported investments are really performing.
We appreciate that Blue Vault has expanded its services from initially covering REIT's to now also including BDC's.
Our clients also appreciate that we conduct this additional due diligence on their behalf.
