Orchard Platform Announces Partnership with Duff & Phelps and Live Webcast on Opportunities of Investing in Marketplace Lending
Today we announced a partnership with Duff & Phelps to provide their valuation services for institutional investors on the Orchard Platform. As a follow up, we will co-host a live webcast on December 2, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. EST to discuss the opportunities of investing in marketplace lending and the issues investors in this space need to address. Register for the live webcast here.
Both teams are in London today, attending the LendIt Europe conference, where the global online lending industry is gathered. Topics of discussion include global lessons in marketplace lending to small businesses, supporting small businesses with P2P lending, challenges for cross border P2P lending, and P2P lending’s promise for the future. As the industry moves forward and tackles changing credit markets, we believe this partnership will enable our clients to effectively and accurately view their online lending portfolios and obtain independent fair values and return analytics seamlessly integrated in to one platform.
