News coverage of P2P lending
This week there has been some good coverage of peer-to-peer lending on the BBC's The One Show (after 23m 15s) which resulted is a massive 6000% increase in hourly hits on the P2P money site. Funding Circle confirmed to P2P Money they experienced record traffic for this time.
The vast majority of coverage is from the perspective of the lender, but we should also not forget that peer-to-peer lending requires borrowers. The rates borrowers can achieve with peer-to-peer lending are market leading for certain loan sizes, so borrowers can get a great deal.
