Zopa: like eBay for money

ga('send', 'event', 'Financial Services', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

Just launched: UK-based Zopa, a place where creditworthy consumers who’d like to borrow money can get together with other consumers who are happy to lend it to them. Cutting out the middleman, lenders set their own rate of return and choose which borrowers they want to lend to. Zopa manages various ‘markets’, matching lenders with borrowers’ various risk profiles. Intrepid lenders might choose borrowers at a lower credit band who can give them a higher rate of interest. Cautious lenders can choose borrowers at a higher credit band, but then of course the rate will be lower.
