    The original peer to peer lending is the Infinite Banking Concept – Tax advantaged, liquid, safe and in most states judgment proof when properly structured. or Take an ownership position in some of the oldest mutual companies in the history of the world – The right way!

    Lending Club made a big mistake taking in institutional money a few years ago. This concept needs to stay organic to avoid bubbles.

    This video is misleading. P2P lending may have a low correlation with equities during this bull market, where equities rise much faster, and P2P pays interests. But when a bear market come, when delinquencies start to mount, the downward correlation will be much higher. Measuring correlation only on a bull market is akin to fraud.

    Low correlation with a rising stock market, and high correlation with a falling stock market. Does that sound like a good investment plan?


      Yes, you are , just like the China p2p lending industry is totally collapsed with falling stock market and down trend economy

    Not sure why I would want to entrust GS with my money if it is P2P? Why want a counterparty like them? I would just loan my cryptos on the blockchain—I would sleep better…
