Event Synopsis:

Marketplace lending and crowdfunding are methods of raising capital on the internet without recourse to banks or other traditional lenders. These peer-to-peer arrangements also allow investors to pool their risk by distributing their loans in small amounts to a multitude of borrowers. While usually done on user-friendly platforms or through social networking, these forms of lending carry their own special risks, and deciding which loans are safe and likely to produce good returns takes savvy and a set of analytical tools. Further, as these methods become more and more prevalent, regulatory agencies may soon act to impose rules.

This two-hour course will give individual and institutional investors an overview of peer-to-peer lending and the legal issues surrounding it. A panel of key thought leaders and professionals will walk through the various processes, identifying potential hazards along the way. Also to be covered is compliance with requirements of the JOBS Act and Securities and the Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as management of associated costs.
