1. Great list!

    P2P lending still seems to be disappointingly in its infancy in Australia when you compare us to the UK and the US. I dug myself out of a debt hole and am now in a position to be lending, so I’d really like it to get a move on so I can start helping people who are like the former me.

    Perhaps this will be a good thing to come out of the current economic environment?

      1. Mozo is a financial comparison site.

        It has up to date, objective data about pretty well all Australian financial products plus it has customers’ opionions (captured as ratings and reviews) about their banking experience with their financial provider.

        So you can find your ideal product by comparing your options, you can compare your current product with the market to see just how much value you are (probably not) getting, and you can give vent to your fiscal feelings.

        In other words, you can put your mouth where your money is.



        1. ayep. Nice ad 😛
          But the post was about peer to peer lending, not bank-to-customer lending with reviews.
          Still, if YOU are involved, it will be a good site!

  2. Hi Laurel
    Interesting article – would love a thorough update on Fosik (which has server errors), LendingHub (which seems to be frozen in time) and iGrin (which has written >$200k in loans but now has very little activity. Peermint, it seems, didn’t get going.
    Surely this is as good a time as any to get peer to peer happening?

  3. Sweet blog! I found it whil browsing on Yaho News. Do
