Pros Say Crowdfunding About To Crash

Certain finance professionals in the UK believe that crowdfunding lending is “a car crash waiting to happen.”

At the Finance Professional Show in London, that lender based his conclusion on the belief that there are too many lenders who don’t know anything about lending to small businesses, there is too much liquidity in the market and that interest rates being charged are too low.

Other commentators found that the market had not yet met the “saturation point,” while another believes that there will soon be a market consolidation among the lenders for survival.
