Transforming the banking system
How is seems that peer-to-peer lending is transforming the banking system. Lending Club recently announced that two of the nation’s community banks, Titan Bank and Congressional Bank, are starting to buy loans through the Lending Club platform.

Lending Club brings a low cost operating model to consumer lending. Banks, on the other hand, have a low cost of funds and deep roots in local communities. Our alliance with Lending Club truly combines the best of both worlds to bring down the cost of credit for our customers. This is the future of bank lending – Titan Bank Director Jonathan Morris.
