2015 was a big year for marketplace lending. While the industry continued to enjoy explosive growth and strong capital investment, federal and state regulators have made clear that they are actively studying this market and considering greater involvement. Examples of this new regulatory interest include the Treasury Department's July 2015 Request for Information, the California Department of Business Oversight's December 2015 Inquiry, and the FDIC's comments on marketplace lending in its December 2015 Winter Supervisory Highlights.


In this webinar, our panel of marketplace lending attorneys will discuss what we see coming in 2016. Topics will include:

  • The likelihood of material new legislation and regulation affecting marketplace lending
  • Possible licensing enforcement actions by state regulators
  • Bank partnership developments, including the true lender and Madden risks
  • Theories on which regulators might bring enforcement actions
  • Class action risks
