LendInvest receives first European rating for a P2P platform


LendInvest has received the first European rating from a regulated credit rating agency for a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform – a rating of SQ1 from ARC Ratings, the agency’s highest.

The rating was a Quality Assurance Rating, which assessed LendInvest's ability to originate deal-flow, and its underwriting and servicing capabilities.
ARC Ratings is a registered Credit Ratings Agency with the European Securities and Markets Authority. The rating that they have given to LendInvest, is the first rating from a regulated credit rating agency for a peer-to-peer platform in Europe.
The rating for LendInvest, comes off the back of the news last week that LendInvest has just done the largest Series A fundraising for a UK FinTech business, having raised GBP22m from a listed Chinese technology company.
Christian Faes, LendInvest CEO, says: "The fact that LendInvest was able to get a rating from a regulated credit rating agency, is a positive step for the whole peer-to-peer marketplace lending market in Europe.Credit ratings agencies are understandably cautious when looking at new business models like marketplace lending. However, this represents a move towards the mainstream for peer-to-peer and marketplace lending, and a real coup for LendInvest."
