Marketplace Lending

The growth of non-bank or peer-to-peer lending in recent years has led to the securitisation of a proportion of such loans, primarily in the US. MPL (marketplace lending) deals form a sub-sector of the broader asset-backed securities, or ABS, market and have involved deals packaged into consumer/credit card ABS, RMBS, SME CLOs and student loan ABS.
