Online lending is growing across the world. This is primarily due to emergence of nonbank online lenders, who are particularly attractive to smaller businesses which need quick loans. Online lenders use automated network and data to reach borrowers, and offer cheaper loans than bank services such as credit cards. This has increased the competition among banks, leading to reduced rates and quicker approval times for borrowers. Some of the major online lenders include Upstart, Lu.com, Borrowell, Landbay, Auxmoney, Smava and Dianrong.
The lending market consists of sales of lending services (loans) by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that engage in making secured or unsecured loans to borrowing entities. Lending entities include establishments such as finance companies, personal credit institutions, loan companies and student loans companies.
