However, for the industry to make the most out of the emerging opportunities, P2P lending players will need to work together, not only with each other but also with the government and regulators to ensure overall growth for the sector.

“The Association of P2P Lending Platforms will help streamline the industry and work with various stakeholders in the alternative lending and financial services ecosystem to further reinforce the sector’s potential in the market,” said Mr. Sumail A Khan.
