P2P platforms have grown exponentially in the last couple of years. Their superior customer experience, speed, and ultimately cost of credit have allowed P2P lending platforms to compete for banks' customer bases directly. P2P lending platforms are not attempting to serve a previously underserved segment of the market, but lucrative creditworthy borrowers. Alternative credit risk models are a key competitive advantage for P2P lending platforms, enabling cheaper cost of credit through more accurate default risk assessment. The more customers P2P lending platforms acquire, the more refined their credit risk models become and consequently the cheaper the cost of credit.
