It is still early days for P2P lending in Australia, but startups are eager to take a share of the $55bn personal loan market that has traditionally only been available to Aussie banks. New Zealand based p2p lender Harmoney has raised $200m of financing, led by P2P Global Investments PLC (a subsidiary of alternative asset manager Marshall Wace). The agreement includes both equity and debt, with P2PGI also signing an agreement for $200m of lending capital for Harmoney's marketplace.
