The regulator and marketplace lending
A speech by John Price, Commissioner, Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Alternative Finance Australasia Summit (Sydney, Australia), 29 February 2016
Good afternoon, and thank you to Alternative Finance Australasia for the opportunity to present to you today. In my presentation I want to talk briefly about the work ASIC’s Innovation Hub is doing to facilitate innovation and help fintech start-ups, including marketplace lending entities.
I will then make some observations on the regulation of marketplace lending and what we are doing in respect of marketplace lending.
