Howard Freedland's curator insight, December 28, 2015 5:04 PM

I believe that the article misses the underlying truth which is why JP Morgan is partnering with OnDeck and other banks are partnering with LendingClub and other alternative lenders.  The underlying truth is that the difference in the cost of origination in bps is much greater than the delta in credit losses.  The net spread is greater for alternative lenders which is why banks are partnering rather than competing.  I expect these economics to continue to widen in favor of alternative lenders over the coming years.
