Yesterday the headline of Dutch De Financiele Telegraph read "ABN AMRO brings together borrowers and lenders". ABN Amro is a large bank in the Netherlands. The article mentioned Boober and that ABN Amro is offering a different service.
So what is ABN Amro offering? P2P lending?
Actually the service in question can be found on this page and it is a free download document that lenders and borrowers can use to agree on a loan contract between them. Other the supplying the download ABN Amro is not involved in any resulting loans. In fact the site states (in Dutch):
… The general information on this page has not been meant as a recommendation. ABN Amro will not take liability …
I guess that can be filed under marketing using the 'peer-to-peer loan' buzz or at best under customer service.
