P2P Lender Lending Club Announces Partnership with Union Bank

Renauld Laplanche, CEO of Lending Club, announced today that Lending Club and Union Bank will partner to develop and offer products to  the 1 million customers of Union Bank. Lending Club has partnered with several smaller banks in the 12 to 18 months. Laplanche sees great potential for more of the 6,000 banks in the US to partner with the p2p lending industry and profit from leaner processes the new players offer.
