DENVER and SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —
NSR Invest, a leading peer-to-peer investment management platform, and MonJa, a leading provider of market insights for the peer-to-peer lending industry, announced today a strategic partnership to enhance the NSR Invest technology platform with MonJa’s institutional-caliber analytical tools to better manage peer-to-peer investments.
MonJa’s sophisticated analytics and bespoke loan selection algorithms will be tightly integrated into NSR Invest’s core platform, providing NSR Invest with added capabilities to manage financial advisors’ peer-to-peer investments for their clients.
“As peer-to-peer investing becomes more widely adopted by financial advisors and their clients, the need to bring institutional level analytics and performance reporting becomes more and more important,” said Bo Brustkern, CEO of NSR Invest. “We’re excited to extend our partnership with MonJa to bring these capabilities to our platform.”
Peer-to-peer investing is a rapidly growing asset class that is successfully diversifying client portfolios, dampening volatility, and delivering attractive fixed income returns. Due to these compelling portfolio management characteristics, there has been increasing demand by financial advisors and their clients to integrate peer-to-peer investments into their portfolios.
However, due to the complexities involved, industry experts and analysts recommend that advisors and their clients leverage the capabilities of experienced, third-party money managers who are deploying the latest technologies.
“We are looking forward to bringing our credit expertise in peer-to-peer lending to financial advisors,” said James Wu, CEO of MonJa. “Integrating our institutional technology, analytical and management capabilities with NSR Invest will create a compelling combination that will raise the bar for investing in this space.”
The NSR Invest and MonJa integration will also enhance the critical API connections needed to access peer-to-peer investments from the industry’s leading marketplaces, including Lending Club, Prosper and Funding Circle.
NSR Invest will be exhibiting at the upcoming Financial Planning Association (FPA) BE conference, to be held September 26-28, 2015 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Live demonstrations of the NSR Invest platform will be available, along with attendance of NSR Invest executives, including CEO Bo Brustkern.
