The Coalition

About the Online Lending Policy Institute


By collaborating with industry and regulatory experts and utilizing participating academic expertise we hope this summit will lead to the creation of an inclusive coalition to represent the diverse ideas of our industry.

The Online Lending Policy Institute is an initiative dedicated to creating an open and constructive dialogue between marketplace lending industry participants and federal and state policy makers.   The Institute will provide policy analysis and thought leadership to assist in the responsible growth in online lending.  It will help vet fresh ideas and introduce strong voices to assist policymakers with fostering innovation.  The Institute is an open, transparent and inclusive think tank that convenes stakeholders, facilitates industry consensus, and encourages the development of a regulatory framework that protects consumers while promoting innovation.


The Online Lending Policy Institute’s mission is to ensure consumers continue to benefit from the lower cost of credit and increased, convenient access to capital provided by marketplace lending while supporting consumer protections and a strong financial system. We work towards that mission by engaging policy makers and industry stakeholders in the formation of forward-thinking public policy.
