The Fall of Peer-to-Peer Lending in China:

Fixed direction and a liquidity crunch lead to the spate of P2P Platform breakdown which resulted in affecting the countless little speculators all over China.

The people there have lost interest in smaller firms as they are not sure whether they would stand in the long run or not. Dexter Hsu who is a Taipei-based analyst at Macquarie Capital says,

“Investors have lost confidence in the smaller platforms, because they have no idea if those companies will survive.” He feels that very few firms will be endured in the long run.

China’s P2P industry, the world’s biggest, is one of the most hazardous and slightest directed cuts of the country’s sprawling shadow-managing an accountability framework. The government clampdown has weighed on P2P platforms for a long time, however, the weight increased as of late after China’s credit markets fixed and the keeping money controller issued a strange cautioning to savers that they ought to be set up to lose all their cash in high return items.

The country’s P2P platforms are well established and have about 50 million users that are registered on it. It has the outstanding loan of 1.3 Trillion yuan($195 Billion) with short maturities. The traders normally have to wait for the loans to get facilitated by these platforms to mature before getting their investment back. But some of these traders are now trying to leave the transaction in between by selling their rights to others at a discounted price. Or, they are going to the offices and demanding repayment.

The reason for people taking these steps is quite clear. They do not trust these companies as they have seen the drastic results of few people. These P2P platforms are allegedly raising illegal funds and the traders are facing the consequences.
