Chinese Regulators to Cap P2P Investments

| By:

Thanks to the Ezubao ponzi scheme that opened up a can of worms and sent a slew of Chinese P2P lenders packing, the government is considering placing caps on the P2P lending sector to protect investors.

As part of the crackdown on Chinese P2P lenders, the central bank began collecting data on the process of assessing risk and deploying capital for loans made online after authorities arrested executives from two other Shanghai-based wealth management firms in May.

As per the new proposed cap, an individual investor can only provide loans upto RMB200,000 (US $30,000) on one lending platform, and cannot lend more than RMB1 million (US $150,000) in total.

Chinese media reported that over 515 P2P platforms have shut down in the first half of the year, with fraud being a pervasive reason. Despite problems, China continues to have the largest p2p lending sector in the world.
