Zopa withdraws from U.S. marketplace
LONDON (10/13/08)--Peer-to-peer lender Zopa has pulled out of the U.S. marketplace, the lender announced on its website Thursday. Six credit unions had partnered with the online lending initiative last year. “The U.S. has been adversely affected in a way that just couldn’t have been predicted when we launched in the U.S.,” Zopa said on its blog. “[It] is no way the fault of our partners.” Zopa’s U.S. customer deposit accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Administration up to $250,000, and servicing of those accounts and loans will be assumed by the credit unions within 90 days, Zopa said. The six credit unions that partnered with Zopa include:
* Addison Avenue FCU, Palo Alto, Calif.; * Affinity Plus FCU, St. Paul, Minn.; * FirstTech CU, Beaverton, Ore.; * FORUM CU, Indianapolis; * Provident CU, Redwood City, Calif.; and * USA FCU, San Diego.
