In this newly created position at LenDenClub, Atal will be part of the leadership team, and the board to help the organisation flourish and cultivate.

LenDenClub intends to broaden its brand portfolio and range of services, and Atal will spearhead this strategic drive.

For over 13 years as an Investment Banker, he held leadership positions with prominent brands such as DSP Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, and Jardine Fleming, among others. Atal has managed various disinvestment, capital raising, and advising activities, both debt and equity, in domestic and overseas markets for a diverse range of clients.

Speaking on his appointment, Atal Agarwal said, “I am honoured to join LenDenClub, an incredibly well-positioned company that strives to fulfill the demands that have been left unattended by others. Today it is the fastest-growing P2P lending platform in the country. Although Peer-to-Peer Lending is still relatively new in India, recently, there has been an accelerated traction from borrowers and investors. It is now the established alternative asset class that provides high risk-adjusted returns compared to traditional fixed income instruments for investors. It is a simple and convenient way for borrowers to get short-term loans. The P2P lending industry is expected to achieve a CAGR of over 20% during the next five years, reaching a size of over $10 billion. I am excited to make a meaningful contribution to the company’s exponential growth journey.”
