Interesting. However, I'm not really sure it will happen or more precisely I'm not sure there is a lot of value-add in this. As an investor the value-add of P2P is access to a new asset class and cutting intermediairies. The platform itself should be able to give you the main information you need to invest: credit rating of the borrower. From that you can allocate your investment to the various credit rating categories depending on the risk profile you want. Hence, there is little value-add in a "re-intermediation" in my sense.
