dv01 and Experian collaborate to bring additional transparency to marketplace lending, providing institutional investors access to richer borrower attributes

Collaboration will add millions of external data points to dv01's platform, allowing for more comprehensive risk analysis of marketplace loans and bonds

NEW YORK, and COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- dv01, the reporting and analytics platform that brings transparency to lending markets, and Experian, the leading global information services company, today announced a strategic collaboration that will provide dv01 clients—including leading hedge funds, banks and asset managers—access to richer borrower credit attributes as they conduct performance analysis using dv01's suite of built-in tools. 

"We're excited to partner with Experian to bring additional data transparency and actionable intelligence to the marketplace lending ecosystem," said Perry Rahbar, founder and CEO of dv01. "dv01 already has a robust set of tools for reporting and analysis, and this new influx of data will allow clients to better understand loan performance by enabling our tools to operate at their maximum potential. The more institutional investors know, the better their decision-making."

dv01 is in the process of mapping millions of borrower attributes from Experian's database to installment loans in client portfolios. The Experian data is anonymized. which will allow dv01 clients to begin to isolate external trends that might affect their portfolios' future performance or explain past behavior. Additionally, dv01 is acting as a data warehouse for select data sets that Experian offers investors for modeling purposes. By standardizing, streamlining and integrating these data sets into its platform, dv01 makes it easy for investors to model performance, as well as find fast answers around origination trends.

"Experian's powerful credit data combined with dv01's performance data on marketplace loans and portfolios allows institutional investors to surgically analyze risk and value based on borrowers' credit performance," said Alex Lintner, president of Consumer Information Services, Experian. "Borrower data allows investors to evaluate and analyze future performance in a way not previously possible, and this leads to smarter, more profitable decisions."

dv01 has aggregated performance data for more than $40 billion of loans from marketplace lenders including SoFi, Lending Club, Prosper, Marlette Funding, Avant, and CommonBond. By normalizing data across lenders, dv01 simplifies comparison and analysis, enabling institutional investors to study both pool and individual loan performance, as well as quickly detect issues within portfolios. To date, dv01 has raised $7.5 million of seed funding from Quantum Strategic Partners Ltd., Leucadia National Corporation and Pivot Investment Partners.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
