During the world's top industry summit held by LendIT, Jason Jones -- the founder of America's largest P2P research institution Lend Academy – released a survey report that took 9 months to complete, on Chinese P2P companies.
Jason Jones said, "As we said in December of last year, in China, the P2P market is huge, has greatly surpassed that of the United States, and is developing fast. Now that China already has hundreds or thousands of P2P loan platforms, it is very difficult to understand how the P2P industry in China originated. Now to every industry person or company, we always ask the same question, “Who is China’s most important P2P company? Not the biggest, or the earliest, or even the most popular, but who is the most important player.”
After thorough research and investigation, Jason Jones obtained "China's most important P2P company" list, which has become the most important reference guide in determining which Chinese P2P companies were invited to the LendIT summit. This list includes CRF and eight other Chinese P2P companies.
In addition, CRF as the Shanghai Service Industry Bureau of the Special Committee of Financial Information Services Unit, CRF’s CEO Wang Zhengyu, Ph.D. (University of Illinois Chicago statistics), who’s long-term commitment and crucial role to P2P’s growth and development in China, will be the keynote speaker at the LendIT summit.
The following excerpt is an evaluation on CRF’s performance, taken from Jason Jones’ survey report, "China's most important P2P companies.”
