DENVER, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NSR Invest and LendingRobot, two of the largest specialized Registered Investment Advisors in the alternative lending space, announced today that the companies have merged to create the leading independent advisory platform for alternative lending. Lend Core LLC, the parent company of NSR Invest, acquired Algorithmic, Inc. and all its assets, including the LendingRobot website and technology.
The combination brings together two highly complementary companies, each with an excellent reputation in the alternative, marketplace lending industry, also called peer lending. The joint team will combine its knowledge in the industry, investment algorithms, machine learning and blockchain technologies with the goal of providing steady investment returns to more than 8000 clients.
The websites, operating, and trading systems of NSRinvest.com and LendingRobot.com will continue to function separately in the short term. In the immediate future, the company is focusing its newfound strength on the LendingRobot Series. LendingRobot Series is an alternative lending robo-fund that allows investors to achieve immediate diversification and enhanced liquidity across the leading real estate, small business and consumer lending platforms. Uniquely, the fund utilizes its legal structure to adapt itself to each investor's specific needs, and allows each investor the ability to invest according to their specific duration and risk tolerance. In addition, LendingRobot Series leverages blockchain technology to securely publish an immutable ledger notarized by the Ethereum Blockchain, which allows it to be one of the most transparent funds in the industry.
