Panelists include: Philippe Marleau, IOU Financial; Ben Gold, QuickBridge Funding; George Souri, LQD Business Finance; Ryan Rosett, Credibly; Moderator: Justin Brownhill, SenaHill Partners.

As governments continue to look at raising interest rates, investors are looking for products with high returns and a quick turnaround; at LendIt USA 2017 we hosted a panel of small business lenders in the short duration space; panelists began the discussion on what they consider short term and high yield; the lenders on the panel also talked about their particular focus in the space, how they view these companies and why it is an attractive asset class; the panel offers a good understanding of the options available for companies in need of quick capital and how investors can make significant returns.
