Arixa founder Jan Brzeski was quoted recently in The Bankless Times (www.banklesstimes.com), a electronic publication based in Palo Alto, California. The mission of The Bankless Times is to document the rapidly growing area of alternative finance, including peer-to-peer lending, private money lending, crowdfunding and related topics. The article, by staff writer Geoff Kirbyson, is entitled "Putting Your Trust in Trust Deed Investing." The article contrasts Arixa's model of making short-term real estate loans, and holding those loans on its own balance sheet through maturity, to the more prevalent broker model in which individual investors make a loan directly to borrowers and the transaction is arranged through a broker who takes very little financial risk in the transaction, if any.
