Hexindai: Regulators' Decision to Include P2P Platforms in Central Bank's Credit System a Positive Step for the Industry

BEIJING, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hexindai Inc. (NASDAQ: HX) ("Hexindai" or the "Company"), a fast-growing consumer lending marketplace in China, today stated its support for the decision by industry regulators to include the country's P2P platforms in the central bank's credit system.

Hexindai views this as a positive move for the P2P industry, which will help protect lenders' interests, control credit risk, build up confidence, and drive the industry's healthy and long-term growth.

China's regulators for the internet finance industry issued an official guideline on September 2 that requires P2P lending companies to be connected to the Credit Reference Center at the People's Bank of China (PBOC) and Baihang Credit, China's licensed personal credit agency established by the National Internet Finance Association of China. With the inclusion of P2P platforms in the country's credit system, the information of online lending defaulters will be added and reflected in their personal credit reports.

"To include P2P platforms in the central bank's credit system is a significant progress to improve the development of China's credit system," said Mr. Xiaobo An, Hexindai's Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Hexindai welcomes the regulators' decision and will continue to make efforts to curb malicious defaults, protect lenders' interests, and contribute to a compliant and transparent ecosystem for the industry."

Hexindai has been taking timely actions to meet compliance requirements and protect investors' interests. In January this year, Hexindai was one of the first P2P platforms in the country to connect its data with Baihang Credit. As a member of the Beijing Internet Finance Industry Association, Hexindai and 26 other companies issued a joint statement in August 2018, and committed to contributing to the credit system's development, protection of lenders' rights and the maintenance of market order.
