CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --LendingTree, the nation's
leading online source for competitive loan offers, has launched a new
comparison shopping platform for the emerging personal loan market segment.
Through lender integration and collaboration, the new personal loan shopping
experience has been streamlined and optimized to simplify the process for
borrowers and financial institutions.

Lenders and borrowers benefit from enhanced offer and offer detail pages which
link directly to pre-populated loan applications on the lenders' site, greatly
simplifying the steps from loan offer to origination. Because LendingTree's
upgraded personal loan product surfaces multiple offers, borrowers have more
options and the control to choose the offer that works best for them.

"We see significant growth in the personal loan space as financial
institutions are increasing their appetite for risk on uncollateralized loans
and peer-to-peer lending fuels a new kind of investor," said Nikul Patel,
LendingTree's Chief Product Officer. "Borrowers are using personal loans to
do big ticket projects and consolidate debt. Because rates can vary, we're
confident consumers are well served by comparison shopping for personal
loans. We're excited that we are able to help borrowers and lenders become
more efficient in the personal loan space."

The personal loan comparison shopping platform marks LendingTree's sixth major
lending product update this year.
