Alternative Investment / Lending Platforms


Hi all,

Newbie here so apologies if this has been brought up.  I did a quick search and did not find anything.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has actual experience investing in these alternative investment / lending platforms that are popping up.  I'm thinking the likes of:

and I'm sure many others. 

These platforms allow direct access to investments such as commercial & resi RE (debt & equity), consumer debt, litigation debt, shipping liquidations, art portfolio, etc.  On the surface I'm wondering where these firms find an edge to source these investments and to price them correctly (alternatively, how were these investments funded previously - hedge funds?).  There is very little data out there on these platforms, so I'd appreciate any insights on your experience.
