SoFi Aiming for IPO in 2H15

Social Finance, the peer-to-peer (P2P) student loan startup, is reportedly planning a $500m IPO in the second half of this year.  SoFi is working with Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley on the deal and plans to file its prospectus confidentially in the second quarter.  The offering would value SoFi at $3.5bn.

SoFi is a member of the Triton Research IPO Watchlist, a continuously updating database of companies we expect to either IPO or be acquired.  The current IPO Watchlist is comprised of 111 companies organized by investment theme.
