Prosper Marketplace, the first peer-to-peer lender in the U.S., is planning to charge an extra fee to investors who want to bundle its loans into bonds in order to offset its increased costs from the securitization process.

"When we are doing this stuff, we're kind of in the vanguard because no one has done this before," Prosper Chief Executive Officer Aaron Vermut said in an interview. "Where we have more work, we do charge for our services. We're also not in the business of taking extra risk for nothing."
