What is Lending Club?
Lending Club is America's #1 credit marketplace, transforming banking to make it more efficient, transparent and consumer friendly.
We operate at a lower cost than traditional banks and pass the savings on to borrowers in the form of lower rates and to investors in the form of solid returns.

Assign Grades and Interest Rates
Lending Club assigns a grade (from A to G) to each loan based on borrower credit quality and underlying risk.
The lowest interest rates are assigned to the least risky grades, which reflect the potentially lower loss rates (lower rate of charged off loans) and lower volatility in returns.1
1 Historical performance is not a guarantee of future results. Lending Club Notes are not guaranteed or insured, and investors may lose some or all of the principal invested.
Invest in Fractions of Loans
- You can invest in small fractions of borrower loans, called Notes.
- You can spread your investment across many borrower loans, quickly and easily diversifying your investment.

Historical Returns by Grade1:
Ready to get started?
1As of September 30, 2016. To be included in the Historical Returns calculation, a Note must have been originated prior to March 31, 2015. Historical Returns are Lending Club's adjusted net annualized returns (Adjusted NAR) for Notes with Grades A through C. Adjusted NAR is calculated using the formula described here. It is based on actual borrower payments received each month, net of service fees, actual charge offs, recoveries, and estimated future losses. To estimate future losses, we apply a loss rate estimate to the outstanding principal of any loans that are past-due but not charged off. The loss rate estimate is based on historical charge off rates by loan status over a 9-month period. Historical returns are not intended as a promise of future results. Individual portfolio results may be impacted by, among other things, the diversity of the portfolio, the exposure to any single Note or group of Notes, as well as macroeconomic conditions. Notes are offered by prospectus filed with the SEC and you should review the risks and uncertainties described in the prospectus prior to investing in the Notes.
