Self-Directed IRA growth in Lending Club

Enjoy the tax advantages of a self-directed** Traditional or Roth IRA that allows you to invest in Lending Club Notes. A single $100,000 investment can grow to more than $1.5 million dollars over 30 years.*

Lending Club Notes can provide solid returns, lower volatility, as well as monthly cash flow. You can create a well-diversified portfolio of Notes that fit your investment objectives by selecting from our risk-adjusted Note Grades A through G and spreading your investment equally across hundreds or even thousands of Notes.

Lending Club Notes purchased through a tax-advantaged individual retirement account must be held through maturity, either 36 or 60 months depending on the Notes you choose. Please consider this when making your investment decision.
