Lending Club Notes have Historical Returns by Grade A-C of 5.25% to 8.57%.1 You can choose the grade or grades that fit your investment goals.
Monthly Cash Flow
As borrowers make principal and interest payments each month, the funds are distributed to investors and are available for investors to reinvest or withdraw at any time. For example, if an investor made a $100,000 one time investment in 36-month, grade C Notes providing an aggregate 5.6% net annualized return, they would receive approximately $3,018 each month in cash payments to reinvest or withdraw.3
Easy to Diversify
Instead of investing in an entire loan, you can invest in fractions of loans in $25 increments. Each fraction of a loan is called a Note. Notes come in 36- or 60-month terms, depending on the term of the corresponding loan.
By purchasing many small Notes of equal size that correspond to different borrowers loans, you can diversify your portfolio and reduce the impact of any single loan loss.3
With just $2,500 you can spread your investment across 100 Notes. 99.9% of investors that own 100+ Notes of relatively equal size have seen positive returns.3
Loan Grades: Risk and Reward
Lending Club assigns a grade (from A to G) to each loan based on the credit quality and underlying risk of the borrower.
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.4
