Six month review of my Lending Club account
« on: March 03, 2018, 12:37:23 PM »
A lot of you guys on here were very kind answering my questions prior to me signing up with Lending Club.  Figured I'd give a six month (or so) update.

I started buying loans on 09-14-17 and I've been adding several to my account weekly. 

My Notes at-a-Glance      142

Not Yet Issued                    4
Issued & Current             129
In Grace Period                   3
Fully Paid                            6


Adjusted Net Annualized Return   9.61%
Net Annualized Return                12.16%

My notes by grade are:

A  22%
B  33%
C  26.10%
D  14.70%
E   4.20%

I'm pretty happy with the results so far.  There always seem to be 2 or 3 loans in Grace period but I've only had one go late and then it paid almost as soon as it did.

I've been using LC picks (see other threads in the forum about them if you are unfamiliar) in order to pick which loans to invest in. My LC picks ranking is 71.3/82. 

I don't work for LC picks nor am I family member or something.  I just wanted to be transparent about how I make my choices.

Thanks again for all who helped out in the past.

I didn't like the amount of issues I was having with the higher interest loans so I've been focusing away from them lately.  That seems to be working. 

Overall I'm still happy.

Would you share why you are unhappy? I'm not trying to assume anything and always like getting another perspective.  You might shine light on something that I'm not looking at.

Unhappy because for the past few 2-3 months there has been gain anywhere from -1% to +1%. This is because of sudden explosion of defaults after about 10 months.

That sounds like a pretty good reason to be unhappy.

Thank you for sharing. I ask because you never know when someone has a perspective that maybe you aren't seeing.

Many of the newer folks have not researched enough I don't think.

Here is a article that talks about 3 seasons.  https://www.lendingmemo.com/lending-club-prosper-return-curve/

And, you are just hitting the default peak. Did you study about p2p lending before you started? I guess not.
