Closing P2P-Picks Newsletters and Your Alternatives
« on: June 08, 2015, 12:17:21 PM »
Dear Subscriber,

I am writing to share that effective June 30th, P2P-Picks newsletters will no longer be available for use. After three years of effort in this niche of finance, an opportunity has come along that I am compelled to take, which will require my full business time and attention. Starting on July 1st, I will be the Chief Investment Officer of Direct Lending Investments, one of the first private investment firms to focus on this space (www.dirlend.com).

This decision comes with mixed feelings because in a small way, part of my opportunity has come as a result of your trust and use of my services. The P2P-Picks newsletters led to some of my first consulting jobs, which have multiplied over the last year and culminated in this new role. I regret that I have to let P2P-Picks go and deeply hope that you have had an enjoyable experience with the service. At the same time, I am excited to begin working for a fund, learning about other types of credit and still performing plenty of due diligence to ensure investments are sound.

To help you transition away from P2P-Picks, I have asked other service providers to create some alternatives for your consideration. P2P-Picks newsletters will not be available at any outlet; any other credit models are providers' own creations. Descriptions of the services are provided by the respective companies and listed in alphabetical order so as not to connote a preference.

Yours Sincerely,

Bryce Mason

Congratulations and I'm sure you'll enjoy learning new types of credit.  Consumer loan structures are so boring :)

There is another LC alternative not mentioned; the often maligned Autoinvest feature of the LC web site.
I have very little familiarity with it, but know it provides basic filtering and it is free.
I'm not sure anyone outside LC really knows whether or not all the "best" loans are gone before LC Autoinvest gets a shot at them.
Anyway, this may be a viable alternative for some, but it sure ain't P2P Picks!

Best of luck in the new job Bryce! Thanks for everything.

LendingRobot did a comparison that breaks down the general differences of 3rd party vs LCs. HTH
