Prosper Loan Originations down 50% YoY in Q3
Online consumer lending stalwart Prosper Marketplace originated $493.8M in loan originations in its last reported quarter. While it sounds like a lot, the company said that’s a decrease of 53% from the same period in 2022. Prosper originated $1.72B in loans for the first 9 months of 2023 vs $2.5B in loans for the first 9 months of 2022.
“…the mix of personal loan originations on the Prosper platform reflects a significant decrease in investor appetite for whole loan purchases under the current economic environment, specifically for personal loans not assigned Prosper ratings,” the company said in its financial reports. “These personal loans are sold only to institutional investors and based on specific underwriting criteria and custom risk models developed by these investors.”
Prosper Marketplace logged a cumulative net loss of $93M for the first three quarters of 2023.Last modified: January 17, 2024
