Lending Club New Product?
OP: April 12, 2016, 11:00:00 PM
Didn't Lending Club state either at the end of last year or early this year that they would be introducing something big this spring?  I half expected to maybe see an announcement tied into the LendIt conference, but nothing.  Any more ideas on what it may be or when it may happen?  I seem to remember speculation around car financing or something similar.  Does anyone expect it will be something that will be available to retail investors?

They announced it'll be launched at their investor day or earnings release, can't remember which . I keep thinking it was May 13 but likely wrong

Maybe it will be a Certificate of deposit? And LC will get into the banking business to lower their cost of capital.

The way it was being hyped and the secrecy around other marketplace lenders seems like it will be some type of new credit product, like their small business "use what you need," credit line product and not just adding a traditional credit product to the mix.

Why would they touch auto loans?  I am still seeing 2% on car loans.  How bad a risk would a debtor have to be before you would be able to get a decent return as an investor?  I don't think I would touch them.

From a borrower standpoint I can see some sort of "line of credit" product being attractive, whether a consumer credit card or a business credit line, etc.  But I have a hard time picturing how to fractionalize it from a lender standpoint....you can't have several people all willing to loan someone money on a moment's notice.  Unless hundreds of lines of credit are aggregated into a fund with institutional ownership.  I can't see that being something us little guys can invest in.
