Looking at the most recent quarterly report, it is stated that individual investor capital actually increased by $30 million this past quarter. However, it seems everyone on here is slowly withdrawing their money. How are these two observations compatible?

Below is the fractional loans originated on LC platform from the latest historical loan files. There was slight drop off in fractional loan originations (can be considered indicative of interest from retail lenders) since Dec 2016. The increase in March 2017 was most probably driven by LC promotion as well as quarter-end increase in originations.  But numbers are still much better than same time last year. The LC portfolio is not quick to unwind so the decline may show up across longer time interval.

Keep in mind the borrow default curve. If you stop reinvesting, then you stop getting interest from all of the new loans that probably haven't defaulted yet. The defaults keep rolling in though. June was also my worst month yet.

I have had a number of bad months. I invested understanding that there were going to be defaults. But I also invested looking at the percentage of defaults I could expect. The current default rate is well over that and looks to get worse.

I have stopped investing and I'm slowly withdrawing my money. I wonder if borrowers look at Lending Club as an easy mark.
