Discuss P2P Lending on the Lend Academy Forum

Have you noticed the Forum link at the top right of this page? That is the Lend Academy forum where plenty of discussion happens outside the blog.

I encourage everyone to register on the forum and participate. If you have a question you can post it there and get an answer. I check the Forum every day and I much prefer to answer questions in public on the forum where everyone can benefit rather than in private via email.

Right now there are several interesting topics being discussed. There is this thread about the reduced number of loans at Lending Club that was asked by a reader yesterday. I started a new thread this morning about the recent interest rate drop at Prosper. So jump in and give us your 2c worth. And feel free to introduce yourself. Thanks.

can I suggest, instead of a small link to “forum” at the very top of the page, you move the link somewhere more prominent, such as the grey bar where you have New here / investors/ borrowers … etc… and maybe even make it a different color to stand out more.

So, here is a weird question (or two). I believe the maximum an individual can invest at Prosper is limited to $5 million, and $50 million is the max for institutional investors. I’m almost positive that I read WB2 had committed to invest $150 million. WB2 is currently approaching $50 million invested (though I’m not sure how much of that is reinvested interest). Are these limits still in place? Does Prosper set these requirements or is it a government institution (e.g. SEC, state governments, etc)?

Now that is a perfect example of a question that belongs on the forum and not in comments to this article 😉

I would very much like to register on the forum, but I think the “capcha” registration process is broken. Either that or i’m an idiot. The question about the number of “corners in square” makes no sense.
