Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
We have another extensive roundup of articles for you this week. I would like to highlight the article by Anil at Random Thoughts. Anil did some quite detailed analysis of the 36-month vs 60-month loans on Lending Club and came to the conclusion that the 60-month loans are already underperforming the traditional 36-month loans. This is essential reading for any Lending Club investor, particularly those with a concentration of the 60-month loans. Enjoy your weekend.
