In Lending Club’s early days 100% of the loans were backed by individual investors transacting through our website. As we’ve built our performance track record, we’ve added new ways to invest in Lending Club loans and attracted a broader range of investors including individuals investing through investment vehicles or managed accounts, and institutional investors such as foundations, pension funds, and insurance companies.
The range of investors bring a variety of risk appetites that enable us to facilitate loans across all risk grades, from A to G, and to support new products. We remain committed to our retail investors, and are continually developing new features and functionality to enhance the retail investing experience.
