Lending Club is the “world’s largest online marketplace.” The platform connects borrowers with investors in a streamlined, low friction process that have seen growing acceptance by consumers. The company stated:
“Borrowers access lower interest rate loans through a fast and easy online or mobile interface. Investors provide the capital to enable many of the loans in exchange for earning interest. We operate fully online with no branch infrastructure, and use technology to lower cost and deliver an amazing experience. We pass the cost savings to borrowers in the form of lower rates and investors in the form of attractive returns. We’re transforming the banking system into a frictionless, transparent and highly efficient online marketplace, helping people achieve their financial goals every day.”
Lending Club became public at the end of 2014. Check out the company’s infographic, From Zero to $13 Billion, below.
