Is Lending Club Available in My State?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions from those thinking of borrowing or investing via Lending Club.
Yes, it can be confusing. Every state has its own laws about investments and securities as well as lending rules and regulations. Here is an up-to-date view of states in which residents can obtain personal loans, invest or trade, via Lending Club as of today:
To invest in Lending Club Prime Consumer Notes, you must reside in one of the following 28 states and meet that state’s financial suitability conditions: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
If your state is not listed above, you may be able to trade notes via FOLIOfn‘s Note trading platform. At this moment, applicants from District of Columbia, Kansas, Maryland, Ohio, Oregon, and Vermont are not eligible to become trading members with FOLIOfn.
Notes offered by prospectus filed with the SEC.
