Happy $400MM To Us!

We’re proud to announce that this week Lending Club passed $400 million in total loan originations, less than four months after reaching $300 million. It’s hard to visualize such a large number, and we’ve had some fun kicking around ways to understand just how much money $400 million is—for example, it could buy 100 million gallons of gas (enough to drive from San Francisco to New York 1 million times!), 200 million Slurpees, or maybe 250 Lamborghini Reventons.

But in all seriousness, reaching $400 million is a big milestone for us, and an exciting way to move into the final months of what has been a tremendous year for Lending Club. Here are some of the highlights of the last few months:

We’ve now paid investors $33,718,754 in interest as of November 2, 2011. Thanks for being a part of Lending Club. We’re thrilled to be joining with you to change the way the world thinks about borrowing and investing, and we can’t wait to celebrate the half-billion mark with you soon!

    Congratulations to the entire Lending Club Team for reaching yet
    another milestone. It seems that your business model is working out
    well for you. I have been investing with Lending Club since 2008
    and I know it has worked out well for me!

  4. Some impressive growth. Good to see active alternative lending
    programs working and growing at a better pace than the banks.

  8. Lendingclub.com has hit another milestone on its way to a bllion
    bucks and beyond at an accelerating pace! Lendingclub is the only
    Cash-Flo engine that pays Principal&Interest payments 260 PAY
    DAYS per YEAR! That’s Every MON.Tues.WED.Thurs.&FRIDAY! If a
    lender-member like myself REINVESTS ALL the Principal Payments that
    means 260 PAY DAYS every year! If a lender-member also REINVESTS
    just part of his after tax INTEREST PAYMENT on his 260 PAY DAYS he
    will also CREATE 260 Mon-Friday RAISE DAYS the following year! Even
    if a MONEY MARKET FUND could be found that could EQUAL the INTEREST
    that we as lender-members get-THAT would only be 1 payment per
    month, just 12 PAY DAYS a year, NOT 260! There’s NO other CASH FLOW
    MACHINE that even comes CLOSE! Q.E.D. Plasticman

  9. Congratulations on yet another year for the Lending Club for
    bringing in very good numbers! Every one on the team deserves a tap
    on back for a job well done. Looking forward to another year of
    great investing!

  10. WOW! Amazing figures. Congratulations! You’ve once again proven
    that you’re a force to reckon with. Keep it up!

  11. Gregg:

    That kind of growth just goes to show that people are discovering
    the power of peer-to-peer lending.

    May 21st, 2012 at 3:32 pm

  12. Mason M:

    Congrats to you guys and gals, in this day and age of iliguidity
    and deflationary pressures, having that flow of funds is an
    impressive feat. Perhaps you can get on a panel and teach these
    blockheads in Washington how to manage our funds the right way,
    hehe, Congrats again.
