Lending Club Welcomes Missouri Investors!

We are pleased to announce that our securities filing has been cleared by the state of Missouri, giving Missourians the opportunity to invest in Lending Club notes starting today.

While researching fun facts about Missouri, I was startled to see several related to the food industry. And since I’m a foodie myself, I could not resist the temptation to include them here:

To start, you must know that the now ubiquitous ice cream cone was invented at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 when an ice cream vendor ran out of cups and asked a waffle vendor to help by rolling up waffles to hold ice cream.

You must also know that barbeque cuisine started right here, in Kansas City, when Henry Perry, the “Father of Kansas City BBQ” started selling smoked meats in an alley stand in the Garment District of the city in 1908.

And finally, you may find interesting the fact that St. Louis is the home of the largest beer producing plant in the nation: Anheuser-Busch.

Now, I’m officially hungry (and thirsty).

Anyhow! We welcome Missourians to Lending Club, now available in 27 states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, 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.

State approvals as of 2009-08-31

Notes are offered by prospectus filed with the SEC.

    Fantastic! Why is it taking so long to get all the other states
    though? With Lending Club’s performance track record, this offer
    should have been cleared in all states a long time ago!
