RECAP: Higher Returns Through Diversification

Yesterday, over 150 participants took part in our “Higher Returns Through Diversification” webcast. Scott Langmack, the featured speaker, discussed his personal investment strategy in Lending Club Notes that, according to Scott, has allowed him to average an annualized return of 12.5% on his aggregate portfolio since 2008.

During the presentation and Q&A session, Scott shared his research, investment insights, and his “4 Keys to Maximizing Returns.”

Lending Club Notes are offered by a prospectus filed with the SEC.

The views and plans expressed by Mr. Langmack are his own and are not endorsed or adopted by Lending Club.

Returns are based upon a variety of factors including, amount invested, diversification, FICO score and other factors that could affect returns. Your returns may vary. You should review the risks and uncertainties described in the prospectus related to your possible investment in the notes.

    Good information. Diversification is surely a good way to reduce
    your variance / risk… I never thought about making more money
    like this. Losing less makes more!

    I agree diversification reduces risk n leads to higher returns
