In this issue of Marketplace Insights, we focus on how marketplace loans might perform during an economic slowdown or recession.
Given the length of the current economic expansion, last year’s stock market dips, and growing recession concerns, investors have begun positioning for a more challenging investment environment. LendingClub’s experience of growth through the post-financial crisis period—to become the marketplace loan industry’s U.S. leader—supports our belief that marketplace loans’ unique features may make them resilient in a range of economic environments.
In this piece we discuss marketplace loans as an asset class, review their historical performance, and discuss what that might mean for how they could perform during an economic downturn. We also highlight how LendingClub is preparing for a more challenging economic environment.
