Today, we are thrilled to announce the completion of our acquisition of Radius Bancorp, Inc. (“Radius”). In February 2020, we announced our intent to acquire Radius and shared how we can grow and deepen our customer relationships with a marketplace bank. Less than a year later, with the completion of this acquisition, LendingClub becomes the only full-spectrum fintech marketplace bank, and the first public U.S. neobank.
This is a historic day for LendingClub and a true watershed moment for the industry. The move to digital-first banking is accelerating, and we are now positioned to capture that trend to grow our membership base, to more deeply engage with our existing 3 million members, and to help them keep more of what they earn and earn more on what they keep. By bringing together the unique assets of these two industry-leading businesses we can build on our history of improving the financial health of everyday Americans while significantly accelerating our growth trajectory.
As one of the original fintech disruptors born out of the Great Recession, we embarked on a mission to transform the banking system. Over a decade later, we’ve successfully expanded access to affordable credit through our financial products including personal loans, auto refinancing, small business and patient solutions. With this acquisition, our work continues. We are building on our 14-year history of helping more than 3 million members on their path to financial health to usher in a new era of banking. As we work to integrate the Radius experience into the fabric of our operations, the day-to-day user experience for our members won’t change. You can still expect the same service and support you have come to rely on at LendingClub and, in the near future, new products and services designed to find you savings.
We can’t wait to unlock even more value for members and investors. Stay tuned for more!
