What happens if Lending Club goes out of business?

« Go Back


Lending Club services the borrower loans that correspond to Notes held in investor accounts.  Lending Club collects loan payments from borrowers and distributes those payments net of fees to investors in the corresponding Notes. If Lending Club were to go out of business, investors’ ability to receive principal and interest payments on their Notes may be substantially impaired.
We have taken steps to protect investors and borrowers if Lending Club were to go out of business.  For example, we have executed a backup servicing agreement with Portfolio Financial Servicing Company (“PFSC”).  Under this agreement, PFSC has agreed to service the loans as a back-up servicer.

"The interest rate on my loan through Lending Club is a third less than what I was paying before, and it’s very satisfying to know that there is an end date for being done with my debt."
