SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingClub Corporation (NYSE: LC), America's largest online marketplace connecting borrowers and investors, today announced the launch of LCX, a first-of-its-kind electronic marketplace designed to connect a broader array of institutional investors to its new digital platform.
LCX delivers dynamic pricing and same day settlement of fully funded whole loans. It continues to unlock the power of the marketplace model by reducing friction in the settlement process, from several weeks to a single day, and allowing faster deployment of capital.
The new platform also offers additional real-time insights on demand at the loan level, and provides the initial infrastructure needed for the development of a secondary market that will improve liquidity and value for this mainstream asset class. This combination of speed, access and transparency represents a substantial innovation in consumer loan transaction technology.
"This is a huge step forward in the evolution of unsecured consumer loans as an asset class," said Valerie Kay, Chief Capital Officer of LendingClub. "LCX joins other LendingClub innovations such as CLUB Certificates and the Select Plus Platform to offer new industry leading products that meet the needs of our growing and diverse investor base."
"As an early adopter of innovative financial technology, we're thrilled to be one of LendingClub's pilot partners as they continue to deliver new ways to access consumer credit," said Elliott Lorenz, CEO and Co-Founder of Edge Focus Partners. "This is a great example of LendingClub listening to and building new solutions for its investors who want dynamic pricing and faster, easier ways to deploy capital. A natural evolution of any asset class is enhanced liquidity through secondary markets and this is a major step in that direction."
LCX is the latest release of LendingClub's industry leading marketplace platform building off the recent announcement of its Select Plus platform. LendingClub now offers loans to institutional investors through four platforms, including Scale, Select, Select Plus and LCX. LendingClub launched its Scale and Select Platform in 2017. LendingClub's Select platform makes it easy for investors to individually select loans based on their own detailed loan criteria. LendingClub's Scale platform allows institutional investors to choose across a broad range of loans at the grade and term level and has led to other LendingClub innovations, such as CLUB Certificates and its securitization program.
