Providing you with more information. Weekly Lending Review

Week 11: 9 – 15 March 2015

Over the past week we have been using a new system to help you assess the quality of any loans that have defaulted, by improving the loan comments you see in your summary page. We hope this is useful going forward and look forward to hearing your feedback on our new system.

New loans available to you

There are currently 73 loan requests on the marketplace which are all available for you to lend to.

The total value of new Funding Circle loans was £11,219,800, averaging at £57,537 per loan. The largest loan value was £325,000 and the smallest loan value was £5,000.

Business loans still available for bidding on for the next 3 days or more:

Weekly marketplace trends

These graphs show the most recent activity on the marketplace. The average gross yield graph is reported weekly and shows a rolling two week average of gross yields. This calculation assumes you reinvest your interest each month and therefore includes the compound interest you earn. Number of loans, value of loans and amount lent are reported weekly. The dates on the graph should be read as ‘week beginning’, for example: 9-Mar represents the week of 9th – 15th March 2015.

Providing more information around defaulted loans

If you have any defaulted loans you may have noticed that we now apply a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) rating system, also known as a Traffic Light system, in the Loan Comments on your dashboard. The purpose of the new system is to help you assess the quality of your defaulted loans, and your expected return over a certain period of time.

One thought on “Providing you with more information. Weekly Lending Review

  1. Hello,

    Does the “Weekly average gross yield” include whole loans? Because I really feel the ever increasing proportion of whole loans is having a very detrimental impact on the yield on the partial loan market.

    How is that “peer to peer” lending anyway?
