Brismo partners with LendingClub to create ‘industry standard’ performance metrics

Published on February 21, 2019
Brismo, the leading international provider of lending performance data, has today announced that standardized performance metrics are available representing the performance of loans made available through LendingClub*.

Using granular loan level disclosure provided by LendingClub, the London-based data vendor has created standardized performance metrics that allow investors to compare the track record of the leading US consumer loan facilitator. This enables investors to review the performance of LendingClub loans alongside other leading facilitators in the non-bank lending sector, and to compare risk and return characteristics across multiple geographies and asset types. A consistent basis for analysis can improve decision-making across the investment process, allowing investors to bring efficiency to due diligence, risk management, risk monitoring, performance benchmarking and portfolio valuation.

Commenting on the announcement Valerie Kay, Chief Capital Officer of LendingClub, said:

“LendingClub continuously looks for ways to improve transparency in the marketplace and the experience for its investors, and this partnership with Brismo marks another important step along that journey. Providing third party-verified performance measurement, that is applied consistently throughout the industry, delivers improved insight and transparency for those seeking to learn more about consumer credit – the asset class that LendingClub has helped deliver to the masses.”


Rupert Taylor, founder and CEO of Brismo, explained:


“Facilitators can improve diversification of funding if they can communicate performance in a format that is easy to understand to the widest possible audience. We look forward to working with LendingClub to help them deliver best in class disclosure of their asset performance.”
