First loans for sale on Lending Club’s Note Trading Platform

A day after the start of the secondary market (see: “Lending Club allows lenders to trade their investments“) of, today 3 loans are offered for sale. I doubt that these Lendingclub loans will find a buyer, since they are all more then 60 days late and the discounts of the asking price versus the outstanding interest and accrued interest are rather small (13.64% to 23.13%). But maybe someone will purchase the first note (it’s only 20 US$) just to experience and test the process.

There have also been reports by lenders, that do not fit the new requirements, but were able to sign up at FolioFn, raising the question if these lenders can buy notes even if they are prohibited from lending themselves.
