Prosper Performance Update: October 2016

Today we are sharing performance data for the Prosper portfolio for October 2016. These updates are intended to give our investors important insights into the trends we are seeing, including as it relates to overall performance and estimated returns.

As you will see, estimated return on October 2016 production is just under estimated return for Q3 2016. Also shown in the update, FICO remains approximately 10 points higher than FICO from than its lowest point in 2015 and early 2016.

Additional highlights from the October update include:

  • Vintage prepayment rates continue to track higher for Q2 2016 and Q3 2016 which we believe is tied to the higher pricing and increased underwriting conservatism that was introduced during the first half of 2016.
  • Delinquency for Q1 2015 and Q2 2015 vintages demonstrated improvement vs. prior months (see % Delinquency Per Origination Trend chart). Site changes introduced in October decreased manual pay selection. We will continue to monitor these vintages closely to see if this change has a positive impact on early delinquency patterns.
  • All delinquency and loss patterns since 2013 remain below the loss and delinquency levels experienced in 2012. We believe the lower level of risk is attributable to changes made to the credit risk program at the end of 2012.
  • Cumulative gross charge-offs continue to be above the 2013 trend as a result of a consumer credit environment that is no longer improving as quickly as it had throughout 2013-2014.
