Executives Discuss Global Markets and Role of Social Lending as Investment Alternative in Changing Economy

Recent uncertainty and turmoil in the financial markets is causing investors to re-evaluate their portfolios and the risk levels of the asset classes they hold.

For discussion:

  • What global markets are forecasting and the implications for investment portfolios;
  • How Prosper’s strict credit policy has delivered great returns for investors;
  • How Prosper’s high-yield current income portfolios can play an important role in minimizing overall portfolio volatility while providing vital cash income;
  • How Prosper’s conservative approach to underwriting can help mitigate the impact of any future deterioration in global economic growth.
