Free Webinar: Personal Loans as Investment Alternative

by Prosper on 08/16/11

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. Social lending continues to increase month-over-month as many investors consider social lending as an alternative investment. Prosper’s high-yield, short-duration portfolios can help investors protect and grow their investments in these changing times.

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.

Who:

Joseph Toms, Chief Investment Officer, Prosper Marketplace, Inc.: a 25-year investment management veteran who has developed and led investment research and marketing strategies and successfully managed billions of dollars for leading U.S. and European investment institutions.

Jim Catlin, Chief Risk Officer, Prosper Marketplace, Inc.: a 16-year veteran in credit risk management and former risk management executive at Capital One. Jim is responsible for customer acquisition and risk management for Prosper.
