Today we are sharing performance data from the Prosper portfolio for July 2017.
Our risk team implemented a credit tightening in July aimed at removing certain populations of borrowers from originations on a go-forward basis. As a result of this credit tightening, the overall distribution of the book shifted slightly towards lower risk loans. This slight shift resulted in an overall portfolio coupon decrease of 45bps and an overall return estimate decrease of 26bps.
Additional highlights from the July Update include:
- Charge-off levels in 2016H2 vintages continue to show meaningful improvement compared to 2016H1 vintages. We believe this is a result of a number of credit policy changes and tightening implemented in response to incremental stress that had been observed in the late 2015 and early 2016 vintages.
- Periodic delinquencies moved higher for 2016 and 2017 vintages. While this is expected for the younger vintages as they move towards peak delinquency months, this was a reversal of the trend for 2016Q2 and 2016Q3 vintages. We believe this is due, at least in part, to the overall consumer credit environment returning to more normalized levels of delinquency following years of below average delinquency and stress. We continue to keep a close watch on broader trends and are proactively changing credit policy in an effort to address future consumer stress as well as any incremental stress observed in prior vintages.
