Today we are sharing performance data from the Prosper portfolio for January 2018.
Credit tightening continues in the riskier grades, shifting the portfolio to an increased concentration of lower risk assets: 54.3% of assets were rated AA-B in January vs. 49.5% in 2017 Q4 and 41.8% in 2017.
Additional highlights from the January update include:
- The shift in volume resulted in original WA Borrower Rate on the portfolio declining by 31bps from the December level. Additionally, WA FICO increased from 715 in 2017 Q4 to 718 in January.
- The lower risk composition of the 2017 Q4 book was driven by elevated delinquency rates observed in the higher risk segments of the portfolio in the first 3 quarters of 2017. Low risk asset performance the first 3 quarters of 2017 was stable. We continue to monitor the portfolio and take action as warranted.
