A member of the Lend Academy forum has created a table sharing the annualized rate of return on 36 month loans based on differing charge off scenarios; the table outlines when returns will become negative at varying interest rates which can in turn be compared to interest rates on loans issued by Lending Club; the findings are valuable to investors who are interested in knowing what might happen to their portfolio if defaults were to increase.  Source
