If you have been reading my blog for a while you will have seen many, many references to the p2p lending statistics site Lendstats.com. I use it daily and I have done a great deal of research on Lendstats over the last 18 months.
But I have had a couple of emails lately from investors who feel a bit overwhelmed when they visit Lendstats and don’t really know how to get started. So, yesterday I recorded a video to help people get a feel for the site. The video is long at just under 15 minutes but I really only cover what I consider to be the essential pieces of Lendstats. Let me know what you think.
[Update: Lendstats no longer works for analyzing the Prosper loan history. There is a new site called Prosper Stats that provides even more functionality. You should read my initial Prosper Stats review if you are Prosper investor.]
