-=Lending Club (LC) reported earnings on Wed 19 Feb 20 (b/o)




LendingClub Gives Up On "Fintech" Charter, Pays $185M To Buy Bank Instead
The fintech has long partnered with Utah-based WebBank so that it can offer loans across the country without getting licensed in each state.

 LendingClub announced an agreement Tuesday to buy Radius Bancorp in a deal that will give the San Francisco-based fintech the bank charter it has been seeking.

The stock-and-cash transaction, which is valued at $185 million, represents a landmark for the U.S. online lending industry. LendingClub would become the first company in the sector’s history to purchase a bank.

Boston-based Radius is a $1.4 billion-asset company with a reputation as an innovator in digital banking. LendingClub said in a press release that the acquisition will allow for the creation of a scaled-up, digitally native bank that will enable customers to pay less when borrowing and earn more when saving.
