My Cash Allocation

Saturday, October 07, 2006

This is how I currently have my "cash" allocated.
I plan on moving much more into Prosper.com, with a final goal of about $1250. While I currently have $750 in my Prosper account, I only have a few hundred in loans. (See my Prosper Loans Funded meter at the top right of the page). I'll talk more about why it's so difficult to fund Prosper loans when I post my full review on Prosper.

A few weeks after Zecco.com goes live, I may move $2500 into a brokerage account, once I'm confident that it's safe. I will clear out my checking and only leave $200. All remaining cash will be distributed between an E-Loan savings account and my Emigrant Direct and HSBC savings accounts.

Zecco looks interesting. It's free?!

20% APY at Prosper? Dude you are tempting me to look into it :)
21.6000 to be exact.

However, remember there is risk associated with this type of "investment". Luckily, I'll be writting a 3 part review on Prosper very soon. The 3rd part will focus on what I've learned and how to minimize risk.

Quick sidenote. Prosper requires only 50 bucks to start.
What's the percentage of defaults on the loans you have?
I'll post each and every loan I have in the upcoming Prosper review.

My default rate is 0 right now.
