Top 5 UK P2P Platforms by Market Share Rank
Last 3 Month Market Share
Month to Date Volume
LendInvest have enjoyed a strong start to the month with over £17.8m in loan financing together with the announcement of Bart Boezeman appointed as Chief Marketing Officer. Following Zopa’s industry record breaking month for volume originations in April (£45.4m), performance so far this month has lagged other prominent UK platforms. However, we could expect to see a surge in Zopa’s volumes as May proceeds as a result of increasing institutional involvement.
According to the Liberum AltFi Volume Index, the top 5 UK platforms by 3 month market share command 81% of UK market share – a significant proportion of the market. The five platforms offer a diverse range of products to investors in the UK marketplace lending industry including consumer, SME, property and invoice financing.
The Liberum AltFi Financial Disruptors Index tracks companies that have been leading a new wave of innovation in financial services. The 3 month return for the index currently stands at 4.7%, a return lower that that reported in the last lending Review. Weak stock performance for OnDeck and NationStar Mortgage Holdings contributed to underperformance of the LAFDI against the MSCI world index.
In the previous lending review AltFi Data published their prediction on the trajectory of UK Cumulative volumes in 2015. In a similar analysis for the rest of the European industry we predict that industry volume in Europe (ex UK) will breakthrough through €1bn in July 2015.
AltFi is returning to Amsterdam for its second annual Summit in the city. The inaugural event last year was a roaring success, with key figures from across Continental Europe's alternative finance and digital banking sectors highlighted. These included Jeroen Broekema, managing director of Funding Circle Netherlands, and Mieke van Engelen, head of innovative partnerships at ABN AMRO's standalone lending platform, New10.
