Zopa is approaching the £1bn mark in cumulative originations that is likely to be fulfilled towards the end of August. RateSetter is currently topping month to date volume, however, we have seen some platform volumes accelerate at various points in a month so predictions may be inaccurate on an end of month basis.

Moving onto the returns generated from Marketplace lending, the Liberum AltFi Returns Index (LARI) currently stands at 5.23%.

Meanwhile over in equity crowdfunding AltFi Data has looked into crowdfunded companies using Companies House data to discover if these businesses are still active, have overdue accounts/returns or have become dissolved. Interestingly this information is not provided by equity crowdfunding platforms in a similar standardized format of default statistics provided by P2PFA members.
