Top 5 UK P2P Platform by Market Share
|Rank||Platform||Last 3 Months Market Share||Month to Date Volume||Cumulative Origination|
The Liberum AltFi Volume Index UK had its second largest month of 2015 with £245m lent in September. The surge in loan transactions comes as a result of various flourishing sectors within the UK Alternative Finance arena, particularly as peer to peer consumer lending, invoice financing and equity crowdfunding – which each posted a record month of financing.
The top 3 UK marketplace lending platforms by “last 3 month market share” each enjoyed a record month, contributing a substantial 65% of September’s volume. The sharp increase in volume in September also steered the index to a record quarter of loan origination with 11% growth from the previous quarter.
October has thus far provided several landmark moments for RateSetter as the platform celebrated 5 years of successful lending operations and its passing of the £800m mark in cumulative loan origination. To add further context to the platform’s strong growth, RateSetter topped £360m in cumulative loan financing after four years of lending, and the platform has suggested that it expects to top £500m of lending in 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.
