Alternative Lending

I wrote this piece of research to look at the explosive growth of the Peer to Peer Finance market. Its intention is to examine the growth, trends and dynamics within the UK alternative finance sector.

This report aims to summarize what is a rapidly evolving and highly diverse model of finance, which has more than doubled in size year on year from £267 million in 2012 to £1.74 billion in 2014. The report explores in detail:

  • The great expectations for the alternative finance Industry with some market forecasts
  • Who the key players are in the UK P2P Market
  • The advantages for investors
  • Why people and organisations seeking money are turning to alternative finance platforms
  • A comparison of P2P platforms vs the Banks
