Growing Alternate Lending Market

Over a year ago, I posted on an IOSCO report on the small but growing crowd-funding and P2P lending market. The University of Cambridge and EY issued a report last month which highlighted the growth in the sector putting its size at €3 billion in 2014 and predicting a growth to over €7 billion in 2015.

The UK is the largest market by far with about 75% of the deals originating from there, as the graph below from the report shows.

An interesting market, one worth keeping an eye on.
