AltFi Data Predicts Crowdfunding Blast-Off In 2016

2016 AltFi prediction

AltFi Date has announced its predictions for 2106. AltFi, with its Liberum association, has some of the best data in the market. These predictions are made using a regression analysis algorithm, with a qualitative overlay. The basic message is: stand by for blast-off. We’ll be bringing you Money&Co. CEO Nicola Horlick’s predictions next week. Meanwhile, check out our communication director’s take on the year ahead.


Prediction highlights:

  • £4.3bn of 2016 industry origination – that’s 53% growth year on year. This is down from 82% last year.
  • Zopa to lend its two billionth pound towards the end of the year.
  • Proplend to grow the most on a percentage basis with a massive 208% year on year growth, albeit from a low base.
  • Zopa the platform that will originate the most, just shy of £1bn
  • Funding Circle, Zopa and RateSetter within touching distance of originating £1bn over the 12 months.

The article continues: 

“As ever, predicting the future in such a fast evolving industry is not easy. Platforms are constantly innovating, launching new product lines and tweaking their business models. Some current examples would include Zopa flagging that it may allow retail investors to take non Safeguard covered loans and the proliferation of listed platform funds in a bid for further growth and increased profitability. It is impossible to know exactly what these innovations will be and what impact they might have on industry origination volume – it is therefore likely that there will be significant variance in individual platform predictions versus eventual outcomes.”
