The following chart lists the loan originations of p2p lending marketplaces in August. Funding Circle leads ahead of Ratesetter and Zopa. Zopa yesterday announced an interest rate cut of 0.2% following the BoE decision to lower interest rates. Zopa warned that new deposits would be slower to lend out, and will take 10 days on average, as it faces a shortage of borrowers. Zopa used to accept 1 percent of applicants, but now approves on 20 percent.The total volume for the reported marketplaces adds up to 336 million Euro. I track the development of p2p lending volumes for many countries. Since I already have most of the data on file I can publish statistics on the monthly loan originations for selected p2p lending services.
Investors living in national markets with no or limited selection of local p2p lending services can check this list of marketplaces open to international investors. Investors can also explore how to make use of current p2p lending cashback offers available.
