Alternative investment ops gaining pace, OFF3R

Equity crowdfunding platforms raised £216.25 million and P2P facilitated a combined lending of £2.6 billion over the last year, according to OFF3R research. The marketplace for alternative investments has launched an index outlining month-on-month performances of equity crowdfunding and P2P lending platforms. It analysed the likes of Seedrs, Crowdcube, Syndicate Room, Angels Den, Envestors and The House Crowd. The P2P lending platforms examined were Zopa, Landbay, RateSetter, ArchOver, Marketinvoice, Lending Works, Funding Circle and Thin Cats.

Lex Deak, CEO and co-founder at OFF3R, says: “Traditional investors have had a tough year: interest rates hit record lows, inflation rates are set to increase and the economy is suffering from Brexit uncertainty. These events alongside low returns are encouraging investors to consider alternative investment options.”

He adds: “As the market matures investors would like to see larger businesses turning to the crowd which may put pressure on the current £4 million limit. At the same time, we should see more standardisation in the way in which account and finance information is presented. This will make it easier for investors to be able to compare opportunities. P2P continues to be popular with investors, the market increased amounts lent during the post-Brexit period, with September being the strongest performing month on record with £234 million being lent. The Government has bought into its potential and the market is increasingly robust.”
