Global AltFi benchmarking report Apr 2020 - Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance Publishes First Global Report on Alternative Finance: Over $300 Billion in Volume in 2018

Benchmarking Study Tallies $304.5 Billion in Alternative Finance Transaction Volumes During 2018

The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF), part of the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, has published the single most comprehensive report on the evolution of alternative finance. The benchmarking report provides unique detail and insight into the changing landscape of Fintech and digital finance.

The CCAF benchmarking report was supported by Invesco, the Inter-American Development Bank, IDB Invest (the private sector institution of the IDB Group) and CME Group.

CCAF incorporated data from approximately 1220 different firms representing the largest data-set every collected covering Fintech. The areas of alternative finance include peer to peer (marketplace) lending, balance sheet lending, debt-based securities, invoice trading and equity crowdfunding. CCAF noted an increase in the number of firms operating in multiple jurisdictions as the sector matures and adapts.

It is interesting to note that global transaction volumes declined from 2017 ($419 billion) but this was largely due to a rapid shift in China – the largest alternative finance market in the world. Excluding China, global transaction volume grew by 48% in 2018.

The top three markets reflect prior years:

  • China – $215.37 billion
  • United States – $61 billion
  • United Kingdom – $10.4 billion

As covered by the report, four other countries topped the $1 billion threshold of alternative finance market volume in 2018:

  • the Netherlands – $1.8billion
  • Indonesia – $1.45 billion
  • Germany – $1.27 billion
  • Australia – $1.16 billion
  • Japan – $1.07 billion
  • For the first time, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) also surpassed this threshold, as a region – $1.81 billion
  • Latvia and Estonia ranked third and fourth respectively in terms of per capita penetration but were 24th and 29th in terms of total volumes.

The findings suggest that higher alternative finance volumes per capita are associated with higher economic development, higher levels of perceived regulation adequacy, as well as higher levels of social trust in the society.
