Summary

Table of Contents

This reviews the peer-to-peer lending sector. We quantify the scale of lending, historical growth rates, default rates and returns offered to savers while reviewing key factors behind these figures, looking at the UK and internationally.

We also carry out an in-depth analysis of the relevant drivers of peer-to-peer lending growth – including wider trends in banking and lending, other peer-to-peer trends and the regulatory environment. Our view of the outlook for the industry is based on this analysis of historical trends and drivers.

Peer-to-peer lending is an important and high-profile trend in the banking sector. In just a few years, platforms have emerged which have facilitated hundreds of millions of pounds, made mainly by consumers to other consumers and to small businesses.

The industry is frequently mentioned in the press with comments having particular focus on:
- The level of returns which it offers to savers, which are generally far higher than those from conventional banks
- The degree of risk that savers are incurring to obtain these returns and, in particular, the risk that returns may be impaired by future widespread default.

This report explores the background to these and other issues, exploring what has happened in the industry to key metrics such as levels of lending, returns and default rates, and the factors which lie behind trends.

It also examines the different business models of the main platforms, their target segments and performance and sets out our views on how we believe the peer-to-peer lending market could develop in future.
