The new Marketplace Lending Report Switzerland 2022 reveals the market volume of swiss marketplace lending platforms in Switzerland for the year 2021. You can download the latest report here:
The total volume of new debt capital issued on online platforms in 2021 reached approximately CHF 18.5bn as shown in Table 1. Market volumes in 2021 are close to 3.5 times higher than in 2017, representing an annual average growth rate of about 36%.
For the first time, the report includes the volume estimates for money market transactions. This segment’s volume reached CHF 85.0bn in 2021, representing more than 80% of the total marketplace lending volume. Table 1 does not inclued the total money market volume. First of all, the maturities of such transactions are substantially lower than in any other loan segment, making comparisons difficult. Secondly, the publicly available volumes include transactions worldwide, whereas the market figures of all other loan segments cover Switzerland only.
The study is a joint publication by the Lucerne School of Business and the Swiss Marketplace Lending Association (SMLA). The publication aims to highlight the increasing economic relevance of the Swiss online financing market and to increase market transparency. Numerous Swiss platforms have made this publication possible by providing data for research purposes.
