One of the goals of the Swiss Marketplace Lending Association is to increase the transparency of the market for private and professional investors. Understanding the risks and returns of investments in marketplace lending is essential for the evolution of the Swiss market. The SMLA therefore established common definitions for risk and return figures (see Code of Conduct).

Volumes and number of loans (SMLA members)

The total loan volume issued by SMLA members in 2018 was CHF 182.5m. From January to August 2019, the total loan volume reached CHF 161.3m. The volume of new loans (monthly)and number of loans (quarterly) can be seen below.

 Risk / Return data (SMLA members)

Please find below the default rates and returns of loans on plattforms of SMLA members. The data is aggregated according to the respective vintage (year, in which the loan was paid out) and calculated as of 31 December 2018. The data can be downloaded here as XLS file.
