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). For the latest 2020 figures, see our publication Marketplace Report Switzerland 2020.
