Abstract

The 4th UK Alternative Finance Report from the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF), the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, captures the size and growth of UK crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending markets in 2016. This research is based on surveys of more than 8,300 investors and lenders of online alternative finance as well as 77 crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending platforms in the United Kingdom. Based on these findings, the CCAF has provided input to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which is currently reviewing its regulatory regime for crowdfunding in the UK.

Keywords: Alternative Finance, Crowdfunding, Peer-to-Peer Lending, P2P, FinTech, Financial Innovation
