P2P-Banking.com posted original research of loan originations for May on its site. Zopa tops the list with 57M € in new loans, Ratesetter comes in second with 50.1 M €, Funding Circle in third with 47.3M € and LendInvest in a close fourth with 44.5 M €. Note the remarkable growth of new P2P lending contenders, including Auxmoney, Wellesley and Saving Stream.
According to P2P-Banking.com and P2P Kredite.com publisher Claus Lehmann, “The top four UK services volumes are close together, with Wellesley catching up. I added two new platforms. I do monitor development of p2p lending figures for many markets. Since I already have most of the data on file I can publish statistics on the monthly loan originations for selected p2p lending services.”
P2P-Banking.com suggests that investors living in markets with no or limited choice of local P2P lending services can check this list of marketplace open to international investors.
