The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) at University of Cambridge Judge Business School, Asian Development Bank Institute and Academy of Internet Finance, Zhejiang University are collaborating on the Third Asia-Pacific Region Alternative Finance Industry Survey. The research will cover all forms of alternative finance including crowdfunding, peer to peer (marketplace) lending, reward based and other new forms of finance outside of the traditional financial system across the Asia-Pacific region.
Dr. Hung-Yi Chen, Asia-Pacific Region Manager at CCAF, said this year’s survey builds on the series of benchmarking reports with the primary purpose to provide the best available market data and analysis of the industry for policymakers and regulators globally.
“It is our pleasure to partner with Asian Development Bank Institute and Academy of Internet Finance, Zhejiang University to conduct this study and further tracking emerging dynamics and developments within this fast changing industry in Asia-Pacific Region”
The Asia Pacific region has experienced dramatic growth in alternative finance in recent years. The CCAF research will seek to provide the best source of data on a country by country basis. As in years past, this data will be referenced and used by policymakers globally to assess and guide new forms of finance.
Last year’s report, entitled Cultivating Growth, gathered survey data from 628 alternative finance platforms operating in 17 Asia-Pacific countries and regions. This year’s study is expected to dive even deeper into the growth and dynamics of the APAC alternative finance market.
The Third Asia-Pacific Region Alternative Finance Industry Survey is scheduled to close on 6th July 2018. The objective is to capture the key trends including the development, size, transaction volume and growth of alternative finance across Asia-Pacific.
The research will be made publicly available in Q3-Q4 of this year. The study seeks to facilitate dialogue and learning between industry associations and key stakeholders, while raising awareness of the availability of alternative finance both for consumers and business.
The findings will be presented in aggregate form either by country, region or alternative finance models and no individual platform data will be divulged.
