Index values are published as an annualised return, measuring what an equal time-weighted exposure to every loan originated by the participating platforms would have generated over the preceding 12 month period. The return has been calculated after fees and is expressed net of losses. Index calculations are based on loan level data from:

  • Funding Circle
  • Market Invoice
  • RateSetter
  • Zopa

AltFi Data’s volume indices are a subset of the ‘AltFi Data Analytics’ and ‘MarketWatch’ subscription products offering a detailed view of tech enabled origination volumes across UK, Europe, USA and Australasia. Origination data comes primarily from data reported directly to AltFi Data by originators but also includes data published online. ‘AltFi Data Verified’ status denotes the platforms that subscribe to our asset performance verification services enabling us to scrutinise loan level detail. For other platforms these origination figures have not been corroborated.
