Cambridge Launches Europe Wide Alternative Finance Benchmarking Survey

CrowdFunding News Beat UK.  European Alternative Finance Benchmarking Survey by the University of Cambridge in partnership with EY.  f0a9e82c-2dfb-49ab-ac83-bd09a9f6edcf (1)
Focusing on crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending activities, this survey aims to collect aggregate-level data to measure the size and the growth of the alternative finance markets in Europe between 2012 and 2014.

The European Alternative Finance Benchmarking Report will be published in January 2015 and distributed freely to participating platforms, government agencies, financial regulators, industrial trade associations, business communities and major media outlets.

The survey consists of only 10 questions and should take no more than 5 minutes to complete, although it may require you to look up or add up figures from your business activity. All identifying information concerning your platform will be stripped from the analytical processes. After the survey is completed, your data will be encrypted and stored safely to ensure the continued anonymity and confidentiality of participating firms. Only the University of Cambridge will have access to the research database.

All participating platforms will be prominently acknowledged in the benchmarking report with logo display and listing in the European Alternative Finance Platform Directory. Should you have any questions concerning the survey or the final report, please do not hesitate to contact Bryan Zhang at or Robert Wardrop at .
