What we do
P2PMarketData was launched in 2018 to increase transparency in the alternative finance industry. Since then, our core mission has stayed the same.
We strive to live out our mission by focusing on two pillars:
- We aggregate data from and about platforms, analyse it and make it available to both investors and fundraisers/borrowers.
- We develop learning material to educate our readers on relevant topics within alternative finance.
Our primary focus is peer-to-peer lending, real estate crowdfunding and start-up equity crowdfunding, but the FinTech industry is changing fast – and as long-term observers and analysts of the industry, we know we must be ready to change with it. As technology develops and enables new business models, we are therefore striving to expand our focus and be forerunners on recent trends. An example of this could be crypto lending. However, as we aim for long-term success, an essential part of our DNA is to be a value-driven organisation. This means we always want to make sure we do not compromise our core values when we aggregate, analyse, and present data or develop state-of-the-art learning environments.
How we do it
Our vision is to make P2PMarketData the leading source on peer-to-peer lending, real estate crowdfunding, and start-up equity for both investors and fundraisers/borrowers. We work towards this vision by focusing on three core values:
- We seek the facts and provide original and valuable insights
- We are objective and precise in our reporting
- We remain strict editorial independence for all our content
- We believe it is best to do a few things very well, so we concentrate our business on improving our two pillars
- We develop services that are easy to use and understand
- We know the industry – and what we do, we do well
Why we do it
We genuinely believe that peer-to-peer lending, real estate crowdfunding, and start-up equity crowdfunding can help democratise the investing process. Investing in loans, real estate, and start-ups should be for the many – and not just institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals. To contribute to this movement transparency and knowledge are essential. We go to work every day to push the industry in that direction.
P2PMarketData in the Media and Research Projects
We regularly get inquiries about the use of our data from both journalists and researchers, and our data has been featured in both research papers (e.g. When Online Lending Meets Real Estate: Examining Investment Decisions in Lending-Based Real Estate Crowdfunding and An Overview of Peer-to-Peer Lending), research reports (e.g. Tokenisation: the future of real estate investment? from the University of Oxford and Economic Outlook for Southeast Asia, China and India 2020 from the OECD), and financial news media like Bloomberg and Yahoo Finance as well as a variety of local news media focused on FinTech and finance.
We are thrilled when journalists and scientists show interest in our data and (almost) always open to sharing our data if you have a worthy purpose. Therefore, if you are interested in using our data for either science or reporting, please contact our founder Martin Christensen at email@example.com.
