About the Asia-Pacific Alternative Finance Benchmarking Report

The 2017 report has been written in conjunction with the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Alternative Finance, Tsinghua University and ACFS. The 2017 report is an extension of the University of Cambridge’s Alternative Finance Industry 2016 Report in the Asia-Pacific region from 2013-2015.

The Report sheds light on the emergence and development of online alternative finance in the Asia-Pacific. The 2017 release in Australia will present a picture of the development of this industry in Australia.

Last year’s report covered 80% of the Asian Alternative-Finance Market (over 500 platforms) being the first and most comprehensive source of information in this sector.

The results of the online survey completed by its participants this year, captures the size and growth of crowdfunding / P2P-lending markets across Asia and the Pacific over 2016, thereby extending the data shared in last year’s report.

The primary aim of this year’s research is to raise the awareness of this new and emerging industry to the public, policy-makers and regulators.   This event would be relevant to financial institutions, fintech specialists, platform providers, investors, regulators and government representatives.

It also aims to aid governments in creating legislation that will enhance the legitimacy of the Alternative-finance sector, both domestically and in surrounding regions, and enable it to further develop and grow.

Developed by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, The University of Sydney Business School and the Tsinghua University Graduate School at Shenzhen, in collaboration with KPMG, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and CME Group Foundation, the 2016 report is the first benchmarking study of online alternative finance transactions in the Asia-Pacific.
