Since launching in the UK in 2014 our methodology has gained traction globally. We now cover over 65% of UK and European marketplace lending, over 50% of US marketplace lending, and are extending coverage to additional geographies, origination models, and loan types. We recently expanded into ‘direct lending’ and have also created metrics dedicated to reviewing the performance of real estate lenders.

We are the sole providers of a standardised, like for like comparable, loan performance track record enabling for standardised measurement of both return and risk.

Loan originators can create meaningful, verified performance metrics, giving them wider access to capital, reducing their cost of funding, and fulfilling regulatory obligations. Meanwhile Investors can deploy capital more productively with enhanced returns, lower costs, and mitigation of risks.
