CrowdProperty becomes the first development lender to provide standardised performance metrics using Brismo

Published on December 5, 2018


CrowdProperty has become the latest peer-to-peer loan originator to disclose their lending performance using Brismo’s methodology. In doing so they have become the first real estate development lender to adhere to an independent performance standard.


Brismo recently added a series of property specific metrics to supplement their existing analysis of consumer, SME, and receivables loans. This enables the performance of real estate loans to be compared alongside other asset types. As a result, the performance of loans originated by CrowdProperty can now be compared alongside loans from other leading originators. This will enable investors, both institutional and retail, to make informed investment decisions based on standardised performance metrics.


Commenting on the announcement Mike Bristow, CEO and Co-Founder of CrowdProperty said:

“At CrowdProperty we support the FCA’s recent call for consistent disclosure in the peer to peer lending sector. Independently verified performance metrics bring efficiency to the investment process, support our segment-leading disclosure standards, validate our 100% track record and strong returns performance, and underline our commitment to be held accountable for the performance of every loan that we originate both historically and going forward.”


Rupert Taylor, founder and CEO of Brismo, explained:
“The FCA’s recent consultation paper underlined how important it is that retail investors should be able to compare the risks and returns of lending between platforms. Indeed this requirement is just as fundamental to retail investors as it is to the institutional market. Standardised performance measurement will allow CrowdProperty to advertise the excellent performance of the loans that they originate in a format that enables investors to make informed decisions.”
