The 2015 Cambridge-Chicago Americas Alternative Finance Benchmarking Survey

It is our view that comprehensive, data driven research will enable a greater understanding of the alternative finance and ensure the continued success and growth of this market. As such, we are pleased to announce that CrowdFundBeat have partnered with Cambridge and UChicago to help ensure the success of this study.

This study is also supported by Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), KPMG, CfPA, CFIRA, National Crowdfunding Association of Canada (NCFA), CrowdFundBeat,Media LendIt/Lend Academy, Orchard and Crowdnetic. Participating platforms will be prominently acknowledged in the benchmarking report with their logo displayed when the official report is published in early 2016.  This study is the third regional installment to our highly successful benchmarking research done in the UK and Europe. Our 2015 Americas report will be distributed freely to participating platforms, government agencies, regulators, trade associations, business communities and major media outlets.

We hope that crowdfunding and marketplace lending platforms who are operating in North, Central and South America can contribute to this study by completing our short survey. By participating, you will help provide valuable data to inform evidence-based policymaking and regulation so that the alternative finance industry can grow from strength to strength.
