Owing to an error arising from a change in the P2PFA’s administration arrangements, the dis-aggregated platform-level data for the third quarter of 2016 was not released at the time of the publication of the P2PFA press notice for that period. That data is accessible from the link below, as well as from the related item on the news page of this website. Future such datasets will be released at the same time as the publication of quarterly data.

P2PFA member loanbook data

P2PFA members are moving toward an unparalleled level of data transparency by making their loan books publicly available.  Please see below to links to where you can find this data:

P2PFA member default information:

All P2PFA members use the P2PFA default standard to provide comparable statistics for their default rate.  The definition was established 18th June 2013 and is provided below along with links to Member specific default information:

Definition of Non-Performing Loan:

A loan should be considered to be a ’Non-Performing Loan’, ‘Impaired’ or in ‘Arrears’, where the relevant borrower of the loan is:
– > (a) more than 45 days overdue in an interest payment; or
– > (b) more than 45 days overdue with a principal repayment; or
– > (c) legal action for enforcement of the loan has commenced; or
– > (d) the loan is being or has been renegotiated with a borrower, or
– > (e) the loan has not otherwise been in full compliance. The amount of arrears is the amount overdue for payment in a) and b) above.

Definition of Capital Losses (Default):

A capital loss should include:
– > (a) any portion of a loan that has not been repaid, 120 days following the original loan repayment date;
– > (b) all costs incurred by the lender in relation to the enforcement of a Non-Performing Loan, where such costs are not recovered in full from the relevant borrower;
– > (c) any loan amount where there is a reasonable expectation that the borrower is not going to repay the loan on the original loan repayment date (ie the borrower has gone bankrupt etc).

To be reported on a 12 monthly calendar basis (Jan to Dec);

1)Actual arrears (as a percentage of all outstanding balances from loans made in the calendar year of the loan)
2)Expected defaults (as a percentage of lifetime default rates of amount lent in the calendar year of the loan)

3)Actual defaults (a percentage of the total lent by the platform in the calendar year of the loan)
