INDEX DEFINITION

The CrowdBureau® Peer-to-Peer Lending and Equity Crowdfunding Index (“Index”) seeks to capture the peer-to-peer lending and securities based crowdfunding ecosystem by tracking the price and total return performance of publicly traded firms domiciled across the globe but listed for trading in the United States (“U.S.”), including common stock, American Depository Receipts (“ADRs”), American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) and Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs). The Index is designed to be used as the underlying index for financial products such as exchange traded funds and managed account platforms.

The peer-to-peer lending and equity crowdfunding ecosystem consists of companies with business operations that fall into one of the following four segments:  (1) Peer-to-peer lending and equity crowdfunding platforms; (2) Financial institutions with a dedicated peer-to-peer lending platform; (3) Social network(ing) platforms that offer or plan to offer peer-to-peer lending or equity crowdfunding services; and (4) Providers of technology and software solutions to the peer-to-peer lending and equity crowdfunding industry. These four segments encapsulate the peer-to-peer lending and equity crowdfunding ecosystem.

The CrowdBureau® Peer-to-Peer Lending and Equity Crowdfunding Index (CBP2PTR) ended the month of June and the second quarter 2019 on a positive note, posting increases of 3.90% and 10.69%, respectively, as global markets across all major asset classes posted gains even as trade concerns and fears of an economic slowdown persisted.  The Index, which remains ahead with a total return gain of 45.96% since the start of the year, benefited from the favorable stock performance delivered by some of the largest peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders in the US and China while at the same time being disadvantaged by the weak performance of some of China’s marketplace lenders that have been facing challenging market conditions.  (See Chart 1).
