22% YOY growth. $34B origination volume.
Alternative financing hit an all new high in 2016 with $34 billion extended to new clients. The category growth rate has slowed, but it continues to maintain a healthy 22% year-over-year increase. Mainly due to the fact that traditional banks continue to decline well over half of all business loan applications. The new growth comes from the continuing strength of the peer-to-peer market along with a high level of demand from fintech startup teams.
Technology requirements. Increasing regulatory scrutiny.
Alternative funders must be technology-enabled in order to maintain profits as the industry becomes more and more competitive. This is a business that requires fast decisions with correct pricing even with new businesses that have no credit or poor credit. In addition regulatory compliance rules continue to change as the industry gains visibility.
Fintech award winning, alternative financing software system.
Alternative financing has emerged as the “go to” funding option when loan applications get declined by big banks. And in today’s lending environment that’s the vast majority of all business loans. It can be challenging to approve the right accounts with the right pricing in real time. That’s why top funders use specialized asset based lending software, merchant cash advance software and/or invoice factoring software with unique features and functionality to meet the needs of their particular niche.
The increasing demand for alternative funding has triggered tremendous competition, especially in the online space. It’s a category that’s still largely unregulated with wild marketing promises that range from “$500K in as little as 1 day” to “91% approval” to “lowest rates in the industry”. This is one of the reasons the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) is looking closely at all alternative financiers as part of their crack down on payday lending.
