Thank you for participating in the 2017 Asia-Pacific Alternative Finance Industry Survey.

The 2016-2017 Asia-Pacific Alternative Finance Industry Survey is being collected jointly by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance and Cambridge Judge Business School, the Tsinghua University Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, and the Australian Centre for Financial Studies (ACFS) at Monash Business School.

This study builds upon the success of our inaugural report, "Harnessing Potential" and will highlight the size, growth and key market trends of the online alternative finance market across the Asia-Pacific region. 

The data collected will be handled with confidentiality and all data will be aggregated into a final report scheduled to publish in Q2 2017. The aggregate report will be disseminated freely across governments, regulators, trade associations and major media outlets to inform policy and raise public awareness of alternative finance.

This benchmarking survey is supported by a wide array of different industry Research Partners including; the CME (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) Group Foundation, Wangdaizhijia, Zhongguancun Crowdfunding Union, Hujintonxunshe, P2P EYE, Japan Crowdfunding Council, Taiwan Fintech Association, Zhongguancun Crowdfunding Union, Crowdfunding Institute of Australia, LendIt, New Zealand Crowdfunding Society, Crowdfund Asia Association, Crowdsourcing Week, FinTech Hong Kong, CrowdfundInsider, Ahmedabad University, 25fifteen, Crowdfunding Association of Malaysia, Fintech Australia, Fishburners, h2, Melbourne Fintech, Otoritas Jasa Keuangan, Singapore Fintech Association, Stone and Chalk and Tyro Fintech Hub

All participating platforms will be given the option to have their logo displayed in the final report; all findings will be presented in aggregation (e.g. by model and country).
