Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "Alternative finance is an umbrella term, covering a very diverse market of various innovative financial models."
The methodology is clarified by the source as follows: "[...] the Cambridge-Nesta research team administered the 2015 UK Alternative Finance Industry Tracking Survey at the beginning of January 2016. This was carried out to collect actual transactional numbers from all four quarters of 2015, directly from alternative finance platforms, rather than projected Q4 figures as in previous studies. With the support from the online alternative finance industry, and generous help of our partners, which included the Peer-to-Peer Finance Association (P2PFA), the UK Crowdfunding Association (UKCFA) and Innovate Finance, the research team was able to successfully survey 94 leading alternative finance platforms in the UK, over the course of two weeks, capturing over 95% of the visible UK online alternative finance market."
