According to the recent report on the European Alternative Finance Industry made by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, the Swiss online crowdfunding market shows remarkable dynamics having grown from € 16m in 2015 to € 30m in 2016 (up 81%). It is rather diverse as there is a number of platforms from the leading European countries like Germany and France and other operating in Switzerland along with local ones that are strong too. From this point of view, the Swiss investors turn out to be rather experienced in international investments.

By the end of January 2018, the sum of raised investments reached € 2,8m. In total, investors earned € 160.000 by investing in short-term PDL-loans issued in Kazakhstan and Spain.
