INDEX DEFINITION

The CrowdBureau® P2P Online Lending and Digital Banking Index (“Index”) seeks to capture the peer-to-peer online lending and digital banking 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 Index is a rules-based stock index owned, developed and maintained by CrowdBureau Corporation (“CrowdBureau” or the “Index Provider”).  In seeking to provide broad exposure to this emerging portion of the economy, the Index is devised to provide exposure to not only those companies that operate online lending platforms that facilitate peer-to-peer lending, but also U.S. financial institutions with a digital lending platform, social networking platforms and providers of technology and software solutions. Together these firms comprise the peer-to-peer online lending and digital banking ecosystem.

The CrowdBureau® P2P Online Lending and Digital Banking Index (CBLENDT) recorded a gain of 6.79%, to end the week

March 8 – March 12, 2021

The CrowdBureau® P2P Online Lending and Digital Banking Index (CBLENDT) ended the week recording a gain of 6.79%, finishing the week with a value of 98.89.  All three major U.S. equity benchmarks rose higher after the $1.9 stimulus package was signed.  The CBLENDT index has climbed 6.18% month-to-date, and 16.26%, year-to-date.  This performance can be attributed to the returns recorded by the peer-to-peer lending and digital banking platforms (P2P/D) segment of the index, as interest rates rise, the economy slowly recovers, and investors rotate out of technology and software solution stocks.
