Non-Bank Lenders Gaining Significant Market Share in the Netherlands

Non-bank lenders in the Netherlands have been capitalizing on the global financial crisis and decreased lending from banks; Jeroen van Hessen’s Dutch Mortgage Funding Company has been a leader in non-bank mortgage lending, a market that now attributes 20% of the 662 billion euros ($693 billion) mortgage market to non-bank lenders; Hessen was a market leader in the non-bank lending movement which has attracted interest from institutional investors willing to bypass traditional channels for higher returns; the effects from non-bank entrants have begun to show more significantly in the mortgage lending market where market share for mortgage originations from the region’s top three banks fell below 50% for the first time in 2016; non-bank lending in the Netherlands has also increased interest from surrounding European investors familiar with non-bank platforms.  Source
