Hypoport SE: transaction-based business models for private property purchases make good start to 2021

- Volume of transactions on the Europace platform in Q1 2021 up by around 30 per cent on the prior-year period

- Cooperative banks remain the fastest-growing user group with a rise of more than 80 per cent; increase of 35 per cent for the savings banks

- Dr. Klein Privatkunden up by 14 per cent on what had been an exceptionally strong Q1 2020

- Volume of housing transactions supported by the Value AG property valuation platform advances by 16 per cent

Berlin, 21 April 2021: The operational key figures for the Hypoport Group's transaction-based business models for private home-buying again recorded significant double-digit increases in the first few months of 2021 and thus rose at a much faster rate than the market. This strong growth underlines the efficiency gains for users of the digital platform business models and the additional market share captured by Hypoport.

Europace, the largest B2B lending marketplace in Germany for mortgage finance, building finance products and personal loans, saw a substantial increase in the volume of transactions* in the first quarter of 2021. The total volume swelled by 30 per cent to €27 billion, while the transaction volume per sales day** went up even more, by 31 per cent, to over €420 million. Mortgage finance, which is by far the largest product group, saw its transaction volume grow by 34 per cent to €22 billion. In the second-largest product group, building finance, the transaction volume rose by 16 per cent to around €3 billion. The volume in the smallest product group, personal loans, held steady at €1 billion despite the extremely sharp contraction of the market as a whole.

FINMAS, the sub-marketplace for institutions in the savings banks sector, increased its volume of transactions by 35 per cent to more than €2.6 billion in the first three months of 2021. In the cooperative banking sector, institutions used the dedicated GENOPACE sub-marketplace to generate a volume of €3.1 billion, an impressive jump of 82 per cent. Alongside these groups of banks, the volumes generated by non-captive financial product distributors and, in particular, private commercial banks also expanded at a much faster rate than the market, with increases of around 20 per cent and 40 per cent respectively.

In the Private Clients segment, Dr. Klein offers financial product advice at more than 230 locations in Germany, primarily through a franchise system. The volume* brokered by Dr. Klein advanced by 14 per cent to more than €2.7 billion in the first quarter of 2021.

The Value AG property valuation platform, which is part of the Real Estate Platform segment, also reported a further rise in its operational key figure in the first three months of 2021: The value of residential properties classified as suitable for owner occupation that underwent an inspection and appraisal climbed by 16 per cent to €7.7 billion.

Ronald Slabke, Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport SE, is pleased with the successful start to 2021: "As has been the case in previous years, we are delivering double-digit percentage growth rates with our transaction-based business models for private property purchases. Whether in phases of strong economic growth or severe economic risks, such as the current coronavirus crisis, we have captured market share at a rapid rate thanks to the advanced digitalisation of our platforms and services and will continue to do so in 2021 and beyond."
