– More than 25 per cent increase in the volume of premiums related to insurance portfolios migrated to the SMART INSUR platform
Credit Platform segment: In 2021, Europace increased its transaction volume* by a substantial 14 per cent to €102 billion. This is the first time in the Company’s history that the total volume has exceeded the €100 billion mark. The transaction volume per sales day** also rose by 14 per cent to reach €400 million. Mortgage finance, which is by far the largest product group, saw its transaction volume grow by 17 per cent to €85 billion. In the second-largest product group, building finance, the transaction volume held steady at €13 billion even though the market as a whole shrank. The volume in the smallest product group, personal loans, went up by 17 per cent to €3 billion despite the significant weakness of the overall market.
FINMAS, the sub-marketplace for institutions in the savings banks sector, increased its volume of transactions by 26 per cent to €10.5 billion in 2021. In the cooperative banking sector, institutions used the dedicated GENOPACE sub-marketplace to generate a volume of €12.6 billion, an impressive jump of 55 per cent. Alongside these groups of banks, the volume generated by non-captive financial product distributors and private commercial banks also expanded at a much faster rate than the market, with increases of nearly 10 per cent and nearly 15 per cent respectively.
Private Clients segment: The volume of new loans brokered by Dr. Klein* in 2021 amounted to €9.9 billion, an advance of 9 per cent compared with what had been a very strong 2020.
Ronald Slabke, Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport SE, expressed his satisfaction with the Hypoport Group’s operating performance in the second half of the year against a backdrop of muted market conditions: “Whereas the respective markets as a whole expanded only slightly, or even contracted slightly, we were able to significantly increase the volumes on our B2B platforms in 2021. Europace has reached a major milestone by exceeding the €100 billion mark. These successes are all the more remarkable given that, in the case of our business models that help private individuals to purchase residential property, we found that it took much longer for properties to sell from the summer months onwards even though the supply of new properties remained constant. This was due to a noticeably longer holiday period and uncertainty among property buyers created by the German election. Moreover, property sellers were setting much higher asking prices, so properties took longer to sell. By contrast, the housing industry and small and medium-sized enterprises in Germany took advantage of modestly rising interest rates plus improved government funding in 2021 to engage in interest-rate hedging and many of them sought advice on how to access government funding.”
Slabke is also positive about the prospects for the Company’s operating performance in 2022: “Thanks to the technological edge provided to the credit, property and insurance industries by our B2B platforms, we anticipate that our growth rates will again be significantly above those of the respective markets this year. We now have a highly diverse range of business models within the Hypoport Group, making us increasingly immune to the temporary ups and downs in individual markets.”
