Berlin, 13 April 2022: The Hypoport Group's operational key figures show further strong growth. Of particular note were the double-digit percentage increases in volumes for the platform-based business models in the first quarter of this year. These growth rates were once again well above those of the respective markets in which the businesses operate.

Credit Platform segment: In the first three months of 2022, Europace increased its transaction volume* by a very substantial 26 per cent. The total volume across all product groups climbed to €34 billion, while the transaction volume per sales day** of €528 million exceeded half a billion euros for the first time. Mortgage finance, which is by far the largest product group, saw its transaction volume grow by 26 per cent to €28 billion. The transaction volume in the second-largest product group, building finance, amounted to €4 billion, a sharp rise of 22 per cent. This growth rate was outstripped only by that of the smallest product group, personal loans, where the volume swelled by 40 per cent to €1 billion.

FINMAS, the sub-marketplace for institutions in the savings banks sector, increased its volume of transactions* by 31 per cent to €3.5 billion in the first three months of 2022. In the cooperative banking sector, institutions used the dedicated GENOPACE sub-marketplace to generate a volume of €4.5 billion, an impressive jump of 47 per cent. Alongside these groups of banks, the volume generated by non-captive financial product distributors and private commercial banks also expanded at a faster rate than the market, with increases of over 20 per cent and 15 per cent respectively.

Private Clients segment: The volume brokered by Dr. Klein* advanced by 34 per cent to €3.5 billion in the first quarter of 2022.

Real Estate Platform segment: The value of residential properties inspected and appraised by Value AG went up by 16 per cent to €9 billion. The value of the properties sold through the FIO platform fell slightly, by 8 per cent, to €4 billion owing to the smaller number of properties available for sale. The Dr. Klein WoWi property financing platform increased its volume by 15 per cent to €585 million.

Insurance Platform segment: Migration of the insurance portfolios from the individual solutions of acquirees to the centralised SMART INSUR platform is continuing to progress well. The portfolio volume on SMART INSUR grew by 23 per cent to a total of €3.5 billion.

Ronald Slabke, Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport SE, expressed his satisfaction with the Company's start to 2022: "The quarterly transaction volume on Europace exceeded €30 billion for the first time. Back in 2019, we would have needed six months to generate such a volume. This trend reflects our market report on the funding stop for energy-efficient buildings, the risk buffer requirement for banks in respect of residential mortgages, a supposed property bubble and the impact of a shift in interest-rate policy, which we published at the start of February. We have made it very clear that we - contrary to the views of some market observers - do not believe our mortgage finance business models will be adversely affected by these issues. In fact, we anticipate strong growth in 2022. And we have made a good start in the first quarter."
