“This is a remarkable achievement for our company, which is still only just over two-years old. To be nominated in these categories for such esteemed awards is a great honour in itself, but to have won Best Peer-to-Peer Platform for Savers – and indeed receive the Highly Commended credit in the two other categories – is quite extraordinary. Our focus has always, and will always, be on genuinely putting the customer first, so to have been given this nod of approval by the UK consumer is hugely rewarding.

We now look forward to building on this success, and going on to do even better things within the P2P lending sector, and indeed within the wider personal finance industry.”
