A winning week for Zopa

We’re pleased to announce that Zopa has picked up some more accolades in December.

We took home a number of prizes from the alternative finance industry news experts at AltFi, as well as Best P2P Lending Platform at the F5 awards.

Altfi Awards

Our first award from AltFi was the Editor’s Choice Award. The AltFi team members awarded this title to the platform that has had the greatest impact on the industry in 2016. The second was for Best Clarity of Data, which was determined by analysis from the AltFi Data team and recognises the quality of the data we share with the industry and our customers. We believe this level of transparency is extremely important and we were among the first P2P lenders to start sharing their loan book with AltFi in February 2015, so it was great to receive this award. We also came runner up in the P2P Consumer Platform of the Year category.

Zopa’s executive chairman and co-founder Giles Andrews received the Special Industry Contribution award. This was selected by an expert panel of judges and awarded to the individual who has had the greatest impact on the industry in 2016.

F5 Awards – Best P2P Lending Platform

Zopa also won the Best P2P Lending Platform at the F5 awards, which celebrate the pioneers of non-traditional finance. The F5 awards ceremony was held in the Hilton Bankside Hotel, and were organised by Credit Strategy magazine.

We are very proud to have these as additions to our trophy cabinet, and we look forward to adding many more in 2017!
