Zopa wins Top Consumer Lending Platform at LendIt awards

We are very pleased to announce that Zopa has won Top Consumer Lending Platform at the LendIt Awards Ceremony in New York last night.

Beating off competition from US-based lenders such as SoFi and Avant, we’re excited to receive international recognition for our loan products. The award was voted on by 30 industry experts and based on a combination of loan performance, volume, growth, and product diversity.

The win caps off an exciting few weeks at Zopa, having been named Best Personal Loan Provider and Best Alternative Finance Provider at the British Bank Awards, as well being awarded Superbrand status for the first time.

Putting customers at the heart of everything we do

Zopa CEO Jaidev Janardana said, “We’re delighted to have won the Top Consumer Lending Platform at the first LendIt Awards. Since founding the peer-to-peer industry in 2005, our customers have borrowed more than £2bn in low-interest, unsecured loans, with over £700 million borrowed in the last 12 months alone. We see this award as an important acknowledgement of our culture of putting customers at the heart of everything we do, and our range of fair, simple and excellent value products.”
