An award-winning year!

By John Battersby

We're a modest bunch at RateSetter, but we couldn’t help but notice that we’ve had a particularly bumper year for award wins! Here are some of the highlights:

We had a very strong start to the year, winning Best Consumer Peer-to-Peer Lender in the 2018 Moneynet.co.uk Awards, and three weeks later our customers voted us Best Peer-to-Peer Provider of the Year (and commended us for our customer service) at the Moneyfacts 2018 Consumer Awards.

April saw the Financial Times name RateSetter in its list of the top 1000 fastest growing companies in Europe, on the basis of our consistently robust growth over the past three years.

In May, we were thrilled to win Alternative Lender of the Year at the Credit Awards 2018, recognising the launch of our innovative Hire Purchase finance products and our consumer credit decisioning capabilities and quotes for consumer loan applications.

September saw the Financial Times name RateSetter in its inaugural Future 100 – the FT’s list of fast growing British companies that are also making an impact on society or their industry.

Then in November, we won Best P2P Lending Platform at the Lending Awards 2018, reflecting our success in opening access to returns from loans to everyone in a simple and modern way.

And we have rounded the year off with the fantastic achievement of being voted the Best Peer-to-Peer Lender by Financial Times and Investors Chronicle readers at the Wealth Management Awards 2018!
