Commenting on the awards, Chris Lilly, Credit & Loans Publisher at finder.com, said: “The last year or so has been tough for the lending sector – with the calculation of risk presenting unprecedented challenges, and with ever-increasing regulatory pressures. So, against this backdrop, it was fantastic to see real innovation continuing.
“Consumer spending and borrowing habits and needs have changed, and there’s no doubt that having innovative lending, credit, mortgage and shopping solutions that work for a range of situations will have been very helpful. Congratulations to all the winning and highly commended companies!”
