Commenting on the awards, Keith Kilcourse, Credit & Loans Publisher at finder.com, said:
“The past few years have 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 significantly, 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!”

The shortlist of finalists in each category was selected by Finder’s subject area specialists, who identified the providers they felt were displaying key innovations in their field.
This shortlist was then passed to an expert judging panel, who decided the winning and highly commended companies by assessing the finalists across three different criteria: uniqueness of innovation, impact in the market and value to customers.
