The awards provide a forum to reward excellence and best practice within the alternative lending industry. Rewarding distinguished new-era businesses paving the way and re-designing consumer and business lending, the night will also publicly recognise the expertise of technological and regulatory leaders in the industry.


The awards are independently judged and culminate in a prestigious black tie dinner and ceremony at The Hilton London Bankside Hotel, providing an excellent forum for celebrating success and unparalleled networking opportunities.




Those that make the shortlist process and are nominated, and especially the winners, will be able to tangibly demonstrate the quality of their product.
