Commercial and consumer lenders came together to celebrate those leading the way in their respective sectors, whether it be through customer service, innovation, credit risk, compliance or data.

 

The ceremonies took place at the same time due to synergies across the two awards programmes; many of the same companies entered, attended and were shortlisted across both.

 

The F5 Awards, sponsored by Curo Transatlantic, returned for its second year while the Commercial Finance Awards, sponsored by Experian, made its debut.

 

A range of alternative lenders, peer-to-peer lender lenders, fintech businesses credit information providers and technology suppliers were joined by well-known names in the leasing, asset finance and commercial lending space to celebrate their successes.

 

Big winners on the night included business lender Iwoca, Close Brothers Asset Finance, and two individuals who were personally rewarded for their work in alternative lending - Chris de Boer of Lending Stream and Robert Samual of Piggy Bank. Funding Options (pictured below), took home the award for Best Commercial Finance Broker.

 

 

During the night guests raised £1,870 for The Children’s Trust, a charity that runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK, including the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with brain injuries.

 

Guests were also entertained during the awards by magician Tom London who is a member of the prestigious Magic Circle and gained worldwide recognition after appearing on America’s Got Talent.

 

You can see the winners on the events pages for the F5: Future of Finance and Commercial Finance Awards.

 

The evening followed the F5: Future of Finance Conference, also sponsored by Curo Transatlantic, and the inaugural Commercial Finance Conference.

 

The Commercial Finance Conference looked at the full life-cycle for commercial finance organisations from front end, decisioning and customer interaction right through to back office functions.

 

The F5 Conference brought together online-only lenders, fintechs, peer-to-peer lenders and high-cost, short-term credit providers, as well as investors in alternative lending companies.

 

Other event sponsors and supporters across the day included CCTA, Confused.com, the CSA, the CFA, CRS, NACFB and Simon Kucher & Partners.

 

A full analysis of the conferences will be published in the December issue of Credit Strategy magazine.
