Peer-to-peer lender Funding Circle took home three awards this year, including the coveted "Editor’s Choice" award. LendInvest won twice, scoring "Alternative Finance Platform of the Year" and the "One To Watch" award. The “People’s Choice” award went yet again to Latvian lender Mintos, after receiving the most votes in the poll.
Staying true to our namesake, the 2017 AltFi Awards Winners’ Evening took place on January 17th at the unconventional darts venue Flight Club in Bloomsbury. Victors from across 20 categories celebrated their wins in style, with a darts tournament, pizza boards, and drinks flowing freely.
