Rod Lockhart, Chief Executive Officer, said:
“The LendInvest team has accomplished a huge amount over the past year.
From becoming the first UK Fintech to securitise its own assets with a £259 million oversubscribed transaction last summer, then completing our second securitisation just nine months later during a global pandemic; to making our break into the home owner mortgage market with the launch of our first regulated product, it has been another year of milestones for LendInvest.
Despite the undoubtedly challenging couple of months we have all endured, stepping into the role of CEO this year as the business has continued to scale; investing in innovation and throughout it all, maintaining a consistent EBITDA for the sixth year running, has shown me we certainly have reason to be optimistic for the year ahead.”
