We’re pleased to say that last night Octopus Choice won the Peer-to-peer Loan Provider of the Year Award at the 2018 MoneyAge Awards.

Nominated alongside both Ratesetter and Assetz Capital, it’s recognition of the work the team has done to break Octopus Choice into the mainstream of peer-to-peer lenders.

“It’s always great to be recognised for the work we’re doing to try and make managing money easier for both investors and financial advisers," said Sam Handfield-Jones, Chief Product Officer.

"Over the last year, Octopus Choice has doubled in size. Alongside launching our innovative finance ISA, we also became one of the only peer-to-peer lenders with an investing app for both iPhone and Android devices. It’s now just as easy to sign up and manage your Octopus Choice account on your phone as it is on your computer.

It’s exciting times for Octopus Choice – and we’re really grateful for this award.”

The MoneyAge awards are open to any business in the UK, and are determined by an independent panel of highly experienced judges spanning the various fields of personal finance.

Kaustav Mitra, Head of Growth, who attended the awards, commented “it was a fun evening, and great to be alongside loads of great companies. We’re really pleased to have won the award – it reflects all the hard work the team puts in every day to innovate, and at the same time win the trust of our customers.”
