He is one of the longest serving P2P executives in this ever-changing sector, having joined as portfolio manager at the platform in 2015.

Jason Ferrando, easyMoney Ferrando has been at the helm of easyMoney since August 2022, having been head of lending at the firm. Earlier this year easyMoney announced profit of more than £1m in 2022, almost twice the value of its 2021 profits.

Narinder Khattoare, chief executive, Kuflink As chief executive of Kuflink, Khattoare has grown the property lending platform to become one of the biggest names in the sector, with a loan book in excess of £220m and zero investor losses reported to date. Kuflink is aiming to grow its loan book to £0.5bn by the end of 2025 as it scales rapidly with new hires and upcoming product launches. Khattoare also has his eye on an IPO as soon as the time is right. Uma Rajah, CapitalRise Rajah has almost ten years of fintech experience, having joined CapitalRise from consumer lending business Wonga in 2015. CapitalRise recently surpassed £300m in loans originated to date. The prime property investment platform has funded developments across London and the Home Counties valued at £822m.

Shojin has been profitable for the last three years, posting core earnings of around £500,000 in its latest annual results.
