Zopa, the pioneering financial services company, is the UK’s leading peer-to-peer consumer lending platform. It offers simple loans and smart investments and has lent more than £2.5 billion to UK customers. It was voted MoneySuperMarket's Best Personal Loans Provider 2016 and Moneywise’s Most Trusted Loan Provider seven years running. Since pioneering the peer-to-peer lending model, Zopa has built an excellent track record of prudently managing risk. Zopa is unique amongst its financial peers, in that it operated during the financial crisis and continued providing positive returns to investors throughout. In November 2016, Zopa announced its intention to launch a next generation bank.
