Nice interview with Andrew Lawson, Product officer ZOPA on the journey and future. "Customer feedback was the catalyst to our new banking products and building alternative financial options that work in harmony alongside our P2P offering."
We spoke to Andrew Lawson, chief product officer at Zopa, about the peer-to-peer market, Zopa's new banking licence, and what investors are looking for in the current economic climate. FR: As chief product officer at Zopa, can you tell us a little bit about Zopa, your role and what a typical day looks like for you? Launched in 2005, Zopa pioneered peer-to-peer (P2P) lending globally, giving people access to simple, fair loans and investments. Since then, its helped half a million customers get the most from their money and approved over £4bn in personal loans. In December 2018, Zopa received its bank licence with restrictions to offer UK customers a unique mix of banking and P2P products.
