North West fintech startup Mojo Mortgages scooped the top award for innovation at last week’s annual British Bank Awards.
The online broker, which recently secured £7million in Series A funding, beat out big names like First Direct, Revolut and Habito to take the title, which recognises ingenuity in the financial services sector.
The innovation award is one of six top-level awards voted for by the public. The award was given to Mojo for their suite of innovative partnership platform APIs, that powers their partners to develop their mortgage service using our unique technology.
It also comes hot on the heels of Mojo launching its Mortgage Matcher technology, which matches customers with their ideal mortgages in just 15 minutes and allows them to filter their matches by mortgage type, term and more.
Mojo also took home the Best Mortgage Broker trophy and was a finalist in the Best Newcomer category.
Mojo co-founder and CEO Richard Hayes said: “We were delighted to just be named as finalists, but to come home with two awards is fantastic – especially since we were up against strong competition and some companies that we really admire.
“Both wins are a testament to the team we’re building and to the potential of Mojo. The innovation we’ve been recognised for is just the beginning. We’ve got some really exciting plans to help us create a better mortgage experience and we can’t wait to share them with our customers.”
Michael Fotis, Founder of Smart Money People said, “Previous winners of our ‘Innovation of the Year’ award, powered by Bud, have helped to shape the future of finance. We can’t wait to see what Mojo Mortgages has in store for the rest of 2019.”
