Lendable is on a mission to make consumer finance amazing: faster, cheaper, and friendlier.
We’re building one of the world’s leading fintech companies and are off to a strong start:
One of the UK’s unicorns with a team of >250 people
Among the top 10 fastest-growing tech companies in the UK
Profitable since 2017
Backed by top investors including Balderton Capital, Goldman Sachs and most recently OTPP (Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan) in 2022
Loved by customers with the best reviews in the market (4.9/5 across 10,000s of reviews)
So far, we’ve rebuilt the Big Three consumer finance products from scratch: loans, credit cards and car finance. We get money into our customers’ hands in minutes instead of days.
We’re growing fast, and there’s a lot more to do: we’re going after the two biggest Western markets (UK and US) where trillions are held by big banks with dated systems and painful processes. We launched our loans product in the US in 2022 with more product launches to follow this year!
